The Montreal Canadiens are going to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time since 1993. Montreal defeated the Vegas Golden Knights 3-2 in Game 6 at home in overtime on Thursday to continue its improbable run. Artturi Lehkonen scored the winning goal 1:39 into OT.

No Canadian team has hoisted the Stanley Cup since Montreal won in 1993. Few predicted the Habs would be the last Canadian team standing this year. Ahead of the postseason, Caesars Sportsbook by William Hill listed Montreal at +3500 to win the Cup. Montreal had the worst regular-season record (.527 points percentage) of any team in the playoff field.

"Honestly, we wouldn't be here right now if we didn't believe," goaltender Carey Price said. "We always kind of stuck with it, not doubting ourselves."

The last Canadian team to reach the Stanley Cup Final was the 2011 Vancouver Canucks. Before this current 28-year title drought, the longest the NHL had gone without awarding a Stanley Cup to a Canadian team was a six-year stretch between 1936 to 1941.
