TAMPA, FLORIDA – Will Lightning strike twice? After winning a pivotal Game 3 on Monday, the Tampa Bay Lightning are hoping for a repeat performance on Wednesday when they host the Colorado Avalanche in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final.
If Tampa can even the series tonight, goalie Andrei ‘Big Cat’ Vasilevsky will need a big night after recording 37 saves in Game 3. It was a great rebound game for Vasilevsky, who gave up seven goals in Game 2 in a 7-0 defeat in Denver.
The Lightning are currently riding an eight-game home win streak, which is tied for the sixth longest in NHL playoff history.
One of the keys to victory for Tampa Bay tonight will be getting shots on goal. In Game 3, the Lightning had 33 shots on goal compared to Game 2 with only 16 shots on goal.
The game is set for 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
