NHL Update And Notes

June 18, 2022

Tonight is game 2 of the 2022 NHL final with the home team, Colorado Avalanche seeking a “hold serve” (2-0) series lead vs the two time champion Tampa Bay Lightning. 

The ‘Lanche rode Andre Burakovsky’s overtime goal, scored within 2 minutes of overtime (they had to get the affiliates to the “bleed it leads” local news) to a (4-3) series opener win.

I will have more but for now it is safe to say that a game 1/Cup final overtime win augurs well for the Avalanche, at least historically, as almost every team that won a best of 7 final round opener in overtime prevailed in the series to take the crown.

Andre Burakovsky, pictured above, also had goals 2 and 3 for the eventual champion Washington Capitals in game 7/semis, also vs Tampa Bay (Lightning).

What a great run and it continued this season with at least a final round appearance, this has been for the Lightning!
