Money Line: -119.00 Tampa Bay (Away)
To be the champ, you gotta beat the champs. The Lightning and Panthers enter the playoffs on win streaks, but the depth and experience that Tampa brings to the table, espeicially with Andrew Vasilevskly in net, is the difference-maker for me. I'll also point out that the Lighting are 7-2 in their last nine playoff road games as a favorite in the -105 to -135 range; lay it and expect a blowout!
T.M. Prediction: 4-2 Tampa.
