We’re two days into the Stanley Cup Playoffs, which is something that we weren’t sure we were ever going to say this year.
Of course, these Playoffs aren’t without their oddities. The fanlessness, the fact that the teams and their personnel are all quarantined in bubbles, and the way games are being played one after another in the same venues are all adding to the strangeness of it all.
Still, though, it’s Playoffs, and they’re awesome.
Many had their doubts about whether or not we’d get to this point, and lots of the reason that the restart has been so successful had been because of the strict guidelines surrounding the bubble. Of course, this means players are far from their families, friends, and the rest of civilization.
We’ve seen teams get pretty creative with how they’re spending the time in quarantine, and tonight, the Vegas Golden Knights had a teenage-romcom-worthy movie night, complete with a little makeshift fire.
They’re even keeping an eye on the Blue Jays game!
Looks like an ideal evening to us.
