The Vegas Golden Knights are hoisting the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history.

They dominated the Florida Panthers for most of the five-game championship series, capping it off with a 9-3 victory in Game 5.

The Golden Knights’ nine goals are the most by a team in a Stanley Cup-clinching win since the NHL’s formation in 1917-18. The six-goal margin of victory is the second-largest in a Cup-clinching win, exceeded by only the Pittsburgh Penguins’ 8-0 win over the Minnesota North Stars in 1991.

Tuesday’s big win made waves on social media.
