Tampa Bay Lightning

First, the Lightning beat New Jersey and Arizona, then Edmonton and Nashville.
Ottawa does not look bad on the road. The Senators have won their last two away games. First, they beat Washington by three pucks and then Buffalo by two. As for the previous games, Ottawa beat Minnesota at home and then lost to Montreal (1:2). The Senators' chances of making the playoffs are extremely low.

Expert Betting Tips
Of course, Tampa looks better in this matchup, but we still recommend writing off Ottawa. The Senators have not been playing the most productive hockey recently, plus they have won three of their last five games on the road. This tells us that the visitors' defense is doing its job, and in the upcoming game, it will be difficult for Lightning to get past it. The bookmakers think that many pucks will be scored in the match, which is excellent news for us. We suggest betting on Total Under (6.5). Prediction: Total Under (6.5).
