New Jersey has scored more points than the 11 games before in the last three games. First, the team blew out Montreal on the road with a score of 7:1. Then it made a rather sensational victory over St. Louis, once again scoring seven goals and conceding four. Finally, the Devils lost to a tough Pittsburgh team by two goals. New Jersey's placing in the Metropolitan Division standings is pretty dire. It has scored 39 points in 49 games, 22 fewer than fourth-place Washington.
Tampa Bay faced Arizona in a highly competitive meeting and had some trouble scoring two points, beating the Coyotes by just one puck. Thus, the Lightning reduced the gap of first Florida to one point, but the Panthers have one game to spare. So, there is no way Tampa can lose points in the game ahead, or the consequences could be disastrous.
Expert Betting Tips
Tampa Bay is superior to its opponent, but New Jersey has performed well in the last three games. The Lightning hardly shows a stable playing on the road, but they have to earn points against the outsider. In our opinion, Tampa will gain a hard-fought win. Prediction: 2X + ТU (7,5).
