Stanley Cup champions
Tampa Bay Lightning 🏒 repeat as Stanley Cup champions 🏆
What seemed inevitable finally was written in the history books as the Tampa Bay Lightning secured their second straight Stanley Cup with a 1-0 victory over the Montreal Canadiens in five games. This time the Lightning get to celebrate in front of their fans and a packed house at Amalie Arena. The man who scored the game winning goal wasn’t as foreseen when depth forward Ross Colton beat his man (a large defender) to the front of the net in the second period to score that all-important tally. Deservedly Andrei Vasilevskiy earned the Conn Smythe Trophy after he posted his fifth consecutive series clinching shutout.
