I'll take the Avs and the Lightning.

Nailed it.

Avs in 6.

Changing my mind. Avs in 5.

Should have stuck to my guns. Cale Makar is going to go down as one of the greatest defensemen in history.

Well, the Lightning wasn't alive for long, the Avs won the 2022 Stanley Cup championship.
Third one ever (1996, 2001, 2022), so now they have as many Stanley Cups as the Denver Broncos do Lombardi Trophies. I know my brother Jeff is happy for them.

Actually, itís the franchiseís 4th championship, if you count the 1977 Avco Cup won by Le Quebec Nordiques.

You canít say that Tampa Bay has bad luck as they won two out of three Consecutive Stanley Cup Finals.

Better than the Bills in the NFL. Four consecutive Super Bowls and no wins.

Now then you mention it I wonder if Corey Perry bring a curse or a jinx? In the 2019-20 season he played with the Dallas Stars who lost against Tampa. The following season he played with the Montreal Canadiens who lost against Tampa. Corey Perry is with Tampa this season...who lost against the Colorado Avalanche!

It can only become a curse if it happens more than once. I'm gonna assume that this is nothing more than a case of a player who is good, but gets snake bit in games when they count the most. Nothing but a jinx for now, but if Perry stays and this happens more than once, it could become a curse that the Lightning may need to call upon their mythological hockey gods to oust straight away.

Perry's a UFA as well for the Bolts, so they might not resign him considering they have to resign Palat. Will have to see how they maneuver between the Draft and free agency next month.

This is kind of wacky:

September 25:  Columbus Blue Jackets @ Pittsburgh Penguins, 1 p.m., then Pittsburgh Penguins @ Columbus Blue Jackets, 7 p.m.

Some kind of split squad?  I can't see the teams finishing the first game by 3:30 then taking the bus to Columbus for another game.

Columbus hasn't had Amtrak service since before I was born.
