The Tampa Bay Lightning and Montreal Canadiens clash from Tampa Bay in Game 5 on Wednesday night. This game expects to feature a ton of Nikita Kucherov, who was visibly angry after Tampa Bay’s Game 4 loss in overtime on Monday night in Montreal.

This player prop is intriguing in the sense that Kucherov will get his chances, as he’s attempted 10 shots over the past two games. However, can he get two points? Kucherov has multiple points twice in the series so far, so he’s certainly capable of doing it again tonight.

Lightning To Win Game 5 In Regulation (-145)

Tampa Bay comes in at -145 on Wednesday night against Montreal in regulation, which is much more favorable than the -250 moneyline. Given that the Lightning have won both games in this series at home rather easily (and in regulation), -145 looks like a reasonable number.

Narrow Game 4 loss aside, Tampa Bay has clearly been the superior team throughout this series (+8 goal differential) and came extremely close to pulling off a sweep. Accordingly, we’re going with the Lightning to close this series out and win Game 5 in regulation. The moneyline (-250) may be the safer pick, but that number is just too high to profit much on it.
