TAMPA, Fla. —
It only took scoring once for the Tampa Bay Lightning to strike twice and repeat as Stanley Cup champions. Backstopped by their playoff MVP goaltender and the only two Tampa Bay players on the ice without their name on the Cup, the Lightning won it all for the second time in 10 months by beating the Montreal Canadiens 1-0 in Game 5 on Wednesday night.
