Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Colorado Avalanche Prediction, Tips & Odds – Jun. 21, 2022 02:00 CET
The Stanley Cup Finals are slowly heating up and to make things even more interesting for you, we have an excellent pick for game 3. So far we witnessed two completely different games. In the opener, the Lightning managed to claw their way back and force overtime, but it wasn´t enough as the Avalanche scored a quick game-winner after less than a minute and a half of play. Game 2 was quite extraordinary as Tampa Bay were absolutely annihilated and suffered one of the biggest losses ever in the NHL Finals.

Tampa Bay Lightning Team News
The reigning champions have their backs against the wall after the initial two games. They missed an excellent opportunity in game 1 to steal a win away from home and then suffered a complete meltdown in game 2. It´s not very often we see the defending champions getting routed 7:0. Tampa are known as a comeback team in the playoffs but the thrashing they suffered in game 2 simply has to affect their morale.
The series now shifts to Tampa and the Lightning are hoping the change of scenery can get them going. They have been exceptional at home this postseason losing only once. After the first two games another defeat in their own backyard would seriously harm their morale and the series would be all but over. All in all, one can never write off the Lightning whose team is used to facing adversity. We think they are still not done and will have something to say in this game 3.

Colorado Avalanche Team News
The Avalanche once again proved they have one of the best offenses in the history of the league. Not even the best defensive team in the league and the back-to-back champions could stifle them as the Avs managed to average 5.5 goals in the first two games.
Colorado are now heading to Tampa´s “grindhouse” where a lot of teams in these playoffs thought they could handle the champions. Can the Avs finally end Tampa´s 7-game unbeaten streak at home in the playoffs? If there is a team in the NHL that can take down the Lightning in Amalie Arena at the moment, then it is definitely Colorado.

Tampa Bay Lightning vs Colorado Avalanche Prediction
Despite the Avs dominating so far, it is extremely tough and ungrateful to predict who will come out on top in game 3. We think taking the Total Under after two high-scoring games in Denver is an absolute must. It can´t get any worse for the defending champions who are known for rebounding after tough losses and when it all seems lost. On the other hand, the Avalanche can´t expect to score at the same rate as they did at home. We think the hosts will manage to subdue Colorado´s potent offense and force a balanced game with not more than five goals.
Prediction: Total Under 6.0 goals
