The Avalanche are headed to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in 22 years. And it took just 14 games to get there.

Colorado trailed 3-1 and 4-2 in the third period of Game 4 at Rogers Place before scoring three goals in 5:49 to take a one-goal lead. The Edmonton Oilers fought back to tie it up at 5-5 as Zach Kassian put home a rebound with just 3:22 remaining.

All of that led to the game-winning goal. The goal that clinches the Clarence S. Campbell Bowl for the Avalanche.

And that goal came from Artturi Lehkonen.
