There really isn’t a whole lot to say about this afternoon’s game. After a thrilling come from behind win in Nashville, the Avalanche come home looking to get another win and force a Game 7.
What did we hear coming into the series?
Nashville in 4.
Nashville in 5.
Outsiders didn’t give the Avs a chance to get this far - this was the ultimate David vs Goliath series.
Heading into Sunday afternoon’s game, no one should be surprised by anything this Avalanche team does anymore. Colorado is now 2-0 in elimination games this season and will look to use home ice advantage to improve on that record.
After setting an Avalanche franchise record for most saves in a regulation length playoff win, Andrew Hammond is the reason we get to see a game 6. If the Avs want to go any further, he’s likely going to have to do the same today.
We all know what the Hamburglar can do when he gets on a run - maybe Hammond has another crazy hot streak up his sleeve.
Given that they won game 5, we should not expect any lineup changes today.
Gabriel Landeskog - Nathan MacKinnon - Mikko Rantanen
Tyson Jost - Alexander Kerfoot - Sven Andrighetto
Matt Nieto - Carl Soderberg - Blake Comeau
Colin Wilson - J.T. Compher - Gabriel Bourque
Nikita Zadorov - Tyson Barrie
Patrik Nemeth - Mark Barberio
Duncan Siemens - Sam Girard
After serving his one-game suspension, Ryan Hartman is going to be back in the lineup for the Predators tonight. Let’s hope the game off gave him a little perspective so he doesn’t come out running around like the fool he has been in this series - I’m not holding my breath.
Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson
Kevin Fiala - Kyle Turris- Craig Smith
Colton Sissons - Nick Bonino - Austin Watson
Miikka Salomaki - Mike Fisher - Ryan Hartman
Roman Josi - Ryan Ellis
Mattias Ekholm - P.K. Subban
Alexei Emelin - Matt Irwin
Do they force a game 7 or is the end of the miracle run for the Avs
