NBC’s coverage of the 2020-21 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs continues with Sunday’s Game 1 matchup between the Colorado Avalanche and Vegas Golden Knights. Avalanche-Golden Knights stream coverage begins at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. You can watch the game online and on the NBC Sports app by clicking here.
The Avalanche took the regular-season series with a record of 4-3-1. The regular season games were as even as they could get as the Golden Knights outscored the Avalanche 18-17 in the eight matchups. Five of the eight game were decided by one goal.
Due in large part to ending the regular season on a five-game win streak, the Avs won the Presidents’ Trophy for the first time since 2000-01 – the season they won their most recent Cup. Dating back to the regular season, Colorado has won nine straight games and has not lost since May 5th.
The Golden Knights have been led this season by Mark Stone – named the team’s inaugural captain entering this season – and one of their veteran forwards Max Pacioretty. Both Stone and Pacioretty are playing in their seventh different postseason.
