Split last night, 1-1 for -0.6 units. Tonight the East and Central series shift to Long Island and Tampa Bay for big Game 3s in those two series!
Game 3: Islanders vs. Bruins (7:30)
After rolling through Game 1 with a win, the Bruins came back from down 3-1 to force overtime in Game 2 before the Casey Cizikas won it for the Isles in OT. I think the Bruins are the better team and end up winning this series, so I’ll take the B’s ML again for a unit tonight to take back home ice with a win on the road on Long Island.
Game 3: Lightning vs. Hurricanes (8:00)
After the Carolina Hurricanes lost game 1 in a close 2-1 game at home, game 2 on Tuesday night felt almost like a must win for them even though it was only a 1-0 series. Vezina finalist Andrei Vasilevskiy was sensational in goal for the Lightning and the Bolts got another 2-1 win to take a 2-0 series lead back to Tampa Bay for Game 3 tonight. Amalie Arena’s going to be rocking tonight and I think Tampa takes a 3-0 series lead at home tonight to make this series pretty much over. I’ll go with two units on the Bolts ML tonight and with the under of the regular season matchups between these teams going 6-2 and both of the first two games in this series staying way under, I’ll jump on under 5.5 tonight for a unit as well.
