The NHL's Stanley Cup Final matchup is now set

The Colorado Avalanche are in the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in 21 years.

DENVER — Bring on the champs.

After a long wait, the Colorado Avalanche finally know their opponent for the 2022 Stanley Cup Finals — and it will be their toughest matchup yet.

The two-time defending champion Tampa Bay Lightning stand between Colorado and its first Stanley Cup since 2001. The Lightning won Game Six of the Eastern Conference Finals on Saturday night to eliminate the New York Rangers and advance.

The best-of-seven series begins Wednesday, with the first two games at Ball Arena thanks to Colorado's home-ice advantage.
