The 2022 Stanley Cup Final is set to start on Wednesday as the Avalanche meet the Lightning in the final series. All games in the series will be televised by ABC.
Tampa Bay is back in the Stanley Cup Final for the third consecutive season. The club is aiming to become the first team since the Islanders in the early ’80s to complete three championships in a row.
Opposing the reigning champs is Colorado, who has been one of the best teams in hockey the last few seasons — finally getting over that second-round hump that has been their Achilles heel the last four seasons. The Avalanche are looking to raise the third banner in team history, holding wins in 1996 and 2001.
It will be a star-studded series with two of the league’s best defensemen going head-to-head in Cale Makar and Victor Hedman. There also will be dominant offensive weapons like Nathan MacKinnon and Nikita Kucherov, as well as elite goaltending in Andrei Vasilevskiy.
