The champs answered the bell in Game 5. Facing elimination on Friday, the Lightning pulled out a 3-2 win thanks to Ondrej Palat's goal in the third period.
It was the latest example of Palat's heroics. The Tampa Bay winger became the third player in NHL history to score three go-ahead, game-winning goals with under 10 minutes remaining during a single postseason.
The Avalanche peppered Andrei Vasilevskiy with 37 shots, while Tampa Bay put 29 shots on Darcy Kuemper.
The Avalanche remain one win away from clinching the Stanley Cup title. Their next chance to do it is Sunday's Game 6 in Tampa.
