Tampa vs Rangers: prediction for the NHL game
Tampa Bay Lightning
The Tampa Bay Lightning started the semifinal series with two losses in New York. In the first game, they lost 2:6; Vasilevsky had an uncharacteristic performance, saving only 82% of the shots he faced. Despite coming closer to victory in the second game, the Lightning lost (2:3). Now that the series has moved to Florida, the Lightning will try to make a comeback.
New York Rangers
The New York Rangers beat the Hurricanes in a thrilling quarterfinal series. They prevailed in four of seven games. In the semifinals, New York celebrated success over Tampa (6:2 and 3:2) in two home games. They were solid on defense and didn't let the opponents score more than two goals. The Rangers have taken a 2-0 lead in the series and will do their best to maintain it.
In 4 head-to-head games out of 6, this bet won.
In 4 head-to-head games out of 6, Tampa Bay scored the first goal.
Tampa returned to their home arena, where they should play with greater confidence. The Lightning have a serious attacking potential, but they were unable to demonstrate it in New York. The team will seek redemption at home and play more aggressively on offense. We predict a win for the hosts.
Our prediction - Tampa to win
We expect the game to be high scoring with multiple attacks from both sides and aggressive attacking play on the part of the hosts. Take the over.
Second wager - total over 5.5 goals
