The Colorado Avalanche beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 in overtime in Game 4 and are on the brink of winning their first NHL Stanley Cup title since 2001. Nazem Kadri scored in dubious circumstances at 12:02 of extra time to give the Avalanche the win. Tampa Bay felt Colorado had too many men on the ice for the winning goal and their coach Jon Cooper suggested the goal should not have stood. Cooper said, “It’s going to be hard for me to speak. I’ll speak with you. You’re going to see what I mean when you see the winning goal. And my heart breaks for the players. Because we probably still should be playing.”
