Game five of the Stanley Cup Finals is tonight and the Montreal Canadiens had their moment. They needed overtime to beat the Tampa Bay Lightning in game four at home.
Now returning to Tampa, the Lightning are poised to win the Cup on their home ice.
Tampa has out skated, out shot, and out played Montreal all series long. Now that they are back on their home ice, expect more of the same and Nikita Kucherov and Co. should be hoisting Lord Stanley’s Cup by the end of the night.
The Lightning won the Cup last year as well. There will certainly be a party in that city when they win. The fans have been treated to a Stanley Cup and Super Bowl victory in the past 12 months, but haven’t been able to enjoy it to its fullest due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Now that many restrictions are lifted, expect the Cup to parade around that city (and the water) like you have never seen.
