#1 The Tampa Bay Lightning are coming off a huge win from Thursday night in Toronto as they clipped the New York Islanders 2-1 in overtime to win in six games 4-2 to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals.

#3 Matt, Brayden Point returned for the Lightning on Thursday night and had four shots in 25:47 on the ice. He was out and the team medical staff really got him turned around after he took a hit from the Islanders Adam Pelech.

#4 Looking at tonight’s Stanley Cup Finals all games will be played in Edmonton which should give both the Lightning and the Dallas Stars time to focus on morning skates, meetings, no traveling, another series with a quite empty rink, and game one tonight.

#5 The Stars had some great help getting to the Finals with a shocking defeat over the Vegas Golden Knights in the Western Conference Finals how do you see Dallas matching up with the Lightning for game 1 tonight.

On the NHL Stanley Cup Finals podcast with Matt:

#1 Matt talks about St. Louis Blues forward Oskar Sundqvist, who was suspended for a game for his elbowing the Boston Bruins’ Matt Grzelcyk.

#2 Was the suspension of Sundqvist justifiable and with Sundqvist out of the lineup. how much of impact is that for the Blues?

#3 Blues captain David Backes said that at this rate if this keep up there won’t be any defensemen left. “It’s from behind, elevated, into his head, into the glass. If that’s a two-minute penalty, I think there’s going to be a shortage of defensemen in this series by the end of it. That’s in somebody else’s hands. That’s something I think if I’m making that hit, I’m probably watching from the bleachers for a few.” said Backes.

#4 Will the Bruins come out in Game 3 fired up because of the hit on Grzelcyk or will they be satisfied with the league decision to suspend Sundqvist?

#5 Game 3, the first of two in St. Louis series, is tied 1-1. Matt tells us his thoughts on the upcoming Games 3 and 4.
