However, it should be noted that before this victorious series, Toronto met with the upcoming rival (Tampa Bay), where suffered a humiliating defeat with the score of 1:8.

The Lightning gained 110 points in 82 games and advanced to the playoffs from fourth place in the Eastern Conference. On the eve of the first game against Toronto, the Lightning are in excellent form - four wins in the last five games - over Nashville, Florida, Columbus and the Islanders.
Expert Betting Tips
In this pairing, the bookmakers have tipped the scales in favor of Toronto, which we will agree with. The Maple Leafs will be playing on their arena, where they will obviously not be without the support of the audience, plus they will be avenging the recent defeat, which made Sheldon Keefe's wards look like complete laughing stock.
- Tampa Bay has scored more than four goals in each of its last nine games.
- In the last five matches, Tampa Bay has conceded in the first period.
- Toronto has scored in 63 consecutive meetings.
Tampa Bay is a powerful team but they haven't been playing well on the road lately. In their past five away games, the Lightning have suffered three losses, while Toronto has won their previous five home games. All in all, we'll play it safe on the first team not to lose, adding the total with more to spare.
