No Playoff Team? No Problem: The Eastern Conference Edition

We don’t shame bandwagon hoppers, because there’s a reason to cheer for any team.

If you’re not convinced, read on to our list of compelling reasons to cheer for each Eastern Conference  team, and be sure to check out our sound reasoning to cheer for each Western Conference team over here.

Washington Capitals
It may be an obvious one, but we’re going with Ovechkin here. While we could base his inclusion purely on the fact it would feel criminal for Alexander the Great NOT to lift the Cup, this well-known partier has low-key done some good for the community – and not even his own. Last fall he spotted a homeless man on the streets of Edmonton and bought him some clothes, he tried to secretly help out several orphans in Russia back in 2014, and this past season he promised 13-year old cancer survivor, Alex Luey, that he’d score a goal against the Leafs for him – and promptly scored three. Not even the most bitter of Leafs’ fans can deny how awesome that is.

About Shark Club Sports Bar:

Towering big screens, multiple satellite feeds and Pay Per View events make Shark Club sports bar your HQ for cheering hard –and playing hard– since 1993.

Shark Club fuses the intensity of a Major League sports bar with the comfort of your best friend’s Man Cave. Get loud. High-five strangers. Paint your belly. We don’t judge. We’re fans too.

Characterized by quality, driven by passion; each of Shark Club’s thirteen locations feature innovative menus crafted from carefully selected ingredients.

We take the game seriously — but there’s more to it than fantastic food and Hi-Def speakers. At Shark Club, it’s about living in the moment. Sharing emotions with a room full of people you just met. Waking up wearing the bottom half of a stolen mascot costume. (Yeah, we heard about that.)

So bring your passion. Because Shark Club is more than just a great sports bar.

It’s a game changer.
