Tampa Bay Lightning
The three straight victories that John Cooper's team is coming up against Columbus showed how difficult it would be for all the opponents that Tampa Bay will face in the playoffs. And while Nashville, which lost 2:6 to the Lightning, represents the other conference, Toronto (1:8) and Florida (4:8) could play the Lightning in the conference semifinals.
Tampa Bay is in fifth place in the East, and, so far, they are going into the first round against the New York Rangers.
Columbus Blue Jackets
The Blue Jackets finally managed to win last week's game. Brad Larsen's team beat a powerful Edmonton 5:2 on home ice, scoring four goals in the third period. This win is essential for Columbus, who had given up playing at the end of the regular season and had lost four straight before facing Edmonton.
They are in tenth place in the Eastern Conference standings, having won 36 of their 79 games.
Expert Betting Tips
Columbus and Tampa Bay will play two games in a row as they meet in Ohio in two days. It will be difficult for Columbus to beat Tampa Bay at home and away. The Lightning had phenomenal form before the playoffs, demolishing the East-leading Toronto and Florida, and are likely to do the same against the Blue Jackets.
