New York Rangers vs Tampa Bay Lightning Game 5 Prediction

The Lighting knows a thing or two about Stanley Cups as they have won back to back. They will be looking to get to their third straight cup, while the Rangers will be looking to claim their first since the 1990s. The Rangers have been a surprise team all year, but now the world is aware of how good this team is. They have the best goalie in the NHL and have a lot of guys who have really stepped up this season.

The Rangers have been red hot on their home ice, and with a win tonight, they would tie the Penguins for the longest home win streak in playoff history. They have not lost a home game since they lost to the Penguins on home ice in round one. Tampa was able to take care of business on their home ice in Games 3 and 4. The Rangers jumped out to a 2-0 lead in Game 3, but Tampa stormed back and now sets this up to be a best of three-game series. This should be another great game tonight! 

I am backing the Rangers on the money line tonight. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it is my mindset here tonight. New York has been outstanding on their home playing in front of their home crowd. I expect the same exact thing tonight. Igor Shesterkin has played better hockey at home, and I believe we will see him dominant. This one tonight and give them a great chance to win this game tonight. If you are feeling bold, sprinkle the puck line because I do think they can win this one by a couple of goals tonight. Let’s stay hot!
