Last night the Vegas Golden Knights cruised to a 4-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens in Game 1 for a nice 2 unit win for me. The Habs can’t hang with Vegas playing 5 on 5 and that could end up being a quick series. After a 2-1 loss to the Isles at home in Game 1, tonight the Lightning and Isles play Game 2.
Game 2: Lightning vs. Islanders (8:00)
In Game 1 of this rematch of last year’s Eastern Conference Finals on Sunday, the Islanders got a win on the road to start the series, winning 2-1. The Tampa goal came in the last minute of the game. Semyon Varlamov was the star of the show for the Islanders to get them the win, making 30 saves on 31 shots. Tampa has to win this game tonight to have a chance to win this series. They can’t be going back to Nassau Coliseum for Game 3 down 2-0 in the series. I think the Bolts even up the series at home tonight with a win and I’ll take the ML for a unit and the regulation line for another half unit to cut down on some juice. I also think this game ends up being another goaltending battle that stays under so even though it’s low I’ll take the under for a unit. I looked at the alt line of 5.5 but the under on that is too expensive for me so I’ll roll the dice with the 5. I think there’s value in Tampa to win the series too now that they are down 1-0, but I’m not adding any series bets to what I already have.
