This is the fourth consecutive year that the Eastern Conference Final series has been decided in seven games. The winner will take on the Vegas Golden Knights in the Stanley Cup Finals.

Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy has been excellent this series: the 23-year-old Russian has allowed just nine goals in the last four games. Tampa Bay bounced back after losing the first two games of the Conference Finals. Braden Holtby made 24 saves for the Capitals in Game 6.
