After six years as an NHL franchise, the Vegas Golden Knights captured their first Stanley Cup victory a few months back, but it clearly didn't come easy at all.
Playoffs in hockey are never easy, and after the highly publicized injury to Matthew Tkachuk
, there's no one out there that should doubt this fact, and now, Mark Stone
has given us even more reason to believe it.
On the latest episode of The Pat McAfee Show, Stone was a guest and revealed the excruciating injury that he suffered in the Stanley Cup Finals clinching game.
According to Stone, he suffered a broken wrist on a slash early in the game, but after 'taking some stuff' between periods combined with the adrenaline, he came back out to score a Stanley Cup Finals hat-trick.
It was the first hat-trick in a Stanley Cup clinching game since way back in 1922, and after what he went through just to get back on the ice this season, it's easy to see why the team made Stone their captain.
