Maple Leafs vs. Lightning: Game 4 prediction
Goal Line: Maple Leafs +1.5 (-235); Lightning -1.5 (+190)
Maple Leafs: +100
Over/Under: Over 6.5 (-110); Under 6.5 (-110)
Toronto took advantage of some undisciplined play from Tampa Bay and grabbed a 3-0 lead early in the second period. Once the Lightning got control of their emotions they got two goals back and only an amazing third period performance by Maple Leafs goalie Jack Campbell (32 saves) kept the Toronto out front. The 5-2 final score is a little misleading because Toronto got two empty net goals in the final two minutes. I believe the Lightning still have some lineup issues that will come back to haunt them, but not Sunday. Steven Stamkos finally gets a goal and the Lightning tie the series.
Pick: Lightning (-120)
