On the NHL Stanley Cup Finals with Mary Lisa:
#1 The Colorado Avalanche are just one game away from hoisting the Stanley Cup taking a 3-1 series lead over the Tampa Bay Lightning as game 5 is coming back to the Ball Center in Denver.
#2 The Aves went up 2-0 and played game 3 on Monday at Tampa Bay the Lightning jumped all over the Aves 6-2 after the Aves won a laugher 7-0 in game 2. The Lightning showed for a moment there they would back on track.
#3 Now with game 5 in Colorado on Friday night the Aves showed they had a lot of advantages having home ice winning the first two games of the series at Ball Arena.
#4 There is no doubt that these two teams can score as they demonstrated in games 2 and 3 but they can both play some good defense as well in game 4 they kept it within a goal for a as the Aves came back to win it 3-2.
#5 Aves goaltender Darcy Kuemper in game 4 was the real difference stopping 37 of 39 Tampa Bay shots for the win.
