The Competition

Mickey and Gina had an ambitious plan to make their mark in the underground Den of Thieves; throughout the season they found co-conspirators within almost all of the major teams promising a share in their glory. The best part was their plan to escape jail time: since all they wanted was recognition, once they secured proof of their misdeeds they had no reason to keep the trophy and would release it, forever shrouding the case in mystery to all but those involved. When a Wild Card team not only made it to the playoffs but secured an unprecedented victory over the most successful franchise in history they realized the flaw in their perfect plan: they weren’t the only ones intending to steal the Stanley Cup. While they were spreading themselves thin with contingency plans for their contingency plans, another group was laser focused on one team and ensuring their success by any means necessary.
