With having so much fun doing TikToks for my bets lately I couldn’t neglect my superior writing ability for a moment longer! Tonight the Montreal Canadiens are in Tampa, Florida like a fish out of water at the Amalie Arena for Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Puck drops at 7 PM CT!
The Line: Montreal Canadiens (+173) vs. Tampa Bay Lightning (-193)
Montreal Canadiens were embarrassed in the first game of this series against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Dropping the first game 5-1. Anytime the HABS get worked like they did two nights ago, they return like Will Ferrell in Blades of Glory.
The HABS made easy work of the Las Vegas Knights who have the best goalie in the entire NHL. Meaning I expect a ferocious front line tonight. However, the Tampa Bay Lightning have been here and ran this gauntlet before. The Lightning do look more experienced and in that first game the only mistake they made was surrendering one goal.
We will truly see what both these teams are made of tonight. I expect a better defensive effort for the HABS. As for the Lightning; I don’t feel they will repeat last games performance against a fired up HABS team. I believe we see a 3-2 or a 2-1 final score. I am of the belief Tampa Bay won’t drop this game on their home ice but I’ve been surprised before.
Preston’s Best Bet: UNDER 5.5 GOALS (-162)
