This could be it! With three wins under their belt in the Eastern Conference Finals of the NHL Playoffs, the Tampa Bay Lightning have a chance to knock out the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 6 and advance to their second straight Stanley Cup. Don’t miss the excitement with a live stream right here!
Will the Tampa Bay Lightning get a shot at Stanley Cup redemption? After losing to the Chicago Blackhawks in the finals last year, the Bolts have played with no mercy in the 2016 NHL playoffs and are likely ready to do the same on May 24 as they take on the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 6 of the conference finals. With elimination on the line, this is going to be one heck of a battle — and HollywoodLife.com wants you to be tuned in to every second with a live stream!
Every game in this series has been close, with Game 2 and Game 5 even going into overtime. Clearly these teams are pretty evenly matched, so this really could be anybody’s game. But considering the Lightning are just one win away from returning to the Stanley Cup and they’re at home, it’s going to be a tough one for the Penguins!
One thing that the Penguins can try to take advantage of, though, is that the Lightning’s starting goalie, Ben Bishop — who was in the net for both close-out games in the Bolts’ earlier playoff series — isn’t expected to play once again in Game 6. Andrei Vasilevskiy will make his fifth start in the series as Ben continues to recover from a lower body injury.
No matter who’s in the Lightning’s net, Penguins Head Coach Mike Sullivan is confident his guys will put up their best fight in order to avoid elimination. Besides, they did manage to take a win from the Lightning in Tampa just six days ago!
”This group has done a terrific job all year of just staying in the moment and not dwelling on the past, not getting ahead of itself, and just trying to focus on that one game in hand,” Mike told Yahoo Sports, ”and that’s what we’re going to have to do.”
The Lightning have managed to shut out their opponents in their previous two series close-outs — but after such a close Eastern Conference Finals, it might not be so easy to shut the Penguins down tonight. Make sure you tune in to see what happens!
