The magical ride of the Vegas Golden Knights will have at least four more games. Vegas defeated the Winnipeg Jets 2-1 in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals in their first year of existence.

Naturally, the Twitterverse had a lot to say about the news.
The Vegas Golden Knights have made the Stanley Cup Final in their inaugural season. Not only that, they are 12-3 and have closed out three straight series on the road. They just beat the Winnipeg Jets four times in a row.
