    Canadiens beat Vegas to reach first NHL Final in 28 years

    Montreal's Artturi Lehkonen scored the winning goal 1:39 into overtime and the Canadiens advanced to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time since 1993 by beating Vegas 3-2 Thursday in the NHL playoffs. The 25-year-old Finnish left wing fired the puck high past Golden Knights goaltender Robin Lehner to give Montreal a four games to two victory in the best-of-seven semi-final series. "It's a pretty good feeling," Lehkonen said.
