The Lightning scored nearly 300 goals this season, one of the best offensive campaigns in recent years. Nikita Kucherov and Steven Stamkos are two of the main perpetrators of this scoring onslaught, but they have opened things up for their teammates as well.

In between the pipes for Tampa Bay is goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy, who has 44 wins, a .920 save percentage and eight shutouts for the season. They had no problem imposing their will on the New Jersey Devils. The Boston Bruins should not be a problem either.

You want to talk about a team that has it all? Just look at the Boston Bruins. Not only does the team have a deep roster of young and veteran talent, they have championship experience to boot. That experience came in handy when faced with a Game 7 against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Lightning may have one of the best teams in the NHL, but Boston is armed with a devastating top line with Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak (each with at least 30 goals). They have enough grit and toughness to withstand whatever the Lightning throw at them.
