Tampa Bay - Boston: start of the series
24/08/2020, 00:00 GTM
If you look at the history of face-to-face meetings, you might get the impression that Boston are a convenient opponent for Tampa, but this is not so.
Tampa Bay had a very tough streak against Columbus and won all matches by one goal. Note that in the last fight they had to prove their superiority in overtime (5:4 OT) and the “Lightning” won back from the score 2:4, literally, eight minutes before the end of the third period.
As a rule, in previous meetings before this, the team played in a disciplined defense and did not concede more than two or three goals per game, but this itself did not differ in highly productive actions in attack. We would like to emphasize that Braden Point remains the main sniper in this playoff, who has already completed five goals. Most likely, the Bolts will continue to play with an eye on defense.

"Boston" came to the Stanley Cup not in the best shape, but from match to match it got better and still prevailed in the series over "Carolina" with a score of 4:1. In the past two fights out of three, the team conceded exactly one goal and in the match where they allowed the opponent to score three times, they scored four goals.
Thus, the Bruins are now in good spirits and are on a streak of three wins. It is difficult to single out a specific player in the "Bears", because each hockey player in a particular game can take responsibility. As a rule, Bruce Cassidy's wards also do not concede more than two or three times per match.
We believe that matches between these teams in this series will always be held in a bitter struggle with a minimum number of goals. “Tampa Bay” does not take particular risks in attack, as it was during the season, whereas “Boston” plays exclusively in its own style. However, since in the previous meetings "Lightning" achieved success, we propose to bet on them.
Our forecast - total under 5.5 goals for 1.85 in bookmaker 1xBet.
