Stanley Cup 2015: Blackhawks vs. Lightning Game 2 Odds, Final Score Prediction

June 6th, 2015 by Joe Pantorno Leave a reply »

We're at Game 2 of the 2015 Stanley Cup Final, which already has the feel of the Tampa Bay Lightning preparing to make a last stand. 

While dropping the first game of a series is not dooming, dropping the first two, especially at home, just about is. 

Teams that have won Game 1 have gone on to win the Cup 54 of 69 times. When winning the first two games, they have hoisted the Cup on 41 of 44 occasions.

Needless to say, the Blackhawks will be feeling pretty good if they are able to take the first two games in Tampa Bay.

Puck drop for Game 2 is at 7:15 p.m. ET on Saturday and can be viewed on NBC.


Odds are in Tampa's favor

According to Odds Shark, the Lightning are 4-5 favorites to take Game 2, even though they have not been the strongest home team in the playoffs. In 11 home games this postseason, the Lightning are 5-6 compared to their 7-3 road record.

The last team to lose Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final and go on to win the series was the 2011 Boston Bruins against the Vancouver Canucks.
