Lehkonen jumped on the chance to hit Robin Lehner into the top of the net with a shot.

It’s a magical play. With this 3-2 win in overtime, the Canadian eliminated the Vegas Golden Knights in six games.

I hung the Martinez stick a little. It was a big goal from Lehky, but also a good entry to the zone from Gali. It was memorable. ”

“Saint-Jean greetings to all,” Donald said, biting into his pizza piece. This is unique. I thought something big was going on today. This is really extraordinary. I had a hard time finding the right words. We want more, we want to win. We did nothing this whole way. We are hungry. “
