Tampa Bay Lightning
The Lightning have lost 3 of their last 5 games and are 35-16 at home with a 65-39 record overall ranking 3rd in the Atlantic Division. The Lightning are 24-10-3 against Western conference rivals. Tampa Bay have a +61 scoring differential, with 296 total goals scored and 235 given up.
Steven Stamkos has scored 43 goals with 65 assists for the Lightning. Corey Perry has 3 goals and 3 assists over the past 10 games.
In their last 10 games the Lightning are 6-4, averaging 2.7 goals, 5.5 assists, 4.8 penalties and 13.1 penalty minutes while giving up 3 goals per game.
Colorado have won 8 of their last 10 games and are 32-18 on the road. They have 71-30 overall record ranking 1st in the Central Division. The Avalanche are 25-10-2 against Eastern conference rivals. Colorado averages 8.8 penalty minutes per game, the ninth-most in the Western Conference and have gone 59-4-4 when scoring three or more goals.
Mikko Rantanen has 36 goals and 56 assists for the Avalanche. Lehkonen has 4 goals and 5 assists over the last 10 games.
In their last 10 games the Avalanche are 8-2, averaging 4.5 goals, 6.3 assists, four penalties and 10.2 penalty minutes while giving up 3.1 goals per game.
Colorado are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games against Tampa Bay.
Colorado are 8-1 SU in their last 9 games on the road.
The total has gone OVER in 7 of Tampa Bay's last 10 games against Colorado.
Tampa Bay are 8-1 SU in their last 9 games at home.
The Bolts are still alive on the series but they need to win other 2 games in a row to win the Stanley Cup which is very complicated with the best team of the league in front. The Avs have won 8 of their last 9 games on the road and haven't lost 2 in a row on the playoffs. They already beat the Lightning in Tampa so I expect them to bounce back and win this game. Take the Avalanche.
