And Darcy Kuemper in one win away of lifting the Cup, an oddity that hasn't been seen since Niemi.

Helpful to have an extra man on the ice in OT.

The NHL is always super generous with line changes. The moment a player straightens up and holds his stick vertical in one hand, he's invisible to linesmen.

If there hadn't been a goal here, no one would have cared about this line change or yelled about too many men.

I know. This is one where it absolutely is too many men by the rule book, but linesmen don't call it that way. They care if six guys are active in play, but if a guy is going to the bench, they ignore him unless the puck hits him.

They give so much leeway to line changes. It's why no Tampa player or coach was complaining about too many men after the goal. For everyone involved, this was a routine NHL line change.

I understand all that, and that it is absolutely the refs call. If no goal was scored, no prob. But a Stanley Cup final OT goal makes it’s a tough pill. Pretty sure Cooper complained, but that the way hockey go!

Do you think they’ve already engraved Val’s name on the Conn Smythe to save some time?

Is Makar the first Hobey Baker winner that has turned out to be a good player?

I definitely do remember Paul Kariya and Chris Drury from the 90s, though.

Also I just remembered Gaudreau. But obviously also not half the man that Hrkac was.

Watching Val and looking back at his playoff game log it's actually fairly obvious where the Stars went wrong with him.

The Stars -- in act of strategic and coaching ineptitude -- almost never decided to put him in a position where he would be constantly fed jaw dropping, amazing passes from Nathan Mackinnon.

We can avoid this pitfall with our newer prospects by trying to feed them Nathan Mackinnon passes as often as possible. We need to learn from our mistakes.

That was honestly not the series I thought it was gonna be. Colorado made Tampa look slow and tired pretty consistently.

Hopefully both Tampa fans aren't rioting right now.

And I think the "let them play" attitude kept Tampa in the series longer than they deserved from their play.
