The Colorado Avalanche – with a 3-1 series lead – will have an opportunity to win their first Stanley Cup since 2001, when they host the Tampa Bay Lightning tonight on home ice at 8 p.m. ET. Game 5 will be available on ABC, ESPN+, ESPN Deportes and the ESPN App. In addition, a special alternate presentation of the game – Ice Cast – will give fans a view of the matchup from above the ice and provide added player and team stats.

The two-time-defending Stanley Cup champion Lightning find themselves in a must-win situation, after the Avalanche’s Nazem Kadri – in his Stanley Cup Final debut and coming off an injury – scored in overtime on Wednesday, breaking Tampa’s eight-game postseason home winning streak. The Lightning hope to find the back of the net more successfully against the Avs’ Darcy Kuemper, who stopped 37 Game 4 shots, and became the first goaltender in NHL history with an overtime assist in a Stanley Cup Final game.

ESPN’s NHL-focused studio show, The Point, will be produced from Denver for Game 5, and In The Crease will stream exclusively on ESPN+ immediately following the conclusion of the game.

The commentator and telecast information for each game is detailed below. Commentator assignments and coverage details for the Stanley Cup Final beyond Game 5 – if necessary – will be announced in the coming days. All Stanley Cup Final games will also be available for replay on ESPN+.
