Tampa vs Colorado: prediction for the Stanley Cup game

After two defeats in Denver, the Lightning will host the Avalanche in the third game of the Stanley Cup finals. Can the hosts win on June 21? Here's our prediction.

Tampa Bay Lightning

Tampa Bay started the series at Colorado. The team was close to victory in the first game, but the Avalanche were the first to score in overtime (3:4 OT). But in the second game, the Lightning suffered a devastating defeat (0:7). It was a complete disaster from every perspective, and goalie Vasilevsky gave an uncharacteristic performance - he saved only 76% of the shots. 

Colorado Avalanche

Colorado have not failed to impress with theirpowerful performance in this season's playoffs. They lost only two knockout games and defeated two out of three opponents in four straight games. After looking less confident in the first game of the series, the Avalanche thrashed the Lightning 7:0 on Saturday night. Mikko Rantanen had three assists for the most points.

Prediction

We doubt that Tampa will yield so easily. This is the Lightning's third consecutive final, and they know how to deal with pressure. This will be the team's chance to redeem themselves after their crushing defeat in the previous game. They should be able to win at home. 

Our prediction - Tampa to win

In head-to-head games, the opponents usually play open hockey, so we can expect many goals. In the last battle, the Avalanche showed their attacking potential, but this time the Lighting should not let Colorado's goals stay unanswered. 

Second prediction - total over 5.5 goals
