It all comes down to this.

The NHL season began back on October 12, 2021. Now, 246 days later, the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Colorado Avalanche begin their quest for hockey’s ultimate prize: the Stanley Cup.

Can the Lightning three-peat? Or will the Avalanche capture their first Cup since 2001?

As we have for the other playoff rounds, Die By the Blade staffers sat down to make their predictions... and here they are:

Calvin: Avalanche in 6

Hannah: Avalanche in 6 (or, to be contrary. Lightning in 5)

Jeff: Avalanche in 7

Kerra: Avalanche in 7

Melissa: Avalanche in 6

Steven: Tampa Bay in 7
