Tampa Bay Lightning

The First Round of the 2018 NHL postseason went rather well for the Lightning. Tasked with facing the New Jersey Devils, Tampa bay was able to get the job done in 5. So far against the Boston Bruins, things have been going pretty well. Despite suffering a 6-2 loss in Game 1, the Lightning has been able to bounce back rather well. And since they were able to win Games 3 & 4, they enter tonight’s action riding a bit of a win streak. Furthermore, Game 4’s 4-1 Tampa Bay victory proved that the Lightning can beat Boston on the road. Nevertheless, tonight’s online hockey betting odds are siding against Tampa bay on the road.

Players to Watch: Nikita Kucherov (5 G, 5 A, 10 PTS), Ondrej Palat (4 G, 4 A, 8 PTS), and Brayden Point (2 G, 6 A, 8 PTS).

Boston Bruins

Down 2-1 on the series, the Bruins now have the opportunity to prove that they can bounce back from adversity. Although they weren’t necessarily put to the test against the Devils, Boston faced plenty of adversity during the regular season. All in all, the Bruins faced the Lightning four times during the regular season. Out of those four, Tampa Bay only came out on top once. Clearly, Tampa Bay has made some postseason changes.

Players to Watch: David Pastrnak (5 G, 14 A, 19 PTS), Brad Marchand (4 G, 11 A, 15 PTS), and Patrice Bergeron (4 G, 9 A, 13 PTS).
