Tampa Bay Lightning v. Carolina Hurricanes (@Amalie Arena – Tampa, FL)
Getting straight into this one the Lightning have looked good as of late going 6-2-2 in their last 10 games. With the loss of Ben Bishop to the Kings the other night the lightning came out firing and took a 5-1 win on the road against a great Ottawa team who is 9th best in the NHL in GAA at home AND plays the trap. Carolina is tied for 26th in the NHL in Goals For (2.23/Game) as the away team while being the 8th worst in Goals Against as the away team (3.10/Game). Carolina has also been a horrible 3-5-2 in their last 10 and is going on their 3rd GAME IN 4 DAYS. Tampa is 16-11-2 at home vs. a tired, terrible Carolina side who is a god awful 7-16-7 (the 5th worst in the NHL).
PICK: Tampa Bay to win. (-170)
