TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Lightning have won the Stanley Cup for the second consecutive season.

They beat the Montreal Canadiens 1-0 to wrap up the series four games to one, with Ross Colton scoring in the second period. Andrei Vasilevskiy posted a series-ended shutout for an NHL-record fifth consecutive time dating to the 2020 final.

The victory came in front of over 18,000 fans at Amalie Arena, a far cry from last fall's win in an empty arena in Edmonton, Alberta.

Winning the series at home marks the first time since 2015 a team won the Cup on home ice. The last team to do it was Chicago.

The win continues the Tampa area's recent dominance in professional sports. Along with the Lightning collecting back-to-back Cup championships, the city's NFL team won the Super Bowl and made history as the first team to ever host a Super Bowl game in which they played earlier this year.

Tampa's MLB team also made an appearance in the World Series last season, though the Rays fell to the Dodgers in that series.
