Stanley Cup final score, highlights, updates as Tampa Bay look to win the series – .


The 2021 NHL season could come to a close tonight as the Tampa Bay Lightning look to win a second straight Stanley Cup with a sweep from the Montreal Canadiens. Tampa Bay led the series on both sides of the ice, edging the Canadiens 14-5 while goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy posted a .948 save percentage.

The Lightning won Game 3 – the first game of the Stanley Cup Final played in Montreal since 1993 – 6-3 behind a pair of goals from Tyler Johnson and a great night between the posts for Vasilevskiy, who fought off 32 of the 35 shots he faced from Montreal. The Canadiens will need to find some offense and get Carey Price back on track if they are to make any noise in this series. Price didn’t play well, posting a 0.835 save percentage in the first three games.

With a win, Tampa Bay would become the first team since the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2016 and 2017 to win the Stanley Cup in consecutive seasons, and would be the first team to sweep the final since the Detroit Red Wings swept Washington. capitals in 1998.

Puck drop is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET on NBC (stream on fuboTV, try for free) at the Bell Center in Montreal.
