The avalanche starts from a Dramatic 3-2 win in overtime in Tampa, giving them a 3-1 lead. Colorado goalkeeper Darcy Quimper got off to a shaky start in the third game and stopped 37 of 39 lightning shots, Nazim Qadri came back from injury and scored the winning goal in overtime. Now, the Avs have a chance to win the Stanley Cup for the first time since 2001.

Tampa Bay’s winning streak is one loss away from its end. In order to keep their season alive, Lightning will have to do something that only one other team has done this season – beat an avalanche at home.
