Looking like the better team by far against the defending champions, the Colorado Avalanche overwhelmed the Tampa Bay Lightning 7-0 in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final, taking a 2-0 lead.

Valeri Nichushkin scored his seventh and eighth goals of the playoffs. And playoff MVP front-runner Cale Makar scored twice in the third period.

Game 3 of the best-of-seven series is Monday night at Amalie Arena in Tampa.
