There may only be one game left in the 2021-22 NHL season.
Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final between the Avalanche and Lightning is Friday night. Colorado is coming off a controversial Game 4 win: Nazem Kadri’s overtime goal appeared to be preceded by a botched call with Colorado having too many men on the ice. The goal remained, however, and the Avalanche now leads the final 3-1. They have a chance to clinch 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 mark the third Cup win in franchise history.
