New York Rangers vs. Tampa Bay Lightning Best Bets: Tail These Player Props For Game 5

Well guys we are now heading back to Madison Square Garden this evening as the Tampa Bay Lightning buckled down to defend home ice and even up this Eastern Conference Final at a tally of 2-2. They have forced the best of seven into a now best of three but the battle is not over yet.

The last two games I spoke about the tenacity of this team; they are truly built to go deep and every time they have needed to answer the call they have. You cannot act as though the narrative that they are too tired or unmotivated is valid whatsoever; they are six wins away from a three peat, they can smell it.

They want it.

New York Rangers vs. Tampa Bay Lightning Prediction

I said it last game and want to reiterate it; I was questioning the same things as everyone else was. I wondered what they had left in the tank, if the drive was there, if they could persevere once more. They did it and now they are so close to solidifying their legacy as a truly great one and accomplishing a feat that hasn’t been accomplished in over fifty years.

Tuesday night I said win the game and we’re one game away from a best of three series, mission accomplished. The task is not finished though and winning in the Garden is not an easy task; New York is stellar on home ice and has been dominant there in the postseason, as has Igor. I expect a push from New York tonight and would not be surprised to see them continue their success on home ice but if Tampa can stay out of the penalty box they are just as difficult to beat. I spoke about the shot differential and lack of puck luck they were seeing; they have slowly been rewarded more and more and tend to really dominate the shot differential on the road. Could be 45+ SOG for Tampa tonight especially if they are trailing and I love our odds in that situation always. I’m riding the Bolts till the wheels fall off. 

New York Rangers vs. Tampa Bay Lightning Picks

Last game we hit 1/3 of these props but missed the other two only by the hook; I expect them to have more pucks on net tonight and the leading horses should continue to lead the charge
