With the Dallas Stars resting and watching, Tampa Bay and New York play Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals tonight. The Islanders lived to fight another day after posting a gritty 2-1 win in Game 5 on Tuesday. Tampa Bay has owned 2-0 and 3-1 series leads but New York cut the deficit to one game on both occasions. DraftKings Sportsbook has the Lightning listed as thick chalk for a sixth straight game. As the lone match on the NHL playoff schedule today - game time is 8:00 p.m. ET at Rogers Place Arena in Edmonton.
