Tampa Bay Lightning -145

The Tampa Bay Lightning were dominated by the Dallas Stars in the first game which comes to the surprise of most NHL fans, but I still believe they are the better overall team and the favorite in this series. Andrei Vasilevskiy had one of the worst games of his young career as he faced minimal shots and still allowed 4 goals but expect him to rebound as he is a very good goaltender for the Lightning. Tampa Bay was able to get scoring opportunities as they threw 36 shots on an average Khudobin, and given the talent they have in their lineup, I believe they put home a few more shots in this game. Tampa Bay responds with a dominant game and they even the series. Final Score Prediction, Tampa Bay Lightning win 3-1.
