Vanquished: Vegas Golden Knights Bow in OT to Canadiens



Vegas Golden Knights Montreal Canadiens OT Game 6

The Montreal Canadiens defeated the Vegas Golden Knights in overtime of Game 6 to advance to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time since 1993.

A 500-1 long-shot to win the Stanley Cup at the start of the playoffs, the Canadiens used a smothering defensive game to limit the Vegas Golden Knights’ scoring throughout the series. The Canadiens also received top-level goaltending from Carey Price the entire series.

Artturi Lehkonen scored the game-winning goal 1:39 into overtime.
