Montreal takes the lead, Colorado takes the break


The Colorado Avalanches are unstoppable and keep going. After knocking out the St. Louis Blues by the ruthless score of four wins to zero, the Denver-based franchise continues to prove it’s number one in the West Division. After crushing the Golden Knights 7-1 in Game 1 of the showdown, this time the Avalanches had to go all the way to overtime to claim their sixth straight play-off victory. After leading quickly thanks to a goal from Brandon Saad (4th), Las Vegas was able to equalize five minutes later thanks to Alec Martinez (10th), but it was without counting on Tyson Jost (18th) who was able to give the advantage over Colorado two minutes before the end of the first period. The players in the Nevada-based franchise came back motivated and equalized through Reilly Smith (31st) before the end of the period. In the third period, Avalanche goalkeeper Philipp Grubauer was able to show all his class with a series of saves that allowed his team to stay alive during the game. Decisive saves that sent the two teams into overtime, but Mikko Rantanen quickly put an end to this overtime with the decisive goal after three minutes. He continues his momentum by scoring his third goal in three games in a row in the play-offs.
