AP/WVLT Tuesday May 23, 2017

The Nashville Predators advance to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time, beating Anaheim 6-3 in Game 6 of the NHL Western Conference final.

Colton Sissons scored his third goal with 6:00 left, ensuring the Nashville Predators' magical postseason now includes the franchise's first trip to the Stanley Cup Final after eliminating the Anaheim Ducks with a 6-3 win in Game 6 on Monday night.

The Predators, who've never won even a division title in their 19-year history, came in with the fewest points of any team in these playoffs.

Now they've swept the West's No. 1 seed in Chicago, downed St. Louis in six in the second round and then the Pacific Division champ in six games. Peter Laviolette became the fourth coach to take three different teams to the Final, and the first since the playoffs split into conference play in 1994.

The Predators will play either defending champion Pittsburgh or Ottawa for the Stanley Cup. Game 1 is Monday.

Anaheim lost in the conference finals for the second time in three years.

Two Crossville boys are being hailed as heroes after they rescued their 18-month-old sister from a house fire last week. 13-year-old Elyjah Brockway and 11-year-old Donnie Strong were watching television last Tuesday around 6:30 p.m. when flames broke out in their Harrison Avenue Home. They picked up their baby sister and got themselves and the little girl safely outside with seconds to spare. Crossville Fire Chief Mike Turner said the blaze began in a downstairs bedroom when a battery charger caused a short and spread rapidly through the home, which was a complete loss. The kids' mother, Sarah Strong, who was at work at the time of the fire and her boyfriend, Brian Brockway, who was working in the yard, are just grateful that the children are okay. The family lost all their possessions and a GoFundMePage has been set up to help them out. https://www.gofundme.com/strongfamilyhousefund
