Tampa Bay have won five of their eight games against Dallas. Dallas has not lost in four games. "Lightning" prevailed in the meeting before last.
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.
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.
Our prediction is that Tampa will win 2.16 in BC 1xBet.
