TAMPA, FLORIDA – In what will be the final game at Amalie Arena this season, the Tampa Bay Lightning will look to send the Stanley Cup Final to Game 7 when they host the Colorado Avalanche tonight in a do-or-die Game 6 for the Lightning.
With Colorado leading series 3-2, the Avs could clinch the Stanley Cup tonight with a win.
The Lightning enter tonight’s game with an 8-2 record at home. Prior to Game 4, the Lightning had won 8-straight playoff games at home.
Lightning Center Brayden Point will not be available tonight.
Point, who suffered a lower-body injury in Game 7 of Round One, was able to play in the first two games of the Stanley Cup Final, but hasn’t returned to the lineup since.
“Our mindset’s just worrying about this game,” said Tampa Bay forward Anthony Cirelli. “Obviously, if we don’t win tonight, there isn’t one (a Game 7).
“Our focus is on tonight and going out there and playing our game plan and being ready to go from the puck drop.”
The game is set for 8 p.m. ET and will be shown on ABC.
