The Tampa Bay Lightning have the best odds to win the Stanley Cup Final since the 2002 Detroit Red Wings. That year Detroit finished with 116 points compared to their opponent the Carolina Hurricanes who finished with 74 points. The gap between the Canadiens isn't that drastic but of course this was a shortened season as the Canadiens finished with the least amount of points for any team that qualified for the playoffs with 59. Tampa finished a surprising third in their division but still managed 75.
