EDMONTON, AB — Pop the champagne. Break out the Western Conference Champion hats and shirts. The Dallas Stars are headed to their first Stanley Cup Final in 20 years.
Game 5 of the Western Conference Final between the Stars and Vegas Golden Knights was as thrilling and theatrical as seemingly every Stars game since the season resumed Aug. 3.
Three minutes and 36 seconds into overtime, Denis Gurianov slapped a one-timer past Knights goalie Robin Lehner to launch the Stars to the Cup final, 3-2.
The power-play goal was Gurianov's ninth of the postseason.
The Stars eliminated the Knights to win the series 4-1. They're onto the Stanley Cup Final for the first time since 2000 -- when they lost to the New Jersey Devils.
Trailing 2-0 in the third period, the Stars mounted yet another comeback -- something they've grown accustomed to in 2019-2020 -- scoring two goals in the final 10 minutes and six seconds of regulation.
It started when captain Jamie Benn ripped the puck past Lehner for his third goal in the last three games.
