Tampa Bay Lightning
Tampa Bay looks sad this season. In 26 games, the team has only 11 wins and 15 losses, scoring only 27 points. With their lineup, the Lightning go even outside the playoff zone, and for the fans, it's a disaster. Recently, the team had a series of four defeats in regulation time in a row. After an embarrassing 1:8 loss to Dallas, Tampa Bay finally managed to win, and they got revenge on the Stars with a 4:0 shutout.
Pittsburgh, in turn, is located on the seventh line in the standings of the Metropolitan Division with 25 points. In 24 games, the Penguins have 11 wins with 13 losses, which is not a success. As for previous meetings, here, the Penguins do not know defeats in regulation time in the previous five in a row. But during this period, there were only two wins, and the day before, Pittsburgh twice lost to Philadelphia (3:4 in shootouts and 1:2 in overtime).
Expert Betting Tips
Bookmakers see Tampa Bay as the favorite in the upcoming meeting. However, we disagree with them - the fact is that Pittsburgh looks no worse. Moreover, the Lightning are extremely convenient opponents for the Penguins - lost in five previous face-to-face meetings. And now it seems the guests can extend their series without defeat in regulation time or even earn all two points. As the main bet, we offer X2.
