Scores from Blake Coleman and Brayden Point and twenty-two-save shutout by Andrei Vasilevskiy in the Game six were sufficient to rule the Tampa Bay Lighting to some familiar territory.

The Cup is presented by the Commissioner Gary Bettman, and that’s an unreal moment for the captain of Tampa Bay Lightning.
