Odds: 2.03

Tampa Bay

At the moment there is a draw in the series (1-1). It is worth considering the fact that the Boston Bruins have not yet lost a single match in regulation time against the Tampa Bay Lightnings in the playoffs.


“Boston” won the opening match of the series with a score of 3:2, but almost gave the victory in the last minutes. In the second fight, they still suffered a defeat, but they themself turned the game into overtime shortly before the final siren and missed in extra time already in the fifth minute.

By the way, even Brad Marchand's double, who was very active in the opponent's zone, did not help the Bruins. The "Bears" allowed the opponent too much at their goal and Yaroslav Galak had to work hard to prevent a large number of goals conceded. Note that the goalkeeper managed to save 36 shots in total.

Tampa Bay

Tampa Bay have earned a very important win for themselves that should inspire them. We emphasize that "Lightning" spend a lot of time in the opponent's zone and make a large number of throws, but they still cannot take advantage of the opponent's penalties. So, in two meetings, the Bolts had six opportunities to realize too much.

For the second time in this playoffs, John Cooper's wards have issued more than three goals per game, because they try to play with an eye to defense and not take risks once again. Note that in ten meetings the team scored 27 goals, but conceded one less goal. The big problem is that Tampa will allow the Bruins to feel comfortable on a nickel in front of Vasilevsky and the goalkeeper has no chance to react to the finishing move.


We think that if Tampa gets things right on its patch and starts cleaning it up in time, then it will have much less problems. The Lightning themselves perfectly take advantage of the Bruins' weak spots and open up the defense with long passes behind the backs of the defenders. Most likely, if the Bolts correct this mistake, they will lead in the series.

Our bet is the victory of Tampa with the Asian handicap (0) for 2.03 in BC 1xBet.
