Blue Jackets vs. Lightning NHL Series Betting

Last year the Columbus Blue Jackets stunned the hockey world with one of the biggest upsets in Stanley Cup Playoff history. As massive underdogs and eight seeded against the top seed Tampa Bay Lightning, the Blue Jackets won in a shocking four game series sweep. It was an utter humiliation for the Lighting, one that will never be forgotten. And the only way to make good for it would be to win their upcoming playoff rematch with the Blue Jackets. Tampa Bay is heavily favored once again but now has the battle scars it lacked one year ago.
