Dallas Stars To Play Tampa Bay Lightning In Stanley Cup Finals


The Dallas Stars now know their opponent in tomorrow night's Opening Game of the Stanley Cup finals.

Last night, the Tampa Bay Lightning eliminated New York from the Eastern Conference Finals in six games, beating the Islanders 2-to-1 in overtime.

This is the Lightning's first trip to the Stanley Cup finals since 2015 when they lost to Chicago.

For the Stars, it's the first return to the Finals since 2000 when they lost to the New Jersey Devils.

Each team has won the Stanley Cup once. The Stars in 1999 and the Lightning in 2004. They will meet in Game One tomorrow night at 6:30 p.m.
