Colorado vs Tampa Bay: prediction for the Stanley Cup game

The Avalanche and the Lightning lock horns in the fifth game of the final series. Can the hosts win the Stanley Cup tonight? Here's our prediction.

Colorado Avalanche

Colorado got crushed in the first game at Tampa (2:6). The Avalanche made too many mistakes on defense, and goalie Kuemper had an uncharacteristically poor performance, he even was substituted off in the second period after conceding five goals. 

In the second game away, the Avalanche were much more reliable on defense and snatched a victory from the Lightning in overtime (3:2 OT). The winning goal was scored while there were six Colorado players on ice, but it wasn't disallowed. 

Tampa Bay Lightning

Tampalost the first two games of the final series. In the first one, they put up a good fight, but in the second game the team suffered a devastating defeat (0:7). The attacking line gave a poor effort, making only 16 shots on goal. 

At home, Tampa secured a confident 6:2 victory, almost every player of the first line earned points in that game. The Lightning couldn't level the score in the series and lost the second home game in overtime.

Prediction

In this year's playoffs, Colorado have looked the strongest. Now they are only one step away from winning the trophy, and they are at home, where they have always performed at their best. Two times, Tampa came close to victory, but lost to the Avalanche in overtime. Now they have no room for error, and they surely will put up a fight. But we believe the hosts have the edge tonight.

Given that the upcoming game may be the last one, both sides will play very carefully, especially Tampa. But the Lightning don't always succeed in holding off the Avalanche, and head-to-head games are often high-scoring affairs. Take the over. 

Second prediction - total over 5.5 goals
