The 2022 Stanley Cup playoffs roll right along as the Tampa Bay Lightning host the New York Rangers in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final. Much like New York's semifinals series against the Carolina Hurricanes, the home team has been victorious through the first three games of this matchup. After being bested in Games 1 and 2 at Madison Square Garden, the Bolts rebounded when the series moved to Florida and came from behind to win Game 3 3-2. But a win isn't guaranteed, and Tampa's big guns will need to have another big performance if they want to tie this series up and keep their dreams of chasing a third consecutive Stanley Cup alive. 

Puck drop at Amalie Arena in Tampa Bay, Florida is set for 8 p.m. ET. The Lightning are listed as the -175 favorites (risk $175 to win $100) on the 60-minute money line in the latest Rangers vs. Lightning odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the Rangers are the +150 underdogs. The over-under for goals is set at 5.5 (see the latest lines for every game on our NHL odds page).

Before making any Hurricanes vs. Rangers picks, you NEED to see the latest NHL predictions from the SportsLine hockey insider Matt Severance.

Severance is a well-connected writer and handicapper who has worked in the industry since 2005. He's SportsLine's top NHL handicapper, going 131-70-4 in his last 205 NHL picks, returning almost $2,700 for $100 players.   

Severance knows the Lightning found a groove in Game 3 after two disappointing performances in New York. They outshot the Rangers 52-30 and got contributions from their power play, which is impressive given how good New York's penalty kill has been.

But the expert is also aware that Tampa needs to take fewer penalties if they're going to take over this series and punch their ticket to the Cup Final. The Bolts went to the box five times in Game 3 and the Rangers capitalized on two of those opportunities. New York's special teams continues to click, which could be their key to getting their third win on the series.

Now, Severance has set his sights on Rangers vs. Lightning and we can tell you he's leaning Under on the total. He's also found a critical x-factor that has him jumping all over one side of the money line! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any NHL picks of your own.
