Matthew Tkachuk of the Florida Panthers has scored yet another game-winning goal in the Eastern Conference Finals against the Carolina Hurricanes. This winning goal has secured the Panama team’s position in the Stanley Cup Finals, becoming the only wild-card team to reach that far in the history of the NHL expansion era. Tkachuk has scored 21 goals in 16 games this postseason and has assisted Sam Reinhart in Game 3, contributing to the Panthers’ domination against the Hurricanes.
The Celtics are trying to make a comeback in the NBA playoffs against the Miami Heat. They are currently down 3-1, but the Celtics have a history of performing well in the past when facing elimination. However, they remain unlikely to win the series, though Games 5 and 7 (if they make it that far) will be played at home.
The Arizona Coyotes have been in a turmoil state for 25 years, and the consideration of moving them to another city has been on the table for a while. The physical housing situation for the team over the next few years remains uncertain after Tempe voters rejected a proposal to build a new arena and entertainment complex in Tempe. With the Tempe plan now scrapped, the Coyotes will stay at Mallet Arena for the next two seasons.
