Panthers vs. Lightning Game 1 Prediction

I am not going to ramble too long about this matchup as I have already spoken on my outlook going into game one, but here is what I find to be important. Florida is really talented and has played well all season but we saw some of their flaws shine through in that first round and this team they are facing in this round is probably the most experienced postseason team left on the ice this year.

Both squads have all the talent in the world and I believe that either squad is capable of winning here but as long as the Bolts still have gas left in the tank I believe that championship pedigree shines through In this series.

You just have to win four of seven, nothing more. Vasilevskiy is much stronger between the pipes than Bobrovsky and although I do believe both teams will score plenty in this series, that edge will shine through in the end.

The Bolts are built to go deep and we have seen the resilience and refusal to go home from them already. I cannot go against a team that I know for a fact is capable of finding a way to get the job done tonight.
