Tampa has won two games in a row against Dallas. "Lightnings" lead in the series with a score of 2:1. The previous two matches out of three between the teams were played with a total of 5.5 less.
Moreover, the previous game turned out to be as unfortunate as possible for the Russians, since Alexander Radulov and Denis Guryanov received minor injuries and did not play to the end. According to the latest information, they are still ready to go on the ice. By the way, because of five conceded goals, even Khudobin was replaced, whereas Ettinger spent the entire third period at the gate, but it is far from the truth that Rick Bowness will dare to release the American from the start of the next match.
We would like to emphasize that “Sheriffs” cannot take advantage of their chances in the majority, which is why they are experiencing serious problems with performance. They also shoot at goal too rarely. For example, in the second and third game segments "Dallas" scored only eight shots.
It is worth saying that Steven Stamkos appeared on the ice in the last match, being recovered from an injury. He spent only five shifts and a total of just under three minutes on the court, but this time was enough for him to distinguish himself with an abandoned puck. John Cooper admired his performance, so it is likely that the hockey player will get even more time in the upcoming game.
Note that the Bolts perfectly take advantage of the vulnerability of the opponent's defense and consistently implement two-on-one or one-on-one outputs. In addition, attackers are constantly improving on the patch, bringing the matter to a throw. We can confidently say that Tampa will continue to play in a similar style.
Our forecast is total under 5.5 goals for 1.78 in bookmaker 1xBet.
We also bet on Dallas's double chance with odds of 1.90
