The playoffs have been something so far, with a lot of series ending up a lot tighter than we would have predicted. This is one series that was viewed as a coin flip, and it really has lived up to that prediction. The two teams have been playing an extremely aggressive series with a ton of chirping and fighting already having broken out in the previous games. So tonight's pick is going to come from this exciting game four of this hostile series.
The Lightning simply can't afford to lose this game tonight. It's a huge game, they're down 2-1 in the series to the Leaf's, but have a great chance at home to tie it tonight. Game three was unlucky the Lightning were up 2-3 in the third with 3 mins left before the Leaf's tied the game up and sent it into a crazy overtime game. One of Tampa's Brayden Point took a brutal hit against the boards that has him marked as a day to day, and ultimately led to everyone on the Ice to drop their gloves in an all out brawl. Tampa is going to be out for blood tonight, with temperatures boiling on both sides, and a heartbreaking overtime loss. This is Tampa's get back game and their home crowd is going to be absolutely rowdy tonight. There is also the fact that the Leaf's simply can’t and won’t make it out of the first round of playoffs, so with confidence take Tampa's moneyline tonight.
