Avalanche Dethrone Lightning to Win 3rd Stanley Cup

The Colorado Avalanche have defeated the two-time defending champion, Tampa Bay Lightning to win the Stanley Cup.

The Avalanche defeated the Lightning 2-1 in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final behind a goal and an assist from Nathan MacKinnon.

Tampa Bay fell two victories short of becoming the NHL’s first three-peat champion since the early 1980s New York Islanders dynasty. Colorado’s core led by MacKinnon, captain Gabriel Landeskog, Mikko Rantanen and longest-tenured player Erik Johnson finally got the job done after years of playoff disappointments.

It’s the franchise’s third championship and first since 2001.

A Stanley Cup Championship parade is expected to take place Thursday, June 30 in Denver and will be carried live on FOX31 News.
