STANLEY CUP FINAL
 
DENVER (AP) — Facing the two-time defending champion Tampa Bay Lightning put the Colorado Avalanche at a sizeable experience disadvantage going into the Stanley Cup Final. When the puck dropped, the Avalanche showed they could use their speed to offset Tampa Bay’s players who have been here, done that. And it doesn’t hurt to have a guy who also hoisted the Cup. Andre Burakovsky scored 1:23 into overtime to give Colorado a 4-3 victory in Game 1 on Wednesday night and put the Avs up in a series that’s shaping up to be a classic. Burakovsky is one of only two Colorado players with Stanley Cup rings, and that came in handy. Burakovsky also scored two big goals in Game 7 of the East final against the Lightning in 2018 when he won it all with Washington. Colorado outshot Tampa Bay 38-23. Game two is Saturday.
