Unreal way to lose last night as Marc Andre Fleury misplayed the puck with less than two minutes left to give away a free goal to tie it up for Montreal and then the Habs won in overtime. Tonight the Isles and Bolts play Game 4 on Long Island.
Game 4: Islanders vs. Lightning (8:00)
Tampa Bay took back home ice in Game 3 as they grinded out a 2-1 win on the road on Long Island. Vasilevskiy was fantastic in goal again and my futures for the series are back on track. This series has been really close and I think the Isles tie in up at home (which would cash my over 5.5 games bet) tonight. I think they have to win this game, they can’t be down 3-1 going back to Tampa for Game 5 with a chance for the Bolts to win the series. I do still think the Lightning are the better team in the series though so I’m not betting either side of this game. I will take the alternate under 5.5 though for a unit.
