|Over 5 (-136) @ pinnacle|
The set-up: This has been a very defensive series, but after falling 2-1 in double OT last time out, I expect the Lightning to push the pace of Game 6 from start to finish, so as to avoid having to go to a decisive Game 7. The Islanders have been fantastic to this point in slowing down the pace of this series, but after expending so much energy in their Game 5 win, one has to wonder just how much gas is left in the tank for the Islanders?!
The pick: Finally note that Tampa has seen the total go "oer" the number in eight of its last 11 after scoring one or less goals in an OT loss in its previous outing, while the Isles have seen the total eclipse the posted number in seven of their last nine after allowing one or less goals in an OT victory in their last outing. Look for this total to fly "over" sooner, rather than later!
This is a 10* TOTAL COACH'S CONER on the OVER Lightning/Islanders.
