And then there were two.

The Colorado Avalanche, representing the Western Conference, and the Tampa Bay Lightning, representing the Eastern Conference, are the final two teams standing in the 2021-22 NHL season and will play for the Stanley Cup beginning with game one on Wednesday.

Each team is entering the final series with individual storylines.

For the Lightning, they are trying to become just the sixth team in NHL history to win three straight Stanley Cups. The last team to do so was the New York Islanders between 1980 and 1983.

For the Avalanche, can their superstar lineup take the next step and win hockey’s ultimate prize?

Hockey pundits and fans will spend the next few days making their predictions.

Farms.com will do the same using ag stats and predict the winner using available data from the National Agricultural Statistics Service.
