Montreal Canadiens DFS Spin

Carey Price gave up five goals on 27 shots in a 5-1 loss to Tampa Bay in Game 1 of the 2021 Stanley Cup Final. It was not the best of outings for the Montreal netminder who has been sensational in the three previous series. Price is 12-6 in the playoffs with a 2.18 GAA and a .928 save percentage. The Habs need Price to steal a win at the Amelie Arena and doing it Wednesday in Game 2 would get the Canadiens back in the series.

Tampa Bay Lightning DFS Spin

Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 18-of-19 shots as the Tampa Bay Lightning defeated Montreal 5-1 in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final. Vasilevskiy upped his record to 13-6 in the playoffs as he was not too busy in the Tampa Bay net. Vasilevskiy has a 1.94 GAA and a .936 save percentage and has been the NHL's best goalkeeper in the playoffs thus far.

Stanley Cup Final Prediction

The Canadiens are now 0-7 in their last seven meetings with the Lightning in Tampa and are 3-13 in their last 16 meetings versus the Bolts overall. The home team has also cashed in six of the last eight meetings while the favorite is 14-2 in the last 16 meetings between these two teams overall. The Lightning are also 5-1 in their last six Stanley Cup Final games, are 15-6 in their last 21 playoff games when favored and are 49-19 in their last 68 home games.
