Tampa Bay Lightning -170

The Tampa Bay Lightning have pretty much dominated the New York Islanders outside of one slip up in game 3, and I think they have high hopes of making the Stanley Cup which will keep them focused in finishing the series here. The Lightning have a start goaltender with Andrei Vasilevskiy, and he is playing lights out in the bubble, but their scoring attack is the most impressive as Kucherov, Point, Palat, and Hedman are all capable of point points on the board. New York has been unable to get much generate offense against the Lightning, and with a trip to the Stanley Cup on the line, I think Tampa Bay puts their heart in this game. Final Score Prediction, Tampa Bay Lightning win 3-1.
