NHL betting tips from Bettingpro.com's expert, including the best bets from Tampa Bay Lightning at Columbus Blue Jackets and  New York Islanders at Pittsburgh Penguins.

Tampa Bay Lightning at Columbus Blue Jackets (00:00 BST on Wednesday) - Eastern Conference First Round Game 4


The Columbus Blue Jackets are just a win away from achieving the unthinkable. The wildcards could sweep their top-ranked Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night in Game 4 of their first-round play-off duel in the Eastern Conference. The Blue Jackets took a commanding 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven series after posting a 3-1 victory at Nationwide Arena on Sunday. Matt Duchene and Oliver Bjorkstrand combined for two goals in the second period before Cam Atkinson added an insurance goal with a minute left in the game. Sergei Bobrovsky had 30 saves, including 16 in the final period, as Columbus moved a win away from clinching their first-ever play-off series in franchise history. Tampa Bay’s lone goal came from Ondrej Palat in the third period while Andre Vasilevskiy had 27 saves. The Lightning were without top scorer Nikita Kucherov, who was suspended for a hard hit on Blue Jackets defenceman Markus Nutivaara in Game 2. The reigning Art Ross Trophy holder scored 128 points in the regular season but failed to earn a single point in the first two games of the series. Kucherov and company must do better in Game otherwise their league-record 128 points in the regular season will just go down the drain. We expect Tampa Bay to live another day.

New York Islanders at Pittsburgh Penguins (00:00 BST on Wednesday) - Eastern Conference First Round Game 4


The New York Islanders are just a win away from sweeping their first-round play-off duel against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Barry Trotz’s boys seized 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven series after cruising to a 4-1 win at Pittsburgh on Sunday. Garrett Wilson put the hosts ahead in the first period before Jordan Eberle and Brock Nelson scored just 62 minutes apart to give New York the edge after the first period. The two teams battled to a goalless second period before Leo Komarov and Anders Lee added a goal each for the Islanders in the final 20 minutes. Robin Lehner made 25 saves as the Islanders moved a win away from reaching the second round of the play-offs for just the second time since 1993. They missed the play-offs the past two seasons. Sidney Crosby, Pittsburgh’s top scorer in the regular season with 100 points, has yet to score in the series. We expect the Penguins to avoid a sweep.
