When a team is down 0-3 in a best-of-seven series, it’s time for the one-game-at-a-time, now-or-never and the pressure is on them stories produced. They’re cliché, but they fit the situation.
So when the Tampa Bay Lightning square off against the Montreal Canadiens for Game 4, you’ll see and hear plenty of stats and odds that will help predict the result of the game, too. It seems like those stats can be thrown out the window because you never know which stat will suit the game in question.
