Columbus Blue Jackets
Columbus had an excellent regular season by its standards. The Red and Blue are now interesting to watch, as they always look to play bright and attacking hockey. Columbus has slowed down at the end of the season, suffering five losses in their last six meetings, but that won't stop them from finishing in tenth place in the Eastern Conference standings.
Tampa Bay Lightning
Tampa Bay didn't have a great regular season, but they do not need to do their best in this part of the season because the Lightning has the playoffs ahead of them. In 16 meetings, they've lost ten times with six wins. They have won six times in their last seven games, moving up to fourth place in the Eastern Conference standings.
Expert Betting Tips
While the Jackets have lost five of their last six meetings, the Lightning has won six of their previous seven games. John Cooper's side is the clear favorite to win the upcoming game, as they've picked up great form ahead of the cup campaign and are currently tearing up everything in their path. As a result, we suggest betting on Tampa Bay's victory with a handicap (-1.5) for 1.95.
In their last seven games, John Cooper's men have scored 40 goals (5.71 average per game). Columbus doesn't have the most reliable defense on the season, as evidenced by the 293 goals conceded in 80 games (3.66 average per game). Therefore, we suggest betting on an individual total of Tampa Bay over 4.5 for 2.5.
Nikita Kucherov spent nearly half the season getting healthy, but he still managed to play 45 games with 66 points (24 goals + 42 assists). He started to show his best hockey in the playoffs, registering five goals and nine assists (3.5 points per game average) in the last four games. In such a situation, we suggest a bet on Nikita Kucherov Total Over 1.5 for 2.20.
