The Cup is in the building. Tampa Bay would like it to keep chilling there for a little while.
The Lightning survived the Avalanche’s 37-shot barrage to force Game 6. Andrei Vasilevskiy brought his record in elimination games to 14-9 with six shutouts. The man is a cockroach with a blocker and paddle.
But there’s a reason the Avs are still a massive favorite to win the series.
