For Colorado to complete the sweep and take home the Cup for the first time since 2001, they first have to defeat Tampa Bay in Game 3 this Monday night (8 PM ET, ABC). And that game’s nearly a coin toss according to the hockey odds at Bovada Sportsbook, which have the Lightning as slight -115 favorites over the Avalanche (-105). The Avs are –575 favorites at press time to win the championship after taking the first two games at home; the Lightning are +400 to come back and claim their third straight title.

Comebacks are nothing new for Tampa. They dropped the first two games of the Eastern Conference Final to the New York Rangers before sweeping the next four games and winning the Prince of Wales Trophy. The Bolts also have the health advantage in this series, with center Nazem Kadri (hand) and LW Andre Burakovsky (undisclosed) both listed as day-to-day for Colorado.
