Lightning vs. Avalanche Game 6 Line Movement

Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Colorado Avalanche Game 6 Prediction

Sunday night, we get game six of this series between the Tampa Bay Lightning against the Colorado Avalanche. This has been everything you want as a hockey fan in this series. We have seen great offense, we have seen great goaltending, and we have seen two physical teams playing hard night in and night out. This has all taken us to a much-anticipated game six of this seven-game set.

The Avs win tonight, and they win the series. If Tampa can win on home ice tonight, then they will force a game seven. We, as gamblers, would not mind a game seven because that means more stuff to gamble on. The Avs, however, would mind a game seven. It looked like the Avs may win the Cup on their home ice in game five, but Tampa took a late lead with under five minutes to play. Tampa stole that game as the Avs outplayed the last forty minutes of the game by a sizeable amount. Good teams do that; however, they go on the road and steal pivotal games.

This is common territory for the Lightning, being two-time defending Stanley Cup champs. If Tampa can win on their home ice tonight, then we will be in for what could be one of the best hockey game sevens in recent memory. 

I am backing the Avs on the moneyline tonight. We have a large series bet on the Avs, and I fully trust them tonight. I think the line is suggesting it is an Avs play as, despite the game five win by Tampa, they once again are dogs on their home ice.

The Avs have been one of the best road teams in all of the NHL this season and especially in the playoffs. I believe that the Avs outplayed Tampa in game five, despite them losing the game, and if they turn in a similar effort tonight, they will be Stanley Cup Champions. This has been a great series so far, but it ends tonight.
