The kings of sudden death are now the kings of the American Hockey League.
Patrik Nemeth scored 14:30 into overtime as the Texas Stars captured their first Calder Cup championship with a 4-3 win over the St. John's IceCaps in Game 5 of the Finals at Mile One Centre on Tuesday night.
Nemeth, a second-round draft pick by the Dallas Stars in 2010 who played five playoff games with the parent club also earlier this spring, netted the Cup-clincher off an outstanding individual effort. With the teams skating four-on-four, Nemeth scooped up the puck at his own blue line, raced up the right side, went inside-out on a St. John's defender and backhanded a shot over the glove of Michael Hutchinson for his first goal of the entire postseason.
Texas finished the playoffs with a 6-0 record in overtime, with all six wins coming on the road.
Watch the winning goal below and the post-game ceromony....
