Boston Bruins vs Tampa Bay Lightning Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview of the match for the NHL Playoffs Game on Monday August 31st, 2020.

 

Jaroslav Halak Boston Bruins

18 W | 6 L | 0.919 SV%

Halak turned aside 23 shots Saturday during the Bruins' 3-1 loss to the Lightning in Game 4 of their second-round series.

The veteran netminder had little chance on two of the goals, but he had a clean look at Ondrej Palat's eventual game-winner and couldn't get his glove on it.

Halak has now given up 11 goals over his last three starts, all Boston losses, and he'll carry a 2.94 GAA and .900 save percentage this postseason into Monday's Game 5, with his team now facing elimination.

Andrei Vasilevskiy Tampa Bay Lightning

35 W | 4 L | 0.917 SV%

Vasilevskiy made 29 saves Saturday during the Lightning's 3-1 win over the Bruins in Game 4 of their second-round series.

The netminder lost his shutout bid early in the third period, but Vasilevskiy still delivered an outstanding performance to lead the Bolts to the brink of advancing to the conference finals.

After three straight starts in which he gave up at least three goals, the 26-year-old netminder has allowed only one in each of his last two outings, giving him a stellar 1.98 GAA and .927 save percentage this postseason.

Vasilevskiy will look to finish off Boston in Game 5 on Monday.

 

Boston Bruins

The Bruins now have their backs to the wall. Boston hasn't been able to look decent on the show at all. With the victory the Bruins entered the series, it was a struggle for the team to secure the victory.

Now Boston will do their best in this game and should be much more physical in the way they play.

Boston, for its part, only managed a total of 30 shots in the game. The Bruins ended up getting a total of 38 hits in the game.

With the confrontations, the Bruins managed to score a total of 34 victories in the game tie.

Tampa Bay Lightning

Tampa Bay was able to take the seed of the series with the Bruins. The Lightning ended up winning the game Saturday night to take a 3-1 lead in the series.

That being said, the Lightning ended up winning the game by a score of 3-1 and he looked amazing in the way the team played.

Tampa enters the game here with a total of 26 shots in the game. The Lightning only managed to get a total of 45 hits in the game. With Tampa Bay, the team won 18 matchups in the game.
