The Lightning won the last two Stanley Cups in 2020 and 2021.

Avalanche defenseman and 2021-2022 Norris Trophy winner Cale Makar was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player throughout the playoffs after scoring 29 points in the postseason.

The Avalanche finish the 2022 NHL playoffs with a record of 9-1 as the visiting team. The team's only loss came against Tampa Bay in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

Their nine road wins set a franchise record for most in a playoff year and finish as the second-highest total in NHL history behind six clubs with 10, most recently coming when the St. Louis Blues won the Stanley Cup in 2019.
