Game 4 was pure domination by the Rangers, taking a 5-1 win on Friday. Henrik Lundqvist was huge for New York, stopping 38 shots en route to the win. Lundqvist had given up 6 goals in his previous 2 games, but he saved his best for Friday, stopping 38 of the 39 shots Tampa sent his way. Rick Nash and Martin St. Louis scored 3 of the 5 goals in Game 4 after scoring only 2 in the previous 15 games combined. Their resurgence should help the Rangers tremendously moving forward.
As for Tampa Bay, they can take solace in the fact they out-shot New York 39-24 in Game 4. If they continue to have that big a discrepancy in shots on goal, good things are bound to happen. The biggest problem the Lightning face is Ben Bishop has given up 5 goals in back to back games. If they're not able to get Bishop right, they may not have a chance to take control of the series on Sunday.
Head-to-head, the over is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings. The Lightning are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in New York and are 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
