Don't Bury Tampa Bay Prematurely
To understand Tampa Bay's chances of winning the final series, remember how they got to this final. John Cooper's team lost to Toronto 1:2 and 2:3 in the first round, but took the two deciding games and won the series. In the conference finals, Tampa Bay lost 0:2 to New York Rangers, but won the next four matches. The series with Colorado was also 0:2 after two games. Now it's 1:2 and Game 4 at Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay.
In the third game the Lightning literally crushed Avalanche 6:2 - Steven Stamkos had a goal+assist, Ondrej Palat had 1+1, including the winning goal, Nikita Kucherov had two assists.
Colorado Cannot Lose
To improve their chances for the final victory, the Avalanche should not repeat the mistakes of the Rangers and take one of the two games in Tampa Bay. Then Colorado would get a comfortable 3:1 and clinch the title, winning only 1 game out of a possible 4. Jared Bednar's wards already missed their first chance, losing game three. Gabriel Landeskog got the brace 2:6, Cale Makar and Mikko Rantanen also had two assists. Unfortunately, Valeri Nichushkin left the ice without a goal. The Russian's puck was canceled due to an offside call. Otherwise, Valeri would have scored for the third time in the final series.
Expert Betting Tips
Tampa Bay cannot afford to lose this game. Otherwise, the outcome of the final series will be a foregone conclusion. The score will be 1:3 and the Lightning will have to take three games in a row for the final victory.
- The score in the series is 2-1 in favor of Colorado.
- In the 2021/22 regular season, Colorado beat Tampa Bay in both games.
- In the final three macthes of the series, the opponents have scored at least six goals on sum.
Likely, the Lightning will get even the confrontation score. Even if Nikita Kucherov, whose participation is still questionable due to injury, doesn't join his squad. Andrei Vasilevskiy, who has yet to shine in this finale, should be a reason for the Lightning's victory. But should we talk about how good the Russian goalie usually is in the decisive moments of a playoff series? Prediction: Tampa Bay will not lose, and the total under 8.5.
