Tampa Bay Lightning Form

Tampa Bay head back out on the road knowing they must snap a three-game losing run or their season is over.

The Lightning failed to build any momentum late in the regular season as they went 4-8 in their final 12 games.

They made a winning start to this series, downing the Maple Leafs 7-3 in Toronto in Game 1, but it has been all downhill since.

Tampa Bay were comfortably beaten 7-2 in the second meeting in Toronto, and then returned home for a couple of overtime defeats.

The Lightning were beaten 4-3 in Game 3 and 5-4 in Game 4, and that means the must now win three straight games to advance.

Toronto Maple Leafs Form

Toronto have taken firm control of the series with three straight wins, and they have now won seven of their last eight games overall.

Unlike Tampa, the Maple Leafs entered the postseason with a head of steam thanks to four-game win streak.

That run was brought to a halt by a surprise 7-3 home defeat in Game 1, but their response has been strong.

Toronto levelled up the series in their second home outing of the series, beating the Lightning 7-2.

The Maple Leafs then travelled to Florida and registered back-to-back overtime wins, beating Tampa 4-3 and 5-4 to take a 3-1 series lead.
