Colorado Avalanche win first Stanley Cup title since 2001

Avalanche winger Artturi Lehkonen scored the decisive goal in the 1-1 draw just halfway through the second period.

Colorado Avalanche players celebrate after defeating the Tampa Bay Lightning in game six of the Stanley Cup Finals.

The Lightning won the last two Stanley Cups in 2020 and 2021.

Avalanche defenseman and 2021-2022 Norris Trophy winner Cale Makar was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy for MVP in the playoffs after scoring 29 points in the postseason.

The Avalanche finish the 2022 NHL playoffs with a 9-1 record as a away team. The team’s only loss came against Tampa Bay in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

Their nine away wins set a franchise record for most in a playoff year and finish as the second-highest total in NHL history behind six clubs with 10, most recently when the St. Louis Blues won the 2019 Stanley Cup.
