Lightning vs Predators NHL Odds
Tampa Bay Lightning (+120) at Nashville Predators (-133)
Tuesday matchup between the Tampa Bay Lightning and Nashville Predators is the NHL game of the week fans get the treat of seeing the first place team from the Eastern Conference go up against the best form the West. This is the first time the two teams meet this season and they are scheduled to see each other one more time in late March. If they maintain their dominance, maybe they will meet in the Stanley Cup Finals.
What to watch from the Tampa Bay Lightning (34-16-5, 73 points)
The Lightning are coming off of a big 5-3 win over the Pacific Division’s first place team, the Anaheim Ducks. That bodes well for their confidence going into this game against Nashville who is tops in the Pacific Division. Beating the Predators means that the Lightning will have beaten the two best teams in the NHL in back-to-back games.
Tampa Bay is the top scoring team in the league, averaging 3.22 per game. Coming on strong for them is Brian Boyle. The big forward scored two goals in the win over the Ducks and his versatyle play is a key to the team’s successful season.
What to watch from the Nashville Predators (35-12-6, 76 points)
The Predators are going for their third straight win after their rare loss at home to the Ducks. Nashville loves playing on their own ice and has the best home record in the NHL at 21-3-1.
In the last five meetings, the Predators have had the Lightning’s number, winning four of the contests. Playing at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville they have won three in a row.
NHL Picks: Predators
Nashville can redeem their home loss to the Ducks last week by taking care of business against another high level opponent. Expect the Predators to play with an added sense of pride in front of their fans who are accustomed to seeing their team pick up wins at home. A win against the best team from the East will be a sweet way to kick off a four game home stand.
