Though Colorado is favored to win the Stanley Cup, they face the daunting task of beating a Lightning squad that is making its third straight appearance in the Stanley Cup Finals.

Nathan McKinnon, who is priced at $1100 to be the first goal scorer of Game One (with similar pricing anticipated throughout the series), said he was glad to be playing Tampa.

“There’s no Cinderella story or anything: Two of the best teams in the league going at it and really excited for this challenge. And it’s going to be very, very difficult, but I believe this group and we all believe in each other. Hopefully we get this done.”

The Avalanche have been considered titans of the West in recent years but fell short of making the Stanley Cup Finals.

And while Tampa Bay has won the cup in the last two seasons, Colorado has two Stanley Cup winners on its roster: Andre Burakovsky with Washington in 2018 and Darren Helm with Detroit in 2008.

Tampa Bay's Brayden Point returned to play Wednesday night after missing 2 Stanley Cup playoff series due to a lower-body injury suffered in the first five minutes of play in Game 7 of the first-round series gainst Toronto.

How significant was his return?

No player has scored more goals (30) than Point has in his last three NHL postseasons appearances.

Point admitted ahead of Wednesday night's game that he might be a little rusty after sitting out for so long.

"Any time you're coming back, you can't replicate the timing and whatnot of playoff hockey in a practice," he said. "It just doesn't happen. It'll be an adjustment for sure. But it's the playoffs. You gotta do everything you can to be a positive addition to your team."

Point earned an assist in his return, an overtime loss.  He also helped Nick Paul tally in the first period.
