Routine work for the Panthers’ unsung hero.

So, Florida is the NHL champion. Now the Panthers can forget about the embarrassment of trailing 3-0 in the series and celebrate, celebrate, celebrate. Canada is again left without the Stanley Cup, but Russian hockey players continue their streak of winning the trophy: for nine years now, the names of our compatriots have been placed on the main “cup” of world hockey.

Florida is the NHL champion! Bobrovsky played a miraculous game and won the Stanley Cup!

Sergei Bobrovsky’s role in the success is obvious and a lot will be said about it. The Russian goalkeeper could not play consistently during the final series, but in the decisive match he was a real rock: confident, calm, monumental. Bobrovsky was not recognized as MVP (and we warned that this would happen), but for the team he is Sergei the most valuable hockey player.

Vladimir Tarasenko won his second Stanley Cup in a completely different role than five years ago with St. Louis. Then the Russian Tank was the main protagonist of the “bluesmen”, the leader, but now it is just a cog in the “Florida” system. But who knows if the Panthers would have found success without this gear?

Finally, Dmitri Kulikov. One of the most modest and unnoticed Russians in the NHL has come a long way to reach the trophy. The local defender spent most of his career abroad as an outsider (even in Florida, where a few years ago he didn’t even think about claiming the championship), but now he has become the most important part of the defense. of the Panthers. .

The most mysterious Russian of the NHL playoffs. What is the phenomenon of the invisible Kulikov?

The points noted do not refer to Kulikov at all. Although, by the way, Dmitry got his first point in the current playoffs in the sixth game of the final, participating in Alexander Barkov’s goal. And in the first period of the seventh game he was able to score, taking the puck to a great position, but it didn’t work.

Kulikov is a reliable defender. Dmitry’s career could not always live up to this, but now there are no questions for him, and in the main match of his career, Kulikov fulfilled his direct duties so clearly and timely that he became the author of the key salvation of the season.

We are talking about Florida’s winning goal in Game 7. Its author was Sam Rinehart, Edmonton’s goalkeeper Skinner was brilliantly protected by Carter Verage, but everything in this attack started with Kulikov. In the episode preceding the scoring attack, Dmitry magnificently cleared his spot, preventing the Oilers from taking the lead, and threw the puck, thus launching the Panthers’ attack. And he deservedly became the co-author of the main goal of the season.

And now Kulikov is the NHL champion. Plus two dozen other Florida hockey players. They came to this trophy through a long journey of team building, through the disappointment of an unconditional defeat in the 2023 final, through Edmonton’s crazy comeback in the current final. But the Panthers reserved the key and decisive episodes of the season. And the modest Russian defender is the architect of one of those local miracles that became a great victory for Florida.
