DALLAS STARS

The Dallas Stars advanced to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in 20 years with a 3-2 overtime Game 5 victory against the Vegas Golden Knights on Monday. This will mark the third Cup Final appearance for the franchise since relocating to Dallas, having also made it in 1999 (won) and 2000.

Dallas became the fourth team to overcome a deficit in each of its three series-clinching wins to reach the Stanley Cup Final since the four-round playoff format was introduced in 1975. Goaltender Anton Khudobin has been in net for all three of the Stars’ series-clinching wins this postseason.

TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING

The Tampa Bay Lightning reached the Stanley Cup Final for the first time since 2015 following their Eastern Conference Final 2-1 overtime win in Game 6 over the New York Islanders on Thursday. Anthony Cirelli netted his first career playoff overtime goal to propel the Lightning into the Cup Final for the third time in franchise history (2004 [won], 2015, 2020). In the matchup, Victor Hedman scored his ninth goal of the postseason to move into a tie for the third-most goals by a defenseman in a single playoff year.

PREVIEW OF DALLAS-TAMPA BAY 2020 STANLEY CUP FINAL

On Friday, NHL on NBC commentators Emrick, Olczyk, Boucher and McGuire as well as NBC Sports executive producer Sam Flood previewed the 2020 Stanley Cup Final on a media conference call yesterday. Below are highlights:

Emrick on the honor of calling playoff hockey games this year: “To still have the excitement that did not enable me to sleep a lot after that overtime win last night, because it was less than 12 hours ago that I got to see and maybe you share with me what makes me so grateful to be around this sport… I’m honored to be able to watch athletes like this because they’re so committed to a team sport… They came back from 13 different countries and entered training camp again for a second time, and they are doing all of this and putting on this marvelous show.”

Olczyk: “Just being in the building, understanding it is different, but also understanding that when that puck is in play and there is nothing normal for any of us currently, it seems normal to myself, and that is incredible by these athletes and these teams and the dedication and the understanding of what’s going on. It’s been just great to be a part of.”

Boucher on the Stanley Cup Playoffs: “From the players’ standpoint, I think they deserve a lot of credit for what has taken place. Everybody talks about this asterisk, about winning the Stanley Cup this year, and I just can’t understand the logic behind that. I mean, to me, it’s an exclamation mark.”

McGuire on Anton Khudobin: “I think he’s probably been the biggest surprise of any player here in the Western Conference Playoffs, and without him I don’t see how Dallas could be in the Stanley Cup Final.”

Boucher on Andrei Vasilevskiy: “I’ve been really impressed… I just see a much more mature goaltender now that we knew had physical abilities and all the talent in the world starting to put it all together now.”

McGuire on the Edmonton bubble: “It’s not just here in the community. It’s the healthcare professionals. It’s the hotel workers. It’s the people that work in the restaurants. We’ve become like a little family here in the Edmonton bubble.”

Flood on the NHL’s Restart: “We are really excited this Stanley Cup Final is even happening. After all the craziness and madness of this past year, to have the NHL pull this off and create these two bubbles in Toronto and then in Edmonton and have it all work so seamlessly and have these thousands and thousands of tests with no positives is just a tribute to Gary Bettman, Bill Daly and his leadership team for getting us to this point… I’m really proud and thankful for all the people that have committed so much to make this such a special Stanley Cup Final, one that will never be forgotten.”

Stassi Schroeder Addresses Racial Insensitive Actions and Reacts to Bravo Firing on Today’s ‘Tamron Hall’





FORMER ‘VANDERPUMP RULES’ STAR STASSI SCHROEDER ADDRESSES HER RACIALLY INSENSITIVE ACTIONS AND REACTS TO BRAVO FIRING DURING EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW ON TODAY’S ‘TAMRON HALL’

Schroeder Shares Her Thoughts On Cancel Culture And

Responds To Questions About Ever Returning To The Bravo Show

In her first interview following Bravo’s decision to let her go, former “Vanderpump Rules” breakout star Stassi Schroeder joined the Thursday, September 17th edition of “Tamron Hall” for an exclusive interview addressing the repercussions of her racially insensitive actions.

In June 2020, one week after former ‘Vanderpump Rules’ cast member Faith Stowers revealed that Schroeder and her fellow cast member Kristen Doute had falsely reported her to the police for a crime she had nothing to do with, Bravo released a statement that Schroeder and Doute would not be returning to the series. As a result of the firing, Schroeder, who has since announced she is expecting her first child, lost several endorsements and her popular podcast was removed from all platforms.

After being silent since the news broke more than three months ago, Tamron asked Schroder why she decided to finally speak out to which she responded, “Honestly, now because I needed time to process my feelings. I needed time to process what happened. I feel like one of the most frustrating parts when this all went down was that people expected me to just understand everything immediately and things like that take time. And I felt like it would be better for me to get a greater understanding of everything and the issues before I opened my mouth again.”

When asked why Schroeder chooses not to view herself as a victim of cancel culture, she said: “I’m someone who messed up quite a few times. I am the reason why I’m in this situation. I think a lot of people wanted me to focus on cancel culture and whether I was a victim or not, and it’s just not how I feel at all.”

Schroeder also reacted to people on social media labelling her as a racist, saying: “That has been the hardest part of all of this. That is absolutely the hardest part. Just going out to a restaurant or going to the grocery store and wondering if that’s what people think. Throughout this whole thing, I’ve recognized I’ve never felt that I was a racist, I don’t have hate in my heart but I’ve recognized that I wasn’t anti-racist. I wasn’t. And that’s something I’ve been learning throughout all of this.”

When asked if she truly understood how the potential ramifications of her actions could have negatively impacted Stowers’ life, Schroeder said: “I do absolutely understand. I’ve spent the last three months working with a teacher and learning about everything. And there was so much that I didn’t know. I didn’t understand that just because something wasn’t about race for me, doesn’t mean it’s not about race for the other person because I’m bringing my experience as a white privileged woman to this situation and she’s bringing her experience as a Black woman into this situation. And because it’s about race for her, it is about race. And that’s something that I’ve realized.”

Tamron also asked Schroeder about racially insensitive comments she made on her “Straight Up with Stassi,” podcast when addressing the #OscarsSoWhite campaign, to which Schroeder responded: “I’ve been wanting to talk about this podcast more because going through these past few months and working with a teacher and learning about Black history and just the obstacles that Black people face every single day, I look back on the podcast and I am so embarrassed that I even had those thoughts much less put it out there. I was a Karen who basically said ‘What about All Lives Matter?’ Schroeder continued “I have been wanting to talk about this podcast because I now know how to speak for Black Lives Matter…to be able to defend it when people are questioning it.”

Schroeder also addressed her infamous “Nazi Chic” photo caption that was shared on her personal social media account in 2018, and has since been deleted, saying: “I am so embarrassed. I’ve been embarrassed about that for three years. It was a poor joke amongst me and my friends and it was so wrong. And again I have spent my life as a privileged person and it is my fault, I have to say this, that I have not educated myself before. It is absolutely my fault that I didn’t know better, but the issue is I did not know better.”

Later in the interview, Schroeder explained how she plans to move forward and how her perspective has changed, saying “I just want to be a better person. I’m pregnant and I want my daughter to be proud of me. And I want to be a part of the solution, I’ve been a part of the problem for years now. And I’ve recognized that. That’s why I say I don’t feel like I’m a victim of cancel culture. People want me to be mad at it and I’m not, I needed it.”

On how she plans to explain these actions to her future daughter, Schroeder said: “And that’s something that I ask my coach about all of the time, how best to talk to a child about this. Because like I mentioned earlier, when I was learning about everything, I think the weeks that we focused on Black history a light went off in my head. Just learning about everything for a couple weeks straight, all at once, I had never thought about the oppression that Black people face in that way. There was just so much that I didn’t understand, and again, it’s my fault that I didn’t educate myself.”

At the end of the interview, when asked if she’d ever return to “Vanderpump Rules,” Schroeder said: “No, that ship has sailed. And my life feels very different right now, I think when something like this happens and you get pregnant on top of it, you take inventory of your life and you think what is going to be the best for my future child and I think getting drunk and starting conflict and misbehaving on a reality show isn’t my journey anymore.”

Following are highlights for Tamron Hall for the remainder of the week. Please note: lineup is subject to change.

Friday, September 18: Singer/songwriter Melissa Etheridge who is speaking out on the tragic loss of her 21-year-old son, Beckett. Etheridge will discuss his personal struggle to overcome an addiction to opioids and how the performances she has been sharing with fans during the pandemic have been a source of hope, strength and healing for her and her family.
