Stanley Cup Finals Game 2 Live Stream, TV for Avalanche vs. Lightning

The Tampa Bay Lightning are down 1-0 to the Colorado Avalanche in the Stanley Cup Final.

But they’re not in a position to win a third championship in a row because they let something like that bother them.

“You have to stay calm even in difficult situations,” defenseman Victor Hedman told reporters. “We’re down a game now, but that’s not going to change our approach.”

The Lightning, experts at making adjustments, are 18-1 after a loss since the start of the 2020 playoffs. They trailed 2-0 in the Eastern Conference finals but won four straight against the New York Rangers to move along.

Who are the X factors for Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final?

Nathan MacKinnon Avalanche Center

He has at least one point in every home game this postseason (14 points in eight games) and can match Claude Lemieux’s 1997 nine-game home playoff point streak. “He’s got the speed, he’s a big guy, so he protects the puck really well and he can beat you in a lot of ways,” Lightning center Anthony Cirelli said. “I think him just being aware when he’s on the ice and as a group just trying to slow him down.”

Lightning goalkeeper Andrei Vasilevskiy

He probably would have liked to win back the first two goals against him in Game 1. In fact, he has lost three of four Game 1s this postseason. But his play is a big reason the Lightning can bounce back from a loss, as he has a 1.57 goals-against average and a .939 next-game save percentage over the past three seasons. “Once he gets a feel for a team and it usually only takes one game, he’s been outstanding,” coach Jon Cooper said.
