We are going to get at least one more game in the 2022 Stanley Cup Final thanks in no small part to a resilient Andrei Vasilevskiy. He stopped 35 shots in a back and forth encounter as the Lightning put theAvalanche’s first championship in 21 years on hold for another game at least.
The Ball Arena was completely sold out and the Cup was in the building, however, goals from Rutta, Kucherov & Palat were enough to scrape a 3-2 win. Colorado, as has been the norm dominated the shot count, however as mentioned above Vasilevskiy, was in stunning form.
