A preview of the Stanley Cup Final between the Tampa Bay Lightning and Dallas Stars, including each team’s candidates for Conn Smythe, how they got to the Final and what they need to do to win the Cup.
The Dallas Stars clinched a spot in the Stanley Cup Final on Monday and could be joined by one of the two teams left in the East on Tuesday. Also a look at a new coaching hire in the Metropolitan Division as a familiar face goes to Washington.
The Flyers managed to rally back to make it a game, taking a 5-2 deficit to a 5-4 deficit early in the third, but that was as close as they would get in yet another loss on the road, this time to the Vegas Golden Knights.
A four-goal second matched the production from the previous two games for the Flyers, ironically in a period that Alain Vigneault called the team's worst of the last eight. Observations from the Flyers win over the Golden Knights.
Monday's game provides another chance to right the ship, and there will be two new faces in the lineup trying to provide a spark. 19-year-old Joel Farabee makes his NHL debut and Mikhail Vorobyev joins the lineup as well in a tough test for the Flyers against the Vegas Golden Knights.
