Last night’s Game 5 was an extremely tense affair that lasted nearly four hours. It was over 92 minutes of hockey before Anders Lee poked Kevin Shattenkirk’s whiff off the boards to himself to start a two-on-one that Jordan Eberle finished off.
The Stars will have to wait a little while longer before learning their opponent in the Stanley Cup Final.
“The boys battled hard tonight. We had some moments in the d-zone, especially in overtime where we had a broken stick, collapsed and just held on. To score that, continue to move on and give ourselves another chance in a couple of days is huge.” More from Eberle & Pulock: pic.twitter.com/MO53JxttbX
And there were some laughs from Johnny Boychuk and Semyon Varlamov—who played splendidly to keep the Isles alive last night—about the goalie’s “Pete Rose slide” into the celebratory bunch.
« I just jumped because I was so excited for us. Our season was on the line today, when we scored the goal it was just a lot of emotions going through in that moment. I was so happy for the guys and that we have a chance to continue to play.” ⬇️ Varlamov & Boychuk on the win! ⬇️ pic.twitter.com/GhXCjhpKnb
“Our guys didn’t waver, they just kept grinding and grinding and you can get some energy from it, no question. We didn’t give up and that’s a great sign going forward.” pic.twitter.com/ul6jCZFKzW
