Check out what The Associated Press’ Pat Graham wrote about the Avalanche being on the verge of a championship.

Cale Makar and the Colorado avalanche weren’t all that interested in taking a look at the simmering controversy over how Game 4 ended in overtime.

What was far more important was to consider this: a chance to clinch the franchise’s first Stanley Cup title since 2001. In front of their home fans as well, where ticket prices soared to over 1,300 $ for an upper level seat.

Friday night in Game 5, Colorado not only has a chance to dethrone two-time defending champion Tampa Bay, but perhaps revive its own dynasty. behind a core of dynamic young players like Makar

“It will be the toughest we’ve had so far,” said Makar, whose side lead 3-1 in the best-of-seven series and is 3-1 in closing games this postseason. “We have to expect them to obviously bring everything they have to us because it’s do or die. We just have to be ready.

The Lightning weren’t happy with how things ended in overtime Wednesday night. Nazem Kadri, with a thumb injury and all, scored the winning point on a shot that slipped under goalkeeper Andrei Vasilevskiy’s right arm.

Tampa Bay’s complaint: The Avalanche seemed to have too many players on the ice.

A day later, Lightning coach Jon Cooper softened his stance.

“It’s unfortunate, but there’s water under the bridge now,” Cooper said. “That should be one hell of a Game 5.”

All Colorado needs is a three-try win — two at home — for its third Stanley Cup title since moving to Denver from Quebec in 1995-96. The Avalanche swept Florida in its inaugural season and captured the No. 2 title in 2001 with a Game 7 win at home against the New Jersey Devils.

At the time, Hall of Fame forward Joe Sakic was leading the charge on the ice.

Now his fingerprints are all over this fast-flying team as GM. He saw five players he picked up just before or during the season combine for five points on Game 4 tying and game-winning goals. Kadri was acquired by Sakic in a deal with Toronto in 2019.

Sakic has assembled this team around playmakers such as Makar, captain Gabriel Landeskog, Mikko Rantanen and Nathan MacKinnon. They’ve been a big reason why this team is 15-3 in these playoffs and about to topple the champions.
