Monday, 06.15.2015 / 2:06 PM / Lightning vs Blackhawks - 2015 Stanley Cup Final

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

CHICAGO -- The Stanley Cup might be in the building at some point Monday night. It also might not be.

It's not a foregone conclusion that the Cup will enter United Center at any point during Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final between the Chicago Blackhawks and Tampa Bay Lightning (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, TVA Sports). The score dictates its potential arrival.

The Lightning want to do everything they can to keep it out. The Blackhawks want to raise it up.

Here are three keys for each team in order to accomplish what they want to make happen:

OHL draft snub Cirelli emerges as Memorial Cup hero

Monday, 06.15.2015 / 3:00 AM / 2015 NHL Draft

Adam Kimelman - Deputy Managing Editor

Oshawa Generals forward Anthony Cirelli couldn't believe where he was or what he had done.

There he was, inches in front of Kelowna Rockets goaltender Jackson Whistle in overtime of the championship game of the Memorial Cup. Then a loose puck popped onto his stick with an empty net to shoot it into.

"It was kind of a blur," Cirelli said. "I remember it going in. Then we were hoisting the cup."

Cirelli scored both goals in a 2-1 win that clinched Oshawa its first Memorial Cup title since 1990.

Oshawa's lineup for the championship game featured seven players who had been drafted by NHL teams, two in the first round, and another who could go late in the first round of the 2015 NHL Draft.

But it was Cirelli, passed over twice in the Ontario Hockey League draft, who made it to the Generals after surviving two training camps, that had the biggest moment of the season.

Blackwood, Vladar among top goaltenders for draft

Monday, 06.15.2015 / 3:00 AM / 2015 NHL Draft

Mike G. Morreale - Staff Writer

At a time when goaltenders are more athletic and better coached than ever, don't be surprised if a run on top prospects at the position ensues after the early rounds of the 2015 NHL Draft at BB&T Center in Sunrise, Fla., June 26-27.

"If this year has proven anything when it comes to goalies it's that having the ability to stick with it and work hard can lead to good things," said Al Jensen, NHL Central Scouting's top evaluator at the position. "There were so many goalies out there this year [in the NHL] who didn't make it at first. But when given an opportunity proved they could thrive."

Among the goalies who excelled this season after bumpy paths included Devan Dubnyk of the Minnesota Wild, Cam Talbot of the New York Rangers, Scott Darling of the Chicago Blackhawks and Andrew Hammond of the Ottawa Senators.

"Goalie is also a position where when you get on a roll, your confidence rolls and the puck begins to look like a beach ball," Jensen said. "There isn't a whole lot of difference between stopping pucks in the American Hockey League and the National Hockey League."
