Rangers vs Tampa: prediction for the NHL game

The Rangers and the Lightning lock horns in the first game of their semifinal tie in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Who will take the lead? Here's our prediction.

New York Rangers

The Rangers advanced to the semifinals after beating Carolina (6:2) in the seventh game of the series. After winning three home games and losing away three times, New York managed to overcome the Hurricanes in Raleigh. Forward Mika Zibanejad had a fantastic game; he scored the most points by giving three assists. 

Tampa Bay Lightning

Tampa Bay had a difficult series against Toronto in the first playoffs round, but in the quarterfinals they got a unexpectedly easy victory over Florida. The Lightning won four straight games in regulation and were the first team to book a ticket to the semifinals. Tampa looked excellent both on defense and in attack.

Prediction

Tampa travel to New York, where they will play the first semifinal game against the Rangers. The Lightning deliver good results both at home and on their travels. In the quarterfinals, they left no chance to Florida, and now the team is one of the favorites to win the Stanley Cup. The Rangers are a bit inconsistent and almost lost to Carolina in the last eight. We predict a victory for Tampa here.

Both sides have powerful attacking lines and often score large numbers of goals. We don't expect them to sit on defense in the series opener. Take the over. 

Second prediction - total over 5.5 goals
