‘Lanche/Lehkonen Sweep The Oilers To Advance To The NHL Final

June 7, 2022

Artturi Lehkonen scored an overtime, semi-final series clinching goal for the second straight season, lifting the Colorado Avalanche (6-5) OVER (I’ll say, but after (8-6), two “unders,” then this) the Edmonton Oilers to complete a 4 game sweep, that sends the Avalanche to their first Stanley Cup Final since 2001.

Last year, Lehkonen scored in overtime of game 6, lifting Montreal to a big upset semi-final series win vs Las Vegas. This year his goal sends big series favorite Colorado to the final. 

Tampa Bay (Lightning) beat the Canadiens in the subsequent, 2021 final. Right now, the New York Rangers lead the Lightning two game to one, in their semi-final series. That winner will face the ‘Lanche in the final, beginning who knows when (possible rust factor for Colorado, which will be the series favorite and they also have injuries).

Artturi Lehkonen, pictured above with the Habs (by the way, for a 28th consecutive season, there will be no Canada team Cup crown), scored at 1:39 of overtime last year and 1:19 of it this year to send the Habs and Avs respectively to the final round. 

Below a good note transmitted on, however it ought to read Gordie did so in both the 1938 and 1939 semi-final round.

Lehkonen becomes the second player in NHL history, and first in 83 years, to score an overtime goal to send his club into the championship series more than once in his career. Toronto’s Gordie Drillon accomplished the feat in 1938-39.
