Lightning vs. Canadiens Game 5 Pick
MONTREAL, QUEBEC (ATS Consultants) – Will the Canadeins avoid elimination once again when they host the Lightning at 7:00PM ET for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Habs are -121 money line favorites over the Lightning, who are +110 money line road underdogs for tonight’s matchup. The over/under currently sits at 5 goals.
Montreal avoided elimination two nights ago when it drubbed Tampa Bay, 6-2 on Thursday. That gave the Habs one more home game, which is big when you're trying to come back from a 3-0 series deficit.
The other positive is that they chased 6-7 netminder Ben Bishop to the bench and now his confidence could be shaky heading into tonight. Max Pacioretty led the Habs with three points, while P.K. Subban and Alex Galchenyuk added two assists apiece.
