Open Post- Game 5 Of The Stanley Cup Final

It's is simple tonight.  A win by the Colorado Avalanche and the on-ice celebration begins.

A win from the Tampa Bay Lightning and we have a game 6 in Tampa on Sunday at 8:00pm ET.


Colorado, one of nine teams in NHL history to average at least 4.50 goals-per-game in a single postseason (min. 10 GP), continues its journey toward dethroning the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions Friday and can claim the third championship in franchise history.

* The Avalanche enter the potential Cup-clinching game sporting a 15-3 record and can join elite company if they oust the Lightning in Game 5. Since 1987 when all rounds became best-of-seven, only one team has finished a postseason with fewer than four losses: the 1988 Oilers, who went 16-2 plus their no-decision in the suspended game during the Final (which was tied 3-3 when called), en route to their fourth championship in five years.

* Should they win the Stanley Cup, the Avalanche will tie the NHL record for most combined wins in one season, including playoffs.
