NHL Playoff Picks: Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Boston Bruins

The Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Boston Bruins series has been very exciting and it will all come down to one game to decide who will play for the Stanley Cup.
Time and time again this season, the Bruins have been asked to show their resilience and bounce back from tough times.
Well, here they go again. Just as they had in the Montreal series in the first round of the playoffs, the B's dropped Game 6 on the road and now face a Game 7, on home ice, against the Lightning on Friday night.
They beat the Canadiens, in overtime, in Game 7 of that first round, snapping the franchise's four-game Game 7 losing streak.
Now they have to do it again if they want to advance to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time since 1990. The Canucks are awaiting Friday night's winner.
Friday night marks the sixth Game 7 of this year's playoffs, and the home team has won four of the previous five. The only road team to win? The Lightning, who won in Pittsburgh to advance to the second round.
Tampa Bay is also 3-0 in its history in Game 7s.
If the Bruins are going to win this thing, one would think they have to tighten things up when the teams are playing at even strength and be better when they're not. The Lightning scored three power play goals in Game 6, while the Bruins were 0-for-4 before finally breaking through.
This is going to be one of the best games in the NHL playoffs and has the potential to be one of the best games in history. The edge goes to the home team as the Bruins win big.
