Tampa Bay Lightning Team News
Colorado managed to tie game 5 twice but couldn´t answer Tampa´s late third goal which proved to be the game-winner. The defending champions are like a cat with nine lives and will not go away. After everything they have been through and all the adversity they faced so far in the playoffs, another epic comeback would not surprise us.
Even though the Lightning had fewer shots and hits, they still won the pivotal game 5 thanks to their ever-reliable defense. For the first time the Avs failed to score a powerplay goal which ultimately decided the winner. It really does seem the Lightning will now take advantage of home ice and tie the series but at this point we are not sure what to expect anymore.

Colorado Avalanche Team News
There is no doubt the Avalanche are championship material and have been the better team so far but they lack the things that are not visible in the stats – the so-called “intangibles“. Experience and playing under pressure are definitely Tampa´s biggest allies in this series and have kept them alive.
After the initial two games, it is more than obvious Colorado´s scoring has plummeted. The Avs have averaged only 2.3 goals in the last three games compared to their average of 5.5 goals from the opening two games. Despite their offensive production dropping, they did manage to win game 4 but if they continue to play Tampa´s game and score at the same rate, a comeback could truly be on the cards.

Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Colorado Avalanche Prediction
The bookmakers think this game 6 is more or less a 50-50 and we agree but disagree with the total odds. Tampa is slowly figuring things out defensively and kept Colorado´s powerplay unit scoreless in the last game so we will back the Total Under for a very good price.
