Now Toronto will play the upcoming game at home, where they have a chance to go on the lead again.
Tampa Bay has never taken the upper hand in a series in all four games. The team is currently playing catch-up, but things could change in Game 5.

But in the first home game Tampa Bay" suffers defeat, which led to the fact that it is once again playing in the catch-up. In the fourth game of the series, the Lightning defeated the Maple Leafs 7:3, which results in a tie in the series.
Expert Betting Tips
In our opinion, Toronto will be stronger in the upcoming game. After two away macthes, they will return to Scotiabank Arena, where they have no right to lose, as now the stakes are high. Recall that the last time Toronto won the Stanley Cup was in 1967, the longest losing streak in the NHL.
- Toronto has scored at least five goals in its last five games.
- In the last six matches Tampa Bay conceded in the third period.
- Toronto has scored in 67 straight meetings.
It is worth considering the pattern the teams have shown within the series. First Toronto takes the lead, and then Tampa Bay even the score afterwards. We don't think it will be any different in this matchup. On this basis, we advise to bet on not to lose the first team, adding four goals.
