The Vegas Golden Knights made it to the Stanley Cup Finals yesterday with a solid 2-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets.

The Jets were a team that just looked like they had ran out of steam throughout the series and couldn’t get by Fleury.

It’s an incredible achievement for the Vegas Knights and they are now just 4 wins away from winning the Stanley Cup.

They might even find out their opponent tonight. The Tampa Bay Lightning go to Washington to take on the Capitals. Tampa won twice here already this series and momentum has been on their side as they won the last 3 games.

Here’s our thoughts:

Lightning vs Capitals game 6 Betting Tips:

Graeme: I don’t know if the Capitals can turn things around. Losing twice in Washington and then again in Tampa. They just look like they can’t make the comeback.

However I can’t back them at the price of 2.05. This really seems like a coin flip of a game and there just isn’t enough value there for me to bet on them.

If I had to bet I’d rather my money is on Tampa at this stage but looking at it I don’t even see any real prop bets I like.

No Bet for me.

Scott: The Caps have lost three in a row and face elimination.  The Lightning have been able to run their “4th” line against Ovechkin and still contribute offensivly.   It’s that depth which has them where they are.

All of the games have hit 6 goals or higher except the last game which hit 5.  With their backs against the wall and the Lightning having a chance to move onto the finals I expect a high scoring game tonight.
