Tampa Bay

Tampa Bay has a very cool playoff game and have developed a five-win streak. However, hardly anyone could have expected that the first match of the series with the Islanders would be like this. Let us remind you that Lightning won over their rival with a crushing score of 8:2 and after the starting twenty minutes it was clear that they could not be stopped.

By the way, Braden Point had an outstanding match and scored two goals and three assists. The opponent often broke the rules, whereas John Cooper's wards skillfully took advantage of this three times. In general, the team has now found its balance both in defense and in attack, so it will be difficult for its opponent to adapt to this style of play.

The Islanders are a very diligent team that have tremendous willpower and are certainly not broken by defeat in the first match. Barry Trotz is an incredibly experienced coach who must have words for his players, and he is also capable of choosing a competent game plan.

We would like to emphasize that the Islanders, even in the last matches with Philadelphia, played unstably in defense and conceded four or five goals, although in the final meeting they played to zero. The head coach said that in the first game he had no complaints about the dedication of the players and stated that they simply did not use their chances. Also, Trots is sure that the hockey players will go to the second meeting even more "hungry" and more "angry" in a sporty way.


I would like to believe the words of Barry Trotz that the Islanders will come out to the match even more charged and motivated, but still the leaders of Tampa Bay are in great shape and it will be incredibly difficult to deal with them. In addition, the first match was exemplary and the Lightning realized all their chances at the opponent's goal, while the Islanders did not use their chances.

Based on this, we think that the scenario of the second match will be similar to the first one and therefore we take the victory of the Bolts and the total more.

Our prediction is that Tampa will win for 2.06 in 1xBet.

We also take total over 5 pucks with odds 1.78
