Seeking incentive for NHL bets

By Andy MacNeil  () 


Let’s check in on three first-round Stanley Cup playoff series that stand 3-2, with Game 6 in all cases scheduled for Wednesday night.

(3) Tampa Bay Lightning vs. (2) Florida Panthers

In his NHL playoff debut, goaltender Spencer Knight came away with the win in Game 5, giving the Panthers new life. They’re still on the ropes, down 3-2, as the series returns to Tampa Bay, though. Winning the next two against the Lightning isn’t impossible, but it is unlikely. Outside of the most recent game, in which the Panthers spent much more time on the man advantage than the Lightning, the teams have had equal time on the power play, and that type of game definitely favors the defending champs. If penalty rates revert to where they were in the first four games, the Panthers are going to need a miracle to stay alive.
