The first two games between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Pittsburgh Penguins have been epic. It’s only going to get better for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals of the 2016 NHL Playoffs. Will the Penguins put Tampa Bay on ice or will the Lightning leave Pittsburgh shocked?
The Penguins will head south and play the next two games in the series on Tampa’s home turf. Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals takes place on May 18 from the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida. The action between these two is getting hotter than some of the players on the ice, so be ready when it all kicks off at 8:00 P.M. EST.
With the series tied at 1-1, momentum is up for grabs with this game. Tampa Bay lit up the scoreboard in Game 1, beating the Penguins 3-1. Pittsburgh shot back but had to fight hard to pull off a 3-2 win in overtime in Game 2, according to Yahoo Sports. However, coach Jon Cooper, 48, is feeling confident.
“I think now that we’ve played them two times, we know a little bit more what to expect,” Cooper added. ”But I know we’ve got more in the tank than what we’ve showed.” Show your love for Tampa Bay by getting an official Lightning t-shirt here.
The Lightning are 6-1 in their last seven home games, according to SB Nation, but are still considered an underdog. Sidney Crosby, 28, nailed the overtime winning goal in Game 2, and that might have knocked him out of his slump. The Penguins are also out-shooting the Bolts, 76-41, making Tampa Bay’s goalie, Andrei Vasilevskiy, 21, work for it. Show some Penguins pride by getting an official Pittsburgh hockey shirt.
“I thought we generated a lot more [in Game 2] and we want to build off of that,” Sidney told ESPN. “We also know they’re going to be pretty fired up to be at home and expect a big push from that.” Will Penguins prove why they’re considered the favorites or will Tampa Bay show that fans should always bet on the underdog?
