Deryk Engelland accepted the Campbell Bowl, which goes to the Western Conference champion, following Vegas' series win over Winnipeg on Sunday afternoon.

Engelland, who wears an 'A' for the Golden Knights, touched the trophy and brought it back to his teammates before they all headed off the ice. It's always a topic of superstition whether or not to touch the Conference champion trophy because the Stanley Cup is the real prize. Engelland consulted with Marc-Andre Fleury before accepting the hardware.

John Carlson hasn't scored a goal yet during the Eastern Conference Final, but he has had plenty of chances.

"I think we're making a lot of good plays, we're getting a lot of good chances," he said. "Just that one extra guy here and there is a big difference for a goalie. I think we got to bring that extra guy in to possibly be a rebound option, pass option, just make him think a little bit, make him guess a little bit." Carlson has contributed four assists versus the Lightning and he has compiled 15 points in 17 playoff matches.
