Tampa Bay Lightning
Tampa Bay is in great form with four wins in its last five games. They managed to beat Columbus (7:2), Calgary (4:1), Buffalo (6:1) and Vancouver (4:2). However, the Lightning lost to Boston by a score of 2:5. They continue to chase leading Florida in the Atlantic Division table. The teams have 55 points each, but since the Panthers have played two games fewer, they are in the lead.
Dallas gained noticeable momentum in late December 2021, winning four times straight after a five-game losing streak. Unfortunately, on January 9, the line ended in St. Louis, where it curiously lost to a local team (1:2). Then there was a victory over Seattle (5:2), and in the last matchup, the Stars literally blew out Florida (1:7). Thus, Dallas occupies sixth place in the Central Division standings with 38 points.
Expert Betting Tips
Tampa Bay is in optimal shape with four wins in their previous five games and a battle for the division lead. On the other hand, Dallas has had another defeat after the winning streak.

Prediction: Tampa Bay wins.
