Tampa Bay was the favorite for the first match of the series with Dallas, but could not confirm this status and scored only one goal, losing in the end with a score of 1:4. Note that in aggregate, "Lightning" scored almost twice as many shots at the opponent's goal, but this did not bring significant results.

John Cooper's wards allowed the “Stars” to come too close to their goal and allowed them to shoot from clean ice, so that Vasilevsky could not even react. The Bolts themselves tried to score from the spot, but they were not particularly lucky on rebounds. We emphasize that in the third period the team even had three chances to excel in the majority, but they did not use any of them.

By the way, the head coach noticed that his team “woke up” only in the final twenty minutes and found their game, but before that they could not do it. He also talked about the timing of the restoration of Stemkos and said that he is unlikely to be able to appear on the ice in the second fight. Without him Tampa's game looks much worse.

Dallas are confidently moving towards their dream and for the second time in this Stanley Cup, they have developed a streak to four wins. Recall that before that, with a difference of one goal in three games in a row, the team dealt with Vegas. Most likely, the "Stars" benefited from a rather long break, during which they managed to more or less fully recover and their superiority in speed was noticeable in the two starting periods.

They took advantage of this and scored three goals, but in the final game segment they scored a goal only in an empty net. Anton Khudobin showed himself excellently again, reflecting 35 shots. Now he is the top contender for the best goalkeeper prize in the playoffs.

Rick Bowness was pleased with the Sheriffs' hockey and noted at the post-match press conference that they "did a lot of things right." Despite not very strong defense, “Dallas”, indeed, blocked often shots, but at the same time always tried to take the game away from their goal. The less the team will allow the rival to “master” in its own zone, the more chances it will have to win the next victory.


It was clear that Tampa adjusted to their opponents in the third period and understood how to act, whereas they simply did not have enough time to recoup. “Lightnings” are masters of analyzing the opponent's actions, so it is likely that the second game will differ significantly from the scenario of the first match. The Sheriffs, however, will give Tampa chances again in attack, whereas they, in turn, will use them and equalize the score in the series.

Our prediction is that Tampa will win 2.16 in BC 1xBet.
