After 56 games of sprinting for the playoffs and three heartbreaking 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.

Montreal brought the best lockout, Philip Dannott and a group of kids who were tearing it up-including Cole Caulfield, who joined late in the season, who joined the ball after winning the college hockey player award and the Hobby Baker award. team.
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 had a save rate of 0.934, 2.02 goals (above average) and parked there. To be fair, the profit margins of these two goals are minimal.
