2022 Stanley Cup Final Colorado Lift The Trophy In Six

2022 Stanley Cup Final Colorado Lift The Trophy In Six

The Colorado Avalanche clinched their third-ever Stanley Cup on the road, with a hard-fought 2-1 win in Tampa last night. This ended a 21 year drought for the Avalanche and prevented Tampa from joining that rare group with 3 or more consecutive wins.

For the First period anyway, it looked like a game seven was on the cards as Tampa held a 1-0 lead. However, they had Andrei Vasilevskiy to thank for that as he pulled off a string of saves. This continued in the second period, however, he could do little to stop the avalanche’s incessant pressure from paying off and once they went 2-1 up they were content to hold on to the puck.

Tampa never looked like getting the equaliser despite a late flurry and in the end Colorado were deserved winners.

A Bit of Over Enthusiasm

There might be a bit of a dent in the Stanley Cup thanks to a bit of over-enthusiastic celebrating. There were a few anxious looks on the player’s faces when it took a tumble.

So there we have it no three-peat but oh so close. For Tampa, the injuries eventually told and of course, they were playing a very good team. Colorado can now look forward to having the holders target on their backs , however if they can hold on to the nucleus of this squad then they should be in with a chance at emulating the Lightning and winning it back to back.
