Open Thread: July 7th

Is tonight the night?

Despite facing an onslaught to open the game, and a double minor to captain Shea Weber at the end of regulation that continued into overtime, the Montreal Canadiens survived a very tense game 4 and have brought us to where we are tonight. The Tampa Bay Lightning are on the verge of repeating as Stanley Cup champions, and they can do it at home in front of their fans. For the Habs, they’ll need to complete the greatest comeback in Finals history to pull this off. These play-offs have been anything but predictable in many ways, but now that we’ve reached the end we are faced with the possibility that the best team is going to win going away. Is there one last twist left? Or does the King stay the King?
