STANLEY CUP FINALS - ROUND #4 (Best of 7)

Tampa Bay Lightning vs Calgary Flames
TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING WIN STANLEY CUP in 7 GAMES

 

Game 7 - Lightning 2  Flames 1 ( TAMPA BAY WINS SERIES 4-3 )

Ruslan Fedotenko scored twice as the Tampa Bay Lightning won the Stanley Cup The Flames made it interesting in the 3rd period, but it wasn't in the cards as the Cinderella Run finally passed midnight.

The Conn Smythe playoff MVP award went to Tampa's Brad Richards.  This is the Lightning's first Cup win in their short 12 year history.  It was an even more special night for 40-year-old Lightning captain Dave Andreychuk, who finally got to hoist the Stanley Cup after 22 NHL seasons, ending the NHL's longest streak (1,760 games) without a Cup.  Furthermore, the Bolts become the first team since Calgary's 1989 team to eliminate Montreal and go on to win it all.  Karma?  Fate?  Whatever the case, both teams played their hearts out, but for now, Congratulationss to Tampa Bay !

Game 6 - Lightning 3  Flames 2 ( 2 OT ) ( SERIES TIED 3-3 )

Martin St. Louis scored 33 seconds into the second overtime period to give the Lightning a 3-2 victory  over the Calgary Flames and force a seventh and deciding game Monday night in Tampa.  The first four goals were scored in the second period: Brad Richards on a power play at 4:17, Chris Clark into an open side of Tampa Bay net at 9:05, Richards on another power play at 10:52 and Marcus Nilson into another gaping net at 17:49.  To win the Stanley Cup now, the Flames will have to set a league playoff record for most road wins, 11. If they can do it, they'll become the first team in league history to win the Stanley Cup with a losing home record, 5-7.

Game 5 - Flames 3  Lightning 2 ( 1 OT ) ( CALGARY LEADS 3-2 )

Calgary's Martin Gelinas and Tampa Bay's Martin St. Louis traded goals in the first period. After Iginla gave the Flames a 2-1 lead in the second, Lightning winger Fredrik Modin tied it with a power play goal 37 seconds into the third.  Oleg Saprykin then scored 14:40 into overtime to lead the Flames to a 3-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning.  The Flames hold a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven final series and can claim the second Stanley Cup in franchise history and their first since 1989 with a win in Game 6 on Saturday night in Calgary.

Game 4 - Lightning 1  Flames 0 ( SERIES TIED 2-2 )

Brad Richards set a single-season playoff record with his seventh winning goal, scored after Tampa Bay got a rare two-man advantage in the third minute.  Nikolai Khabibulin stopped all 29 shots he faced to become the fifth goaltender in NHL history to post a fifth shutout in one playoff year. Tampa Bay is 8-0 when Richards scores, and improved to a 6-0 record in games following playoff losses, taking the momentum back to Tampa Bay for Game 5 with a 2 day rest period.

Game 3 - Flames 3  Lightning 0 ( CALGARY LEADS 2-1 )

With Calgary on the power play, Miikka Kiprusoff stopped Brad Richards on a shorthanded breakaway, and on the ensuing rush, Chris Simon scored to break the goose egg in the second period. Shean Donovan added to the Flames' lead on a pretty 2 on 1 play.  Jarome Iginla put the icing on the cake in the 3rd.  Kiprusoff posted his sixth shutout of the playoffs and is now 5-0 after a loss.

Game 2 - Lightning 4  Flames 1 ( SERIES TIED 1-1 )

Dan Boyle's house may have burned down during Game 1, but it didn't affect him one bit as he chipped in with a goal.  The Bolts' usual suspects of Brad Richards, Ruslan Fedotenko, Vincent Lecavalier, and Martin St. Louis provided the offense Tampa Bay fans were waiting for.  Ville Niemenen spoiled Nikolai Khabibulin's shutout bid.

Game 1 - Flames 4  Lightning 1 ( CALGARY LEADS 1-0 )

A fluke deflection goal off Martin Gelinas' skate and yet another shorthanded goal by Jarome Iginla sealed the deal as the Flames drew first blood.
