In 2015, the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-0 in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final. Both goals looked similar to the ones we saw tonight.

The Hockey Gods have given the Tampa Bay Lightning some redemption after struggling in the playoffs after being one of the best regular-season teams since the early-to-mid 2010s. The Chicago Blackhawks beat the Lightning 2-0 in the 2015 Stanley Cup in Game 6. It’s fitting, as that’s what the Lightning just did to the Stars.

As someone who has seen the Lightning choke away great teams, I didn’t believe they’d win the Stanley Cup until I saw it.

The fact that not only did they win the Stanley Cup, but their two goals were similar to Duncan Keith‘s and Patrick Kane‘s in Game 6 of the 2015 Stanley Cup Final is weird. Just like Keith did, Victor Hedman got the Conn Smythe Trophy.

A thread of the goals:

It’s taken this team a long time to win the Stanley Cup with those core players. It’ll be interesting to see where they go from here, as they have a great team around them. Could they be the next hockey dynasty?

It’s just too eerie to see them win 2-0 with both of their goals being very similar to the ones the Hawks scored on them just 5-years ago.
