Colorado Avalanche Form

Colorado hold a 2-1 lead in the Stanley Cup Final series after losing their first road game of the series.

The Avalanche dominated the opposition on their way to the Final, recording two sweeps as they went 12-2 to down Nashville, St Louis and Edmonton.

They threatened to steamroller Tampa Bay when they won the first two games of this series.

Colorado opened with a 4-3 overtime win over the Lightning in Game 1.

They then took a 2-0 lead in the series with an emphatic 7-0 victory in their second home game.

However, there will be no sweep here after the Avalanche fell to a 6-2 defeat in Game 3 in Tampa.

They conceded all six goals in the first two periods and starting goalie Darcy Kuemper was pulled after the fifth goal.

Pavel Francouz took his place and made nine saves on 10 shots, leaving coach Jared Bednar with a decision to make for Game 4.

Tampa Bay Lightning Form

Tampa Bay hauled themselves right back into the Stanley Cup Final series with a big Game 3 victory.

The Lightning did not have an easy run to the Final as they went seven games with Toronto and six with the New York Rangers.

Against the Rangers they had to come back 2-0 down to win the series, and they will have to repeat that feat if they want to lift the Stanley Cup.

Tampa fought back from 3-1 down but lost 4-3 in overtime in Game 1 in Colorado.

Their Game 2 defeat proved to be much more convincing as they were smashed 7-0, leaving them in desperate need of a win on Monday night.

The good news for the Lightning was that they were returning home for what felt like a ‘must-win’ clash.

They made home advantage count, storming to a 6-2 victory that has reignited the Stanley Cup Final.

Tampa fell behind early, but hit back and went on to rattle in four goals in the second period to run away with it.
