The Stanley Cup final begins tomorrow as the Las Vegas Golden Knights open at home to the Washington Capitals.
A friendly wager has started up between teh Dauphin Kings of Manitoba and the Summerside Western Capitals. Both are Jr. A teams that were once coached by the two head coaches in the finals.
Barry Trotz of the Capitals coached Dauphin and Gerard Gallant of the Golden Knights coached the Caps to the Royal Bank Cup in 1997.
Darren Millard of Hockey Central on Sportsnet suggested the wager.
If Vegas wins the Summerside Caps get some perogies.
If Washington wins the Caps will have to send Dauphin some lobster.
Summerside is already in.
Meantime, lots of signs on commercial properties around Summerside supporting Turk Gallant in the quest for the Cup.
There’s also a sign up supporting Kinkora High alumnus assistant coach Mike Kelly at the high school.
