Nazem Kadri was a hero Wednesday night with an overtime winner in his first game since June 4, when he suffered an injury in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals. He became the ninth player in NHL history to score an overtime goal on his Stanley Cup Finals debut. Kadri is the first player to accomplish the feat in a match that was not a Series 1 game. He ended the fight with two throws and one hit in 18:42 of ice time.

Colorado has a shot at setting the NHL record for most wins in a single year with one more win. The 1995-96 Detroit Red Wings, 1983-84 Edmonton Oilers, and 1976-77 Montreal Canadiens have 72 wins in the regular season and playoffs. Now Avalanche 71.

Colorado closed a one-goal gap in Game 4 against Tampa Bay to secure the team’s ninth comeback victory in the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Pittsburgh Penguins (2009) set a record for most games played in a single postseason with 10.
