Well that escalated quickly… 2-1 Tampa

It felt like the Stars did very little wrong in the first period of game 3, they opportunities that should have given them the lead but couldn’t convert, then 2 mistakes by Stars top D-men, first Miro looses the puck and it’s 1-0 Tampa Bay, then a missed hit by Lindell sees the Stars down by 2.

In my view, a good day at the office, just not the right result. Too many penalties in the first, the officiating did not seem consistent throughout the game, but throughout the periods yes. Everything called in the first, most calls were made in the second and everything goes in the 3rd, but regardless, the Lightning managed to capitalize on their chances and it gave them an early 2-0 lead.

2018 NHL Stanley Cup Finals

The biggest story of the 2017-18 season was the Vegas Golden Knights, they has an unbelieve debut season and they have kept their foot on the gas throughout the playoffs, they awaited the result of the Tampa/Washington series and we now look forward to the final between the Vegas Golden Knights and the Washington Capitals. History has already been made as neither team has made it this far before… (goes without saying for the Golden Knights), however Washington has been a tough team to play against for several years, and many still struggle to believe the Ovechkin has not got the Capitals this far.

It will be an interesting series to watch!
