With the Stanley Cup in the building at T-Mobile Arena on Thursday, a two-time Cup winner took in the game as well.
Jaromir Jagr made the trip out to Las Vegas and decided to take in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final between one of his former teams, the Washington Capitals, and the Vegas Golden Knights. Jagr spoke in a video shared by the NHL on NBC Twitter account.
Jagr was full of praise for the newest NHL city.
"It's a great town. It's a great hockey town actually," Jagr said in the short clip. "Gary Bettman did a great job to put hockey in Las Vegas."
After the Cup-clinching victory for the Capitals, Jagr said Ovechkin earned the right to be called a champion.
"I don't know what it means to him. It's probably the pressure off. Nobody going to talk about it. It's huge. But on the one side, it's not easy to win the Cup. It's not easy. But he truly deserves it. I didn't see many games, but what I saw the last three games he played the best I saw him play in the last 10 years for sure. He got better," Jagr told NHL.com.
