The Tampa Bay Lightning have opened up a 2-0 lead in the Stanley Cup Final, and are potentially two hours of hockey away from retaining the trophy. They are favorites again tonight, but a bit less so as the Montreal Canadiens return home to Centre Bell on Friday night.

Lightning vs. Canadiens Game 3 betting splits

Lightning (-132): 48% handle, 55% bets
Canadiens (+114): 52% handle, 45% bets

Alex Killorn remains out for the Lightning due to taking a puck off the skate in Game 1, and he’ll be replaced again by Quebec’s own Mattieu Joseph. The Bolts are -1250 to win the series as of now at DraftKings Sportsbook with the Habs as the +800 underdog.
