The NHL playoffs can be unpredictable, and if Game 1 of the conference quarterfinals is any indication, then this will not be a disappointing year. The Tampa Bay Lightning look to even their series against the Columbus Blue Jackets as do the Winnipeg Jets when they take on the St. Louis Blues. The New York Islanders hold a 1-0 lead over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Featured Game

Columbus Blue Jackets (+240) vs. Tampa Bay Lightning (-270)

The Columbus Blue Jackets earned a surprising 4-3 victory in Game 1 of this series, taking a 1-0 lead. That was a surprising turn of events as Tampa Bay entered this contest with the best record in the NHL and worth 30 points ahead of Columbus in the standings.

Goaltending Matchup:

Sergei Bobrovsky allowed three goals on 21 shots in the opening matchup. He finished the season 37-14-1 with a 2.58 goals-against average and a .913 save percentage. Bobrovsky is 8-2-0 in his last 10 starts, allowing 16 total goals in that span. In his last 10 starts, he has four shutouts.

Andrei Vasilevskiy will be in goal for Toronto. He allowed four goals on 26 shots in the opening game loss. Vasilevskiy was 39-10-3 this season with a 2.40 goals-against average and a .925 save percentage. He is 7-3-0 in his last 10 starts, allowing 33 goals in that span.

The Columbus Blue Jackets are…

6-0 in their last six games on the road.
8-1 in their last nine games.
1-4 in their last five conference quarterfinals games.

The Tampa Bay Lightning are…

45-13 in their last 58 games.
40-14 in their last 54 games at home.
45-18 in their last 63 games against teams with a winning record.

Stat Pack:

Blue Jackets:
Goals For: 3.12
Goals Against: 2.82
Power-Play: 15.4%
Penalty Killing: 85.0%

Lightning:
Goals For: 3.89
Goals Against: 2.70
Power-Play: 28.2%
Penalty Killing: 85.0%

Prediction

The Game 1 loss cannot be sitting well with the Tampa Bay Lightning coaching staff or players. This makes Game 2 an absolute must win. The problem is that Vasilevskiy has been mediocre of late while Bobrovsky has been outstanding in his last 10 starts. A hot goaltender is a difference maker in a playoff series like this, so look for Columbus to jump out to the 2-0 lead.

Tampa Bay gave Bobrovsky all he could handle in Game 1, but all they could score was three goals against him. Until Vasilevskiy can prove that his performance over the last two weeks is nothing but a fluke the Lightning are in trouble. Look for the Columbus Blue Jackets to win, 4-3.

Two Games to Watch

Pittsburgh Penguins (-132) vs. New York Islanders (+110)

The New York Islanders pulled off a big victory in Game 1, winning in overtime 4-3. Robin Lehner made 41 saves in the game and Josh Bailey scored the game-winning goal a little under five minutes into overtime to give New York the 1-0 lead in the series.

Why Pittsburgh Wins:

Penguins are 11-4 in their last 15 conference quarterfinals games.
Penguins are 5-2 in their last seven games on Friday.

Why New York Wins:

Islanders are 5-1 in their last six games.
Islanders are 5-2 in their last seven games at home.
Home team has won five of the last seven meetings.
Matt Murray has given up four goals in each of his last two starts for Pittsburgh.
Robin Lehner has won six of his last seven starts with two shutouts in that span.

What About the Total?

Go under 5.5, because…

Total has gone under in four of the last five meetings between these two teams in New York.
Lehner has a 1.71 goals-against average over his last seven starts.
Pittsburgh has gone under in 14 of their last 19 games.
Pittsburgh has gone under in seven of their last nine on the road.
New York has gone under in five of their last seven at home.



Louis Blues (-103) vs. Winnipeg Jets (-120)

The St. Louis Blues pulled off the surprising Game 1 victory, 2-1. That came courtesy of Jordan Binnington, who made 21 saves in the victory. Tyler Bozak broke the 1-1 tie with 2:05 left in the game to give the Blues a 1-0 series lead.

Why St. Louis Wins:

Blues are 6-1 in their last seven conference quarterfinals games.
Blues are 25-10 in their last 35 games.
Jets are 2-6 in their last eight games.
Road team is 6-1 in the last seven meetings.
Jordan Binnington has won nine of his last 10 starts, allowing 20 goals in that spam

Why Winnipeg Wins:

Jets are 68-30 in their last 98 home games.
Jets are 4-0 in their last four games on Friday.
Jets are 11-4 in the last 15 meetings between these two teams.
Connor Hellebuyck has allowed two goals in each of his last two starts.

What About the Total?

Go under 5.5, because…

Hellebuyck has a 2.00 goals-against average over his last two starts.
Binnington has a 2.00 goals-against average over his last 10 starts.
Louis has gone under in five of their last seven conference quarterfinals games.
Winnipeg has gone under in five of their last six conference quarterfinals games.
