Live to fight another day. The Montreal Canadiens accomplished that much in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday night, thus averting a sweep, which last happened in 1998 when Detroit beat Washington.

Can that momentum carry over into Game 5 in Tampa? It’ll be a tough task for the Canadiens.

Wednesday NHL Betting Lines To Back

Lightning moneyline

No result would shock me for this Game 5, which often are too casually-minded by the home team with a lead in the series. But I don’t think this Tampa Bay Lightning team is the type that will let up that much, in this potential close-out game for the Stanley Cup. When the Cup is in your own building, or so I’ve heard from players, it’s a powerful motivator.

Tampa Bay almost came back to win in Montreal the other night, but couldn’t quite do it. I think they take care of business here and win their second straight championship, at Amalie Arena.

Canadiens at Lightning, Over-Under:

It was a close call for the over-under bettors in Game 4, but when it went to overtime tied 2-2, it was a win regardless of which team scored the next goal. This is a tough game to call on the totals, because both goalies are excellent overall, and usually even better in big games.
