The Lightning’s woes on the road continued on Tuesday in a 3-0 loss to Detroit. Tampa Bay’s road record was the worst of any playoff team during the regular season. In Games 1 and 3, Tampa Bay was 0-13 on the power play. Tampa Bay opened this series at -200, as the favorite, but is now +125 to advance.

The Chicago Blackhawks visit the Nashville Predators for Game 5. The Blackhawks lead the series 3-1. The line has Chicago +105 and Nashville at -110. The goal total is 5 with the OVER -140.
