New Jersey Devils
The Devils played the first game of a double with Tampa Bay after three consecutive wins. Lindy Ruff's team beat Washington, Montreal, and Carolina. Through the efforts of Damon Severson, the Devils scored only one goal. They missed 1:4. This match showed that despite the high position in the table in the regular season, New Jersey would have a challenging time in the playoffs, for example, against the same Tampa Bay.
Tampa Bay Lightning
It was important for John Cooper's team to win New Jersey because it had won only two victories in nine games before that. And the Lightning achieved it even without the injured Steven Stamkos. In addition, in the Tampa Bay lineup, following the results of this match, it is worth highlighting Brandon Hagel, who issued 1 + 2 in the goal + pass system. Tampa Bay has once again confirmed its highest class.
Expert Betting Tips
So, before the victory of Tampa Bay 4:1, the Lightning won with a score of 6:3. Before that, it was 3:2 again in favor of Tampa Bay, and even earlier, 5:3 in favor of New Jersey. Why shouldn't this trend continue, and after an unsuccessful match between each other, the teams don't play effectively? We believe that it will happen. In addition, we will give the advantage in the upcoming match to New Jersey. The Devils have lost only a third of their games at home this season in regular time and are unlikely to lose to the Lightning for the second time in a row. Moreover, this season, the Lightning has only 12 wins in 33 away matches.
