Prediction: Just when you think the Blackhawks are about to go in an 0-1 hole to start the Stanley Cup Finals they rally for 2 goals in the 3rd period in game 1. Surprisingly it wasn’t one of the many Stanley Cup finals veterans they have on the team but rather young 20 year old Teravainen. The Lightning know they let one get away in game 1 and know they must play a full 60 minute game to beat this Blackhawks team. It looked like once they got up 1-0 they stopped attacking and played not to lose. I think they’ll make an adjustment for game 2 and I expect Tyler Johnson to have a good game.  Play: Lightning +230 (Bet365)
