One of the best tournaments in sports is skating towards the finish line as we head into game 6 of the 2022 NHL Stanley Cup Finals.

Game 5 saw the Tampa Bay Lightning hold onto their chance at the Stanley Cup trophy, beating the Colorado Avalanche and narrowing their series deficit to 2-3. It’ll be quite a feat if the Lightning can pull off a comeback series win, as only 31 teams have overcome a 3-1 series deficit (most recently, the New York Rangers in this year’s Eastern Conference Finals), but Bolts fans are still hopeful — especially as Game 6 will take place in Tampa.

If you’re looking to catch all the action live, read on: Below is everything you need to know about the 2022 NHL Finals, including how to watch games on TV, where to stream Avalanche vs. Lightning game 6 online, and even a few ways to watch the Avalanche vs. Lightning Stanley Cup Finals for free online.

Avalanche vs. Lightning Stanley Cup Finals: Schedule, Record, Predictions

Both the Avalanche and the Lightning had a relatively breezy road to the Stanley Cup Finals. The Avalanche, who entered the tournament as a No. 1 seed, have lost just two games in the whole NHL Playoffs this year.

The Lightning, meantime, proved their title as the two-time reigning Stanley Cup champions. In the second round, the Lightning swept the No. 1-seeded Panthers in a 4-0 upset victory, and went on to beat the New York Rangers in six games.

But the Avalanche has a 2-0 regular-season record against the Lightning this season, and remain the favorite to take home the Stanley Cup — especially after grabbing three wins in the first four games against the Bolts. Of course, the Lightning are in their comfort zone at the Stanley Cup Finals, so it’s still anyone’s game.

Below is a full schedule for the Avalanche vs. Lightning Stanley Cup Finals Series:

Game 1: Wednesday, June 15 at 8 p.m. ET in Denver

Game 2: Saturday, June 18 at 8 p.m. ET in Denver
