Tampa Bay Lightning
Due to their latest upset loss to Vegas in a penalty shot, the Lightning could not cut into Florida's lead in the Atlantic Division table. At the moment, they are separated by three points. Tampa needs to beat the Sharks in the upcoming game, as the Panthers face a lowly Columbus, where they are likely to score points. We should also remind you how recently Tampa Bay beat San Jose, scoring as many as seven goals and conceding only one.
San Jose Sharks
San Jose's form leaves a lot to be desired. They have only scored three points in the last five games, which has put them out of the playoff spot, missing out on Calgary. If this continues, the Sharks risk slipping to sixth in the Pacific Division standings as lower-ranked Edmonton breathes right down their neck. In their last three games, the Sharks defeated Washington by three pucks, then lost in overtime to Florida, and finally suffered a narrow loss to Carolina.
