Goalkeeper Martin Jones is the only Shark who has won the cup – as a backup netminder for the Los Angeles Kings in 2014 – while Dainius Zubrus is the only one of his teammates who has played in Stanley Cup final – actually in two; in 1997 with the Philadelphia Flyers and in 2012 with the New Jersey Devils (both losing efforts).

Much like when Shawn Michaels did to Bret Hart at Wrestlemania XII, the Tampa Bay Lightning delivered Sweet Chin Music to the Pittsburg Penguins at overtime in game 5, leaving them one win away from the Stanley Cup Finals. Adding insult to injury, the Penguins had invited the original Heartbreak Kid himself to attend the game. Michaels was in attendance wearing a Penguins jersey, after Pittsburg fans invited him to witness the HBK line of Carl Hagelin, Nick Bonino, and Phil Kessel, it all seemed like a celebration that came crashing down when Tyler Johnson scored after just 53 seconds of overtime. The Lighting now gets the series back at Tampa, looking to seal the deal.
