Unless Francouz completely melts down (not out of the question) they should take care of the Oilers in 4-5 games, but either Tampa (with Point back and rested) or the Rangers (with Shesterkin, the Kid Line and all the rest) will be a much bigger test.  I'm predicting the Cup stays in the East.

That’s a fair take.

I don’t see the rangers having any chance if they do make it out. Looks like they won’t. Oilers are better than the rangers in all areas except goaltending

Sure, but goaltending is the trump suit.

I’m going to have to go with Tampa for the cup in 6 games.

I would have bet Avs for sure. They are a lot better imo

Vasilevskiy let in two very bad goals and a third was scored on a gift 5-3 (no way that should have been called; I'd even question the initial minor). And Tampa looked a bit sluggish for half the game. Still managed to get to OT. Avs may have the better team but if they continue to get .900 or below goaltending the Bolts just may finish this off in 6.

It may already have. Yikes. I was out of town until late afternoon and then completely forgot about the game. But I'll assume Vasilevskiy did not have his usual bounce back game. 2 bad games in a row from the goalie and no push-back from the rest of the team.

Point is out again, Kucherov is banged up, Paul can barely skate. Knocking Kuemper out of the game feels a lot like when the Senators chased Fleury and then Murray came in and won the series. And for God's sake taking penalties against a PP clicking at 50% is suicide!
