After 56 games into the playoffs and three exciting rounds, the Stanley Cup final is here.
A team, the defending champion Chargers, is expected to appear here. The other, the Canadians — they fired their coach in February — are not. However, all of this has no practical meaning now. Regardless of how and why, both teams have won the right to fight for the ultimate sports award.
The Chargers captain Steven Stamkos said after his team defeated the Islanders: “They will get the best team so far and we will get the best team so far.” In the 7th game. “You can’t get to the final by luck. Every team that gets there deserves it.”
The Chargers brought a very strong offense, including NHL playoff scoring champion Nikita Kucherov (27 points) and Brayden Point top scorer (14 goals). Montreal brought the best lockout, and Phillip Danault and a group of kids who were tearing it apart-including Cole Caufield, who joined late in the season, joined the team after winning the Hobey Baker award for the best player in college hockey.
Both teams bring heat between the pipes. Andrei Vasilevskiy announced a 0.936 save rate, 1.99 goals and 4 lockouts for Tampa Bay. Carey Price was there with a 0.934 save rate, 2.02 goals (higher than average) and a lockout. To be fair, the profit margins of these two goals are minimal.
Due to the COVID-19 agreement, Montreal will once again have no coach Dominique Ducharme sitting on the bench. For the same reason, Joel Armia’s status is also up in the air. Amia did fly to Tampa Bay on a private jet on Monday.
Sports news holds all the actions of the Chargers and Canadians in the Stanley Cup final (All time in the east).
