The 2022 Stanley Cup Final is not over yet.
The Avalanche could have clinched the championship in Game 5 on Friday, but the Lightning had other plans. Tampa Bay secured a 3-2 win to force a Game 6 on Sunday.
Ondrej Palat’s goal with 6:22 left in the third period stood as the game-winner. The Tampa Bay winger was left all alone in the slot after taking a pass from Nikita Kucherov and beat Avalanche goalie Darcy Kuemper between the legs.
