Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Montreal Canadiens Game 5 Odds
It took overtime and four games, but the Montreal Canadiens did finally get a win against the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Stanley Cup Finals. Bow, the question is whether they can turn that win into a momentum shift or if we’re in store for a gentleman’s sweep this year.
We’re going back to Tampa Bay for Game 5. The last time Tampa Bay lost at home was just shy of a month ago, so the Canadiens have their hands full if they’re going to get another win. But, if they can pull off the upset, they come back home trailing by just one for what could be a brand new Stanley Cup Finals series.

Tampa Bay Lightning Preview
If you’re the Lightning, it’s important to not let what happened in Game 4 snowball into anything more than a one-game aberration. Carey Price stood on his head, as he’s been known to do throughout his career, and they stole a game. Now, close it out in Tampa Bay.
The Lightning heavily outshot the Canadiens in Game 4, 34-21, and they had five powerplay opportunities to Montreal’s one, they just couldn’t get the puck in the net. If they play the same game this time around, chances are they’re able to beat Carey Price more than just twice.
Montreal Canadiens Preview
Prior to Game 4, I predicted the Canadiens would come out on fire in front of the, albeit small, crowd in Montreal. And, while they didn’t quite se the world on fire, they got the opening goal of the game and held the Lightning scoreless in the first period.
That was really the main difference in Game 4. Throughout Games 1-3, the Canadiens couldn’t stop the Lightning attack. But, they were able to withstand the high-powered Tampa offense for much of the game and eventually got the game winner in overtime.
The Canadiens aren’t going to win any high-scoring affairs against the Lightning. If they want to win Game 5 they’re going to need a similar plan of attack.
