The Colorado Avalanche Are Your 2022 Stanley Cup Champions

A 2-1 win tonight by the Avalanche over the Tampa Bay Lightning gives them a 4-2 series win.

Colorado lead 2-1 after forty minutes and basically shut down the Lightning in the third period.

Tampa did looked gassed in the third period, after playing so much playoff hockey the last three years, you can understand the fatigue the Bolts experienced.

Jack Johnson is a Stanley Cup champion. What a world!

Colorado breaking the mold of the homegrown goalie, too.

Very deserving Champions, although always one of the Wings rival.  They are all hockey players, especially congratulations to Helmer, always one of my favorite Canadian Red Wings.  So there was the interview with Helmer and his family, very touching.

Dorky Fairy AGAIN proving that he is a Cup final curse.  THREE straight years of his teams not winning the Cup when he is in the lineup.

TAMPA (June 27, 2022) – Colorado Avalanche defenseman Cale Makar was named the 2022 Conn Smythe Trophy winner. Awarded to β€œthe most valuable player to his team in the playoffs,” Makar was selected the winner in a vote by a panel of the Professional Hockey Writers Association.

Makar led all defensemen with 29 points in 20 games played during the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs (8-21β€”29), which also led the Stanley Cup-champion Avalanche team in points and was good for third overall among all players in Stanley Cup Playoffs point-scoring.

Makar (23 years, 239 days) became the youngest defenseman in 52 years to win the Conn Smythe Trophy and third overall to do so at age 23 or younger, following Bobby Orr with the 1970 Bruins (22 years, 51 days) and Serge Savard with the 1969 Canadiens (23 years, 102 days).

Makar, 23, claimed the Conn Smythe Trophy five days after receiving his first Norris Trophy. He became the third player in NHL history to win both awards in the same season, following Bobby Orr in 1970 (age 22) and 1972 (age 24) along with Nicklas Lidstrom in 2002 (age 32).

Since the popular opinion has been that Stevie is waiting for the Tampa season to end so he can inquire about Lalonde, I guess the coaching search saga is the thing “insiders” will look at next.

Relentless OhhFense as a former Red Wing coach would say.

In other news, Claude Lemieux is Mo Sieders agent?? Who knew?!

Congrats to Helm. He deserved a second Cup.

Screw the Avs.

I’m glad it over. June 26 is way too late to be watching hockey.

Congrats, Avs.
