After three losses in a row, the Lightning are getting back on track. They already have a three-game winning streak under their belt, with a total score of 10-5. First there is a victory over Detroit in overtime, then in three pucks over the Islanders and finally over the powerful Carolina in OT. This puts Tampa Bay in contention for the top spot in the Atlantic Division standings, six points behind first-place Florida.
Chicago faces an extremely tough back-to-back. The will meet Florida in the first game and then Tampa after that.

The Blackhawks approach the back-to-back with two losses in a row – 4-5 (including OT) at the hands of Vegas and 5-6 by Buffalo.
