Goode’s goal allowed the Chargers to surpass the Islanders and laid the groundwork for the Stanley Cup final with Habs
Andrei Vasilevskiy made 18 saves, and Yanni Gourde helped Tanzania in the 7th game of the NHL playoff semi-final series on Friday night. The Pawan Chargers defeated the New York Islanders 1-0.
The defending champion advances to the Stanley Cup final against the surprising Montreal Canadiens, who defeated the Vegas Golden Cavaliers in another semifinal. The first game is scheduled to be held in Tampa at 8pm Eastern Time on Monday.
Goode defeated Anthony Cirelli’s pass at 1:49 in the second quarter and defeated the islanders goalkeeper Semyon Varlamov. Vasilevsky rejected 7 shots in the final stage. This is the fifth time in his career that the playoffs have been suspended-the fourth time in the playoffs. This marked the first time in NHL history that the 7th game ended with a 1-0 open goal.
Vasilevskiy competed for his second Vezina trophy in three years, defeated the Islanders 8-0 in the 5th game, and rejected Florida and Carolina in the first two rounds. The Panthers and Hurricanes won the series.
Watch | Defending champion Chargers return to the Stanley Cup final:
Since the start of last year’s championship battle, the Chargers have led 14-0 in the game after losing the playoffs. They also recovered from losses in Game 2 and Game 5, defeated the Islanders, and have not lost consecutive playoffs since being swept by Columbus in the first round of 2019.
But with the Chargers playing relentless defense and also beating New York 31-18, chances are limited on Friday night.
Although the playoff scoring champions Nikita Kucherov and Braden Bonn did not get an important night on the offensive end, the Tampa Bay team entered the Cup final for the fourth time in franchise history. They scored at least one goal in a row. The consecutive games ended in 9 games-one less than the NHL playoff record.
Although he missed most of the sixth game due to injury, Kucherov still played. In the past 13 games, Point did not score a goal for the second time.
