Avalanche destroys Lightning 7-0 in Game 2

Game 2 of the 2022 Stanley Cup Final Series of the National Hockey League took place last night between the Colorado Avalanche and the Tampa Bay Lightning.

While we saw a very close game in terms of scoring in Game #1, the exact opposite happened.

In fact, we went from seven goals scored by the two teams combined in game number one (4-3 in overtime for the Avalanche) to seven goals scored by just one of the two teams in game number two.

It’s quite a big contrast.

Here is a summary of the game.

Avalanche destroys Lightning 7-0 and takes the lead in the series 2-0

Although Jared Bednar’s squad basically dominated game number one of the series, nobody expected to see such a massive carnage in game number two.

This Colorado dominance was logically felt in pretty much every stat throughout the game. In terms of shots, the Avalanche led 30 to 16, almost doubling the Lightning’s shot count.

Let’s just say that at just 16 shots against him, it wasn’t the toughest shutout of Darcy Kuemper’s career.

On the other hand, it was quite a difficult game for Andrei Vasilevskiy. It was one of the first times in the playoffs that he seemed to run out of resources and solutions in the face of Avalanche attacks.

It’s the first time in their history that the Lightning have lost Game 2 in the Stanley Cup Finals. Tampa went into yesterday’s loss 4-0.

As for the Avalanche, this isn’t the first time they’ve scored seven or more goals since the start of the playoffs.

Pretty impressive statistic.

Now here are the highlights of the game.

A terrific sequence leads to the first goal of the game.

Tampa needs to watch out for such sales in the future.

And five!

Real Corey Perry.

From the great Cale Makar.

And one more for number 8 of the Avalanche, on the power play this one.

Makar is the first defenseman since Glen Wesley in 1988 to score a power play goal and a shorthanded goal in a Stanley Cup Finals game.

The perfect answer.

The Avalanche won a seventh straight game in the playoffs, which is a franchise record.

It’s going to be really, really interesting to see how the rest of the series unfolds. We recall that Rangers also took a fairly easy 2-0 lead at home against the Lightning before losing the next four games.
