They Just Need One

By this time tomorrow night, Game Five of the Stanley Cup Final will be over. We’ll see if this series goes back to Tampa or if the Avalanche wins it all. And it is all I can think about. I will be the most insufferable human being in the world tomorrow because of this. All I can think about is this game.

The Colorado Avalanche have been a feat to face all season. They went 56-19-7 in the regular season, they lost just 26 of their 82 games and now they’re a single game away from the Cup.

A single win. Something they’ve done 56 times in the regular season, 15 times into the postseason, they just need one more. At home, in front of the Avs faithful one more win. I am hopeful, I’m just buzzing with anticipation to see this next one out. They know they can beat the Lightning, the Avalanche have done it twice in the regular season and three times in the post. No matter what the situation, no matter what players are on the ice, they know what to do. They know how to win.

I’ve said time and time again that my philosophy in sports when it comes to wins is they’ve done it before they can do it again. This team has done it plenty of times before. They can do it again. Just one, that’s it. So I’ll leave you with this on the eve of Game Five: they’ve done it before they can do it again.
