THREE HARD LAPS
* The 2020 Stanley Cup Final will begin on Saturday after Anthony Cirelli scored his first career playoff overtime goal to send the Lightning to the championship series where they will face the Stars – both franchises are in search of their second Stanley Cup.
* Tampa Bay improved to 6-1 in games that required overtime in the 2020 postseason. No team has played more overtime minutes in a single playoff year than the Lightning (185:17).
* The Lightning are the first of the 10 NHL franchises to debut in the 90s or later to reach the Stanley Cup Final three times (2004, 2015 and 2020).
