Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Russian star celebrates in style after Stanley Cup glory”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Russian winger Valeri Nichushkin is a Stanley Cup champion after helping the Colorado Avalanche finish the job in Game 6 of their series against two-time defending champion the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Avalanche earned a 2-1 victory at Tampa’s Amalie Arena home on Sunday night, clinching a first Stanley Cup since 2001 and a third title in team history.  

Winger Artturi Lehkonen scored the game-winning goal for the Avs just after the halfway mark of the second period.

Seeking a historic ‘threepeat’ of titles, Tampa Bay had taken the lead less than four minutes into the game through captain Steven Stamkos.

But star Avalanche center Nathan MacKinnon tied the score at 1:54 of the second period, before Lehkonen pushed the Avs in front for a lead which they did not relinquish to seal the series 4-2.
