Lightning vs Avalanche Game 1 Preview

Something will have to give as Tampa Bay and Colorado come in rolling into Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals on Wednesday.

Tampa Bay overcame a 2-0 series deficit against the New York Rangers and won four straight to take the Eastern Conference Finals. Colorado rides a five-game winning streak into the Stanley Cup Finals after eliminating the St. Louis Blues and sweeping the Edmonton Oilers.

After a wild Game 1 against the Oilers, the Avalanche took control of the series and held on for the sweep in Game 4. Colorado hasn’t lost in regulation since May 19 against the Blues.

The Lightning meanwhile had to grind out three close wins to overcome a slow start against the Rangers. It took seven games for the Lightning to get past the Toronto Maple Leafs in the quarterfinals, and the Florida Panthers put up a fight despite the Lightning’s second-round sweep.

Tampa Bay came up short in both regular season meetings with the Avalanche. That included a 4-3 shootout loss in October 2021 and a 3-2 loss in February.

Colorado poses a challenge for any teams with two solid starting goalies in Darcy Kuemper and Pavel Francouz. Kuemper won 37 games and posted a 2.54 goals against average this season, and Francouz won 15 games with 2.55 goals allowed per night.

Lightning captain Steve Stamkos leads the team with 106 points on 42 goals and 64 assists. Victor Hedman has also produced big numbers for the Lightning with 85 points on 20 goals and 65 assists.

Andrei Vasilevskiy remains a force in goal for the Lightning. He has 39 wins and a 2.49 goals against average. Brian Elliott also stepped up in goal this season for the Lightning with 11 wins and a 2.43 goals against average.

Mikko Rantanen leads a potent Avalanche attack with 92 points on a 36 goals and 56 assists. Nathan MacKinnon, Nazem Kadri, and Cale Makar all have more than 85 points apiece.
