There may only be one game left in the 2021-22 NHL season.
Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals between Avalanche and Lightning takes place on Friday night. Colorado earns a controversial win in Game 4: Nazem Kadri’s overtime goal appeared to have been preceded by a missed call as Colorado had too many men on the ice. However, the goal stood and now the Avalanche lead the final 3-1. They have a chance to win the series with a home win on Friday.
The Avalanche have not won a Stanley Cup since 2001, when the club defeated the Devils. It would be the third cup win in franchise history.
