ECF Predictions from Bolts By The Bay Writers
Noah: Lightning in 7
Stephen: Lightning in 6
Henry: Lightning in 6
None of us foresaw the sweep coming against the Florida Panthers, but fear not as a new series means another chance for us to take a swing at who will win and how many games it will go, and if we’re lucky we’ll be able to claim we know something about hockey.
Noah is sticking with the Lightning in 7 for the third time these playoffs on the grounds that Shesterkin will make this a close series. Conversely, I will be joining Henry’s optimistic train of thought and say the Bolts will close out the series before a game 7 at MSG.
This series should not be easy for the Lightning, but on paper this is the least threatening team the Lightning have faced through the first three rounds. But that paper of course means nothing once the puck drops.
