Tampa Bay Lightning -155

The Tampa Bay Lightning were able to win game 2 on the Dallas Stars mistakes as their high-powered scoring attack was able to score 3 goals in the 1st period, and I think that was just a small display of what they really can do. The Dallas Stars don’t have the best goaltender in this series as Khudobin has had his struggles this season, and Tampa Bay has taken that approach by throwing a ton of shots on goal. Nikita Kucherov and Brayden Point are some special players for the Lightning, but this series could get interesting with the return of Steven Stamkos. Tampa Bay has too much firepower to lose now, and they steal game 3 against the Stars. Final Score Prediction, Tampa Bay Lightning win 4-2.
