In Game 5, the Tampa Bay Lightning saved their Stanley Cup trophy shot, beat the Colorado Avalanche and reduced their series deficit to 2-3. It will be quite an accomplishment if the Lightning can pull off a comeback series win, as only 31 teams have overcome a 3-1 series deficit (most recently the New York Rangers in this year’s Eastern Conference Finals), but Bolts -Fans are still hopeful – especially since Game 6 will be held in Tampa.

Avalanche vs. Lightning Stanley Cup Finals: Schedule, Record, Predictions
Both the Avalanche and the Lightning had a relatively windy path to the Stanley Cup Finals. The Avalanche, who started the tournament as No. 1, have lost just two games in the entire NHL playoffs this year.
The Lightning, meanwhile, proved their title as two-time reigning Stanley Cup champions. In the second round, the Lightning defeated the No. 1-seeded Panthers 4-0 and beat the New York Rangers in six games.
But the Avalanche have a 2-0 record against the Lightning this season and remain the favorite to take home the Stanley Cup — especially after three wins in their first four games against the Bolts. Of course, the Lightning are in their comfort zone at the Stanley Cup Finals, so it’s still anyone’s cup of tea.
