Artturi Lehkonen scores in overtime, Canadiens advance to Stanley Cup final

MONTREAL — The Montreal Canadiens are off to their first Stanley Cup final since 1993.

Artturi Lehkonen scored at 1:39 of overtime as the Canadiens downed the Vegas Golden Knights 3-2 on Thursday to win their third-round series 4-2.

The winger took a feed from Phillip Danault off the rush in the extra period and fired his third off the playoffs upstairs on Robin Lehner to set off wild scenes inside and outside the Bell Centre.

Carey Price stopped 37 shots for Montreal, which will look to end Canada's championship drought that stretches back to the franchise's last title 28 years ago.
