Analysis and forecast for the third game of the Tampa Bay – Florida series (04/26/2024)

Prediction for the Moscow derby:

Jesús Medina will surprise CSKA. Has Spartak returned or is it the effect of Abaskal’s dismissal?

Tampa Bay finds itself in a difficult situation heading into two home playoff games. The Lightning lose in the series against Florida by 0-2 (2-3, 2-3 overtime). They faced a very uncomfortable opponent, who defends themselves with skill and punishes the slightest slack.

Lightning coach John Cooper has assembled an offensive team that makes the most of the talent of forward Nikita Kucherov, who became the season’s top scorer. The Russian scored 144 points in the regular season and has already added two points to them in the playoffs.

The offensive scheme gave the club 291 goals scored in the regular season and the last fourth place in the Atlantic Division standings. Tampa Bay’s weak defensive performance did not allow it to take the top line: 268 goals conceded.

The preference for offensive hockey became evident already in the first game of the series against Florida. It’s a shame the Panthers quickly figured out the nature of the Lightning’s game and tactics. They started using it.

Express for today:

“Sochi” is awake, “Fakel” is afraid, “Rostov” is lost. Express to RPL

Cleverly containing the blitz, the Panthers took advantage of their opportunities. Although it wasn’t easy. Additionally, the Cats lead the Lightning in defensive interceptions. This allows Florida’s counterattack to right itself quickly and keep Andrei Vasilevsky in constant tension.

There are no complaints about the Rayo goalkeeper. Let’s say more, if it were not for the Russian, the “lightning” would not have reached extra time in the last match. On the other side of the field, Sergei Bobrovsky plays with confidence, defending Florida’s goal. He is reliable, stays focused and instills confidence in defenders.

Florida had a great regular season and took first place in the Atlantic Division. We especially highlight the team’s reliable defense – the Panthers conceded only 200 goals. Defense plays an important role in the NHL playoffs. It has always been like this.

Vladimir Tarasenko entered the decisive period of the season in an excellent manner. The 32-year-old forward, who joined Florida’s squad during the season, opened the scoring in the playoffs, scoring the majority in the final game. He is very useful not only when he is played in attack, but also in defense.

Florida puts an emphasis on defense and denies Tampa Bay the ability to run its crafty offense. At the same time, the Panthers constantly put pressure on the Lightning defense, forcing them to play by their rules. Let’s take into account the stability of the “cats”. All this leads to the victory of Rayo, taking into account the extra time in 1.87.

Prediction and bets for the NHL playoff game Tampa Bay – Florida on April 26, 2024

The duel between Russian goalkeepers in the series so far favors Bobrovsky and we see no compelling reason to change the scenario. The task of containing Kucherov drastically reduces the Lightning’s attacking potential. “Florida” calmly takes advantage of his possibilities. The Panthers took the lead in the series, although both victories were close. We think Tampa Bay needs a new plan and, absent that, the Panthers will win again.

Tender: Florida victory, overtime included, in 1.87.
