LIFE OF PAI
Boston forward Daniel Paille scored his second game-winning goal in as many games, becoming the first player since 2006 – and only the second in the last 17 years – to record game-winning goals in consecutive Stanley Cup Final games (Edmonton’s Fernando Pisani, vs. Carolina in Games 5 and 6).
Someone scored consecutive game-winners in each of four straight Finals from 1992 through 1995: Pittsburgh’s Mario Lemieux in 1992, Montreal’s John LeClair in 1993, NY Rangers’ Glenn Anderson in 1994 and New Jersey’s Neal Broten in 1995. Each of their teams went on to win the Stanley Cup. (Elias)
