The Tampa Bay Lightning’s long semifinal run against the New York Ranger took a toll on the Lightning’s fitness in the final series against the Colorado Avalanche. This was announced to RBC Sport by three-time Stanley Cup winner and two-time Olympic champion Vyacheslav Fetisov.

“Certainly, in the final series, physical strength was on Colorado’s side. The lengthy semifinal series took a toll on Tampa State. But still, you have to be a high-profile team like Tampa to play in three straight Stanley Cup Finals. All of our guys who fought in the final, well done. Congratulations to Valery Nichushkin, he joined our ranks and became another Stanley Cup owner,” Fetisov said.

Colorado wins the Stanley Cup for the first time in 21 years

The Colorado Avalanche defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 6 of the NHL Finals 2-1 to win the Stanley Cup for the first time since 2001. Colorado won the best-of-four series 4-2.

Tampa has reached the playoff finals for the third straight time, having won the previous two. There are three Russians in the club: goalkeeper Andrey Vasilevsky, defender Mikhail Sergachev and striker Nikita Kucherov.

Russian striker “Colorado” Valery Nichushkin became the 36th Russian player to win the Stanley Cup.
