The Avalanche will face elimination for the first time this postseason in Game 6 as the Golden Knights look to advance to the Stanley Cup Semifinals. The winner of this series will face the Canadiens in the next round.
Vegas holds a 3-2 series after a dramatic third-period comeback in Game 5 that saw them score twice in three minutes to tie the game at two. Then in overtime, Mark Stone needed only 50 seconds to pot the winner.
The loss was just Colorado’s second at Ball Arena since March 8, with both defeats coming at the hands of the Golden Knights (20-0-2).
“It wasn’t always perfect,” said Vegas head coach Peter DeBoer. “This is a tough place to win. And our guys really dug in and found a way.”
According to the NHL, teams that win a best-of-seven series Game 5 that is tied 2-2 have gone on to advance 79% of the time (215-58). A victory would put the Golden Knights into the NHL’s final four for the third time in their four seasons in the league.
