The Stanley Cup Final Game 3 takes place from Montreal on Friday night when Andrei Vasilevskiy and the Tampa Bay Lightning return to the Bell Center to face the Montreal Canadiens. The puck falls on NBC just after 8 p.m. ET.

With Tampa Bay winning the first two games, it’s interesting to note that Tampa Bay is now a -1250 favorite to win the Stanley Cup. Montreal has been an underdog in every single series in the playoff run and is even back home on Friday.

July 1st odds

How is Young Cole Caufield doing?

That answer seems obvious as the young player who played at the University of Wisconsin this year has acclimatized well. Although Caufield has been a bit reluctant, he has had two shots in each game and at least 2-3 chances per competition in the Stanley Cup final.

One thing we can say for sure, he’s ready for the Montreal audience again. Almost everyone remembers that.

The speed was largely neutralized by the Lightning. However, there were times when Caufield was able to turn the jets on and get right into the ice.

At the moment, some places are playing it safe and supporting Caufield. That is understandable. This will be a kind of game time decision. It will be something to keep an eye on, but as there are updated numbers it will add data that will be published on social media. The idea is that with just 2.5 shots, an even number looks terribly reasonable.

To be honest, the rookie only plays about 13 minutes a night or so. That’s a pretty smart move by Luke Richardson. Dominque Ducharme would use him about the same and expect Ducharme back that Caufield would be better used on the last line change.

The kids are fine and the expectation is that it wouldn’t surprise anyone if Caufield scores at least one point on Friday night playing with Tyler Toffoli (who loves to shoot the puck and score).

Tips: Caufield over 2.5 shots (+100.)), Caufield 1 point (+105)

Montreal’s Powerplay and Nick Suzuki

The Montreal Canadiens surprised some with their effective power play. It wasn’t the greatest, but again, the key is this. When a team kills penalties so well, it just has to be so good at its own maneuverability to achieve a positive goal difference with special teams.

The Montreal Powerplay works with an efficiency of 20.8%. When you consider that their penalty kill is 92.3%, that adds up to a special team percentage of 113.1%. Only Tampa Bay is better in this regard.

Nick Suzuki was the one who nailed the power play for Montreal. It was a bit of a soft goal, but hey, good things happen when you put the puck in the net.

There is just this feeling that the rookie is not afraid of any situation. It doesn’t matter if it’s a Game 2 in Tampa Bay or elsewhere. As the scene shifts to Montreal, Suzuki should be able to get cheaper matchups. That will make his offensive skills stand out more. That being said, the striker played a much better game 2 compared to Game 1.

Keep in mind that he does this when he is only 21 and the striker is quite resourceful for a center second to face Brayden Point. Let’s see how he fares against Tampa’s bottom six.

Tip: Suzuki over 0.5 points (-118)
