Why the Avalanche can win
There’s no shortage of offensive firepower on Colorado’s roster as 16 of the 21 players who have appeared in the playoffs have scored at least one goal. Nine different members of the Avalanche have netted game-winning tallies, and the two that have done so multiple times were midseason additions by Sakic. Artturi Lehkonen, who was acquired from Montreal on March 21, shares the league lead with three game-winners, while Andrew Cogliano, who came over from San Jose on the same day, has notched a pair.
Lehkonen has had a knack for coming up big in the postseason as half of his 12 career playoff goals have been game-winners. The 26-year-old Finnish left wing recorded two during Colorado’s four-game sweep against Edmonton in the Western Conference final and is tied for third on the team with six overall tallies this postseason. Nathan MacKinnon is among the league leaders with 11 goals and has been held without a point in only two of the Avalanche’s 14 playoff contests.
Why the Lightning can win
Tampa Bay has proven it has the depth to compensate for the absence of Brayden Point, who led the NHL with 14 goals each of the last two postseasons. The Lightning have won eight of their 10 games since the 26-year-old center went down with a lower-body injury in Game 7 of their first-round series against Toronto. Captain Steven Stamkos leads the team with nine tallies, including both in its clinching 2-1 win against the New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference final, while Ondrej Palat has netted eight.
The 31-year-old Palat, who has recorded seven points during his four-game streak, scored two game-winning goals versus New York and is Tampa Bay’s all-time leader in the category with 11 as he has recorded at least two in five of his last six postseasons. Nikita Kucherov is tied for fourth in the league with 23 points after leading the NHL each of the last two postseasons with 34 and 32, respectively. The 28-year-old Russian right wing is riding a five-game point streak during which he has registered three goals and five assists.
