Colorado is one win away from a championship thanks to Nazem Kadri’s overtime goal in Game 4. The victory went to the Avs despite the controversy over how many players they had on the ice prior to Kadri’s tally. 

Back-to-back defending champion Tampa Bay is in danger of falling short of a historic three-peat. The Lightning are now tasked with winning three consecutive games against the Avalanche, two of them in Denver.
