Stanley Cup Final Notes

October 1, 2020

The victory in the Stanley Cup final by the Tampa Bay Lightning was the 5th straight for a team that lost (4-1) in game 1 of the Cup Final. Tampa Bay lost (4-1) in the opening game of its other Cup winning final, that in ’04 vs the Calgary Flames.

Here’s another one, only I could cite:

In the last four (2-0) Cup clinchers, all in six games, the two goal scorers for each team had the same first initial, twice each in their first name and twice each with their first name.

Add “B”rayden Point and “B”lake Coleman to the six names cited in my post from 2017, after the Pittsburgh Penguins repeated as champions for the second time in franchise history (’91 and ’92, the other time).

Click below for the six names.
