Tampa Bay Lightning Team News
The Lightning did not want to go down 3:0 and most probably lose the series so they turned around an uncomfortable position and are back in the game. They still have one game left at home which is a great opportunity to tie the series before going back on the road. If they tie the series, it would really come out of nowhere after they conceded nine goals in New York and were losing 2:0 in game 3.
Tampa´s hero was Ondrej Palat who scored in the final minute of the third period to complete the comeback. The Rangers were cruising and probably relaxed. All of a sudden they are facing the toughest game of the series after a loss which will put them under pressure. Home team definitely has the experience to take advantage of that and take control of the game from the start.

New York Rangers Team News
The final appearance of the New York Rangers in the Stanley Cup Finals was in 2014. If they eliminate the Lightning, they would enter only their second final in the last 28 years. They started off very well but it seems the pressure is getting to them, although they still have at least one more home game coming up and a very efficient attack.
Their offense was stifled on Tampa´s ice and they also lost in a dramatic ending which could affect their morale. There hasn´t been any lack of drama overall in their playoffs journey as they eliminated both the Penguins and the Hurricanes in game 7. The Lightning are different because they won two titles in a row and are known for comebacks in the playoffs so we think the tide is turning after the last game.
