Our focus switches to the battle of Florida, where the Florida Panthers travel to the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Today’s confirmed goaltender matchups for our highlighted game:
The Florida Panthers’ Sergei Bobrovsky (36-17-4) vs. The Tampa Bay Lightning’s Andrei Vasilevskiy (30-20-2).

Tampa Bay Lightning Moneyline (-115)

A $10.00 bet would return $18.69.
This Florida team is no joke, and Tampa Bay has already struggled to beat them in this series. But you know who has something to say about that? Andrei Vasilevskiy. 
The Lightning are back on home ice, where they have a 25-11-5 record this season, and that’s where Vasilevskiy shines the brightest in the playoffs. He’s a different beast in Amalie Arena in the playoffs, with a career 33-23 record, 2.34 goals against average and a .920 save percentage.
Florida has proven to struggle as an underdog, with a 0-3 record in its last three games. For these reasons, we’re expecting the Tampa Bay Lightning to get on the board tonight. 

Carter Verhaeghe Over 2.5 Shots on Goal (-150)

A $15.00 bet would return $25.00.
Carter Verhaeghe has cleared this line in two of his last three games, averaging 4.7 shots on 6.7 shot attempts. On the road this season, Verhaeghe has cleared in 54% of all his games, averaging 3.0 shots on 5.7 shot attempts. 
Against the Lightning, Verhaeghe has cleared in four of his last seven games, averaging 3.9 shots on 6.3 shot attempts. The Lightning are allowing 7.5 shots on goal per game to left-wingers so far this playoffs. 
Sam Bennett has been ruled out for the next week with a hand injury he sustained in Game 2. In Verhaeghe’s last 10 games without Bennett in the lineup, he’s reached this number in all 10 games, averaging 3.7 shots on 7.3 shot attempts. 

Last Game Recap:

Dallas Stars Moneyline – LOSS – (-$16.00)
Jonathan Marchessault Over 2.5 Shots on Goal – LOSS – (-$14.30)
Well, the Dallas Stars look toast. Marchessault also looks off the empty net, passes it to Eichel and falls one shot on goal short of our line.
All-Time Record: 12-15 (-$56.14)
