The first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs is complete, and we had five of the eight series go the distance at seven games, with two of those Game 7 matchups going all the way to overtime. That’s the kind of drama you couldn’t script, and this postseason hasn’t disappointed. Will the second round be able to rival the first? We’ll start to find out the answer to that question Tuesday evening.

Under 7 total goals in Florida Panthers vs Tampa Bay Lightning (-120)

With Brayden Point out of the lineup for the Lightning, they don’t have the centre depth to play run-and-gun hockey with an offensive powerhouse like the Florida Panthers, so it’s very likely that we’ll see a game plan similar to what they pulled off against the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 7 of their first round series - play tight and controlled, and wait for a break to strike.

The Panthers play much looser hockey than the Lightning do, but they’ve had their own issues scoring goals in these playoffs, with only 20 over six games against the lowly Washington Capitals. The big issue for the Panthers was not scoring on the powerplay, and the Lightning penalty kill was incredible against the Leafs, more than halving their regular season success rate.

Florida Panthers to defeat Tampa Bay Lightning by 1 goal (+265)

That tight game means tight scores, so let’s double down on that as we pick our winner. The Panthers are the overwhelming favourites in this game, but since we’re looking at likely low-scoring game, we can also assume that the lead will be a small one.

The Panthers are more rested, healthier, and on home ice, but the Lightning are still the Lightning. They can lock it down like few teams in the league.

Colorado Avalanche to score over 4.5 goals vs St. Louis Blues (+150)

Over the last few seasons where the Avalanche have been contenders, the second round has been a big issue for them, but this season I think they finally get over the hump, and do so in style.

In the first round against the Nashville Predators, the Avs scored over five goals per game in a dominating sweep. Expect that level of offense to continue as they try to build off that first round victory, and repeat the performance they had over the Blues in last year’s playoffs.

Nazem Kadri to score anytime vs St. Louis Blues (+195)

With only one goal in the first round of the playoffs, Nazem Kadri has had a bit of a slow start offensively compared to his regular season, but on the plus side, he’s managed to get through a first round series without being suspended, which has honestly become a rarity.

Kadri plays an intense game with his emotions on his sleeve, and he should be right at home against a physical team like the St. Louis Blues. He’s one of the few players between these two teams who scored less than his expected goal total in the first round, and I think he’ll rectify that relatively quickly.
