NHL Betting : Stanley Cup Game 6 – TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING at CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS (6/15)

HOCKEY — June 15

Stanley Cup Finals – Game 6
TAMPA BAY at CHICAGO

(America’s Bookie Line: Blackhawks -150, Lightning +130, Total 5) — Tampa Bay is a team that may be banged up physically, with Nikita Kucherov taking a big blow when he hit the goal post on Saturday and Ben Bishop hurting from God knows what. It is also being said that Tyler Johnson is playing through an injury. That may or may not be true, but he has scored one goal in his last eight games. Steven Stamkos is scoreless in HIS last eight. It’s not like these guys to go cold, and it’s not like the Lightning didn’t have chances in Game 5, as they had 27 shots on goal in the last two periods. But they have been beaten 2-1 three times. They’re not far from being in a position to beat the Blackhawks (all games here decided by one goal), and they are 8-4 on the road during the post-season. Tampa Bay has not lost three games in a row all season, so this is a team that has been able to rebounds. Indeed, they are 8-2 after a defeat in these playoffs.
