Tampa Bay Lightning -145

The Tampa Bay Lightning were unable to continue their hot streak and essentially go undefeated in the Eastern Conference Finals, but they are still the clear-cut favorite to win this series. The Lightning have one of the better goaltenders still remaining in the postseason as Vasilevskiy is allowing just shy of 2 goals per game, and I expect him to get back on track here with a much better game. The Lightning have a very dangerous lineup as every line has produced points this season, but I think the biggest difference here will be their attention to detail on the defensive side of the ice. Final Score Prediction, Tampa Bay Lightning win 3-1.
