Colorado Avalanche Form


Colorado are threatening to sweep the Stanley Cup Final after taking the first two games of the series.

The Avalanche have been dominant in the playoffs so far, sweeping Nashville and Edmonton either side of a 4-2 series win against St Louis.

That set up this meeting with Tampa Bay and they have already taken a commanding lead.

Colorado continued their perfect Game 1 record as they edged the Lighting 4-3 in overtime in Game 1.

Their Game 2 victory was much more convincing though, as they blew out Tampa 7-0.

The Avalanche stormed to a 3-0 lead in the first period and never looked back as they scored twice in both the second and third periods.

Valeri Nichuskin and Cale Makar each scored two goals in the victory.

Tampa Bay Lightning Form


Tampa Bay return home in desperate need of a win to get back into the Stanley Cup Final series.

The Lightning have battled their way to the final, sandwiching a sweep of Florida with seven-game win over Toronto and six-game victory against New York.

And if they are to now win the Stanley Cup, they will have to go at least six games against Colorado.

Tampa came back from 3-1 down to force overtime in Game 1, but could not find the crucial OT goal as they lost 4-3.

They barely laid a glove on the Avalanche in the second meeting though, crashing to a 7-0 defeat.

So for the second round running they return home trailing 2-0 and in need of a victory.
