SUNDAY SUPER SEVEN NHL #1
Boston Bruins (48-18-12) at Tampa Bay Lightning (49-23-6)

Tampa Bay took down the Bruins in four of the five meetings in the regular season/round-robin portion of the bubble, so the Lightning and a short price is tempting. On the other side, the Bruins are a veteran team with the next man up mentality after losing David Pastrnak and Tuukka Rask against the Hurricanes in quick succession. With that said, I expect a tight, physical battle in the opener with both teams looking to set the tone early and establish some presence over the other side. I could easily see this one finishing 3-2 or 2-1 for either side, so give me the under as my premium pick for this game.
