They have finally done it. The Tampa Bay Lightning have a history of choking playoff runs that result in nothing but disappointment. They have buried that to the grave big time. Your Tampa Bay Lightning has defeated the Dallas Stars 2-0 in game six to clinch their second Stanley Cup Championship in franchise history. Andrei Vasilevski gets the shutout and has improved to 7-0 following a loss in these Stanley Cup Playoffs. That ties an NHL record for one playoff run.

What a magical run by the Lightning to win the best trophy in professional sports. They avenged last year’s embarrassment to Columbus by eliminating them in five games. Following that was a beatdown of Beantown in five games as well. They fended off the Isles in six games in the ECF. Now, they win the Stanley Cup over the Dallas Stars in six games.
The first line was the core of all their success this run and the play of Victor Hedman. Congratulations to the Tampa Bay Lightning. You are the 2020 Stanley Cup Champions. As for Dallas? Pack your shit. The NHL bubble has spoken.
