Oddsmakers from online sports book Bodog.com have made the host Bruins a -155 favorite for Monday's Game 5, while the Lightning are listed as a +145 underdog on the moneyline. The over-under is set at 5.5 goals and action is slated to begin at 8:05PM EST.

A 3-0 advantage in Game 4 was not enough for Boston to hold on as Tampa Bay excited its home fans with a furious comeback, scoring three goals in the second period and another two in the third including an empty netter in the final minute to clinch it. Teddy Purcell scored the first two Lightning goals, while Sean Bergenheim tied it before Simon Gagne gave Tampa Bay its first lead in the third period.

After a rough first period by Dwayne Roloson, Tampa Bay pulled its starting goaltender in favor of Mike Smith who saved the remaining 21 Bruins shots in the contest.

According to the latest NHL trends, Boston is 10-6 against the spread versus Tampa Bay over the last three seasons. Nine of 15 games in this series have gone over the total during the last three seasons.
