Online Sports Betting: Lightning Ready To Finish Canadiens
The worst place you can be in a 7-game series is down 3-0. There are a couple of options left to teams that find themselves in this position: they can choose to roll over and die in Game 4, or they can try to find a way to chip away at the deficit. The Montreal Canadiens have decided to go the latter route, and will head to Tampa Bay on Tuesday night for some Game 6 online sports betting action. Could the Canadiens take the opportunity to tie things up at 3?
Tampa Bay vs Montreal: Online Sports Betting Analysis and Game Preview
Date: Tuesday, May 12, 2015
Venue: Amalie Arena
Opening Line: Montreal -150
The Tampa Bay Lightning are paying the penalty for taking their foot off the gas in Game 4. They could have been well rested and sitting back watching the Rangers and Capitals punish each other for 7 games, but instead they are now heading home with pressure on them that simply wasn’t there a few short days ago. The one thing that goes in the favor of the Lightning is their ability to score goals seemingly at will. They were the highest scoring team in the regular season, but they didn’t have to face a guy like Carey Price every night. The penalty kill unit has been solid through the first 5 games, giving up only 1 goal, but the power play unit is going to have to become as good as it was in Game 2 when it went 4 for 8. If the Lightning can in the special teams battle, they should win the series.

Consider This Before Placing Your Bets
It has been fun to see a series that looked dead come back to life, but I think the fun comes to an end on Tuesday night in Tampa. The Lightning are done toying with the Canadiens, and should be more than good enough to deliver the fatal blow on home ice.
