In a game from NHL, we will see Tampa Bay Lightning at Pittsburgh Penguins.
The Tampa Bay Lightning entered the All-star break with a 6-3 win over San Jose and they will be looking to repeat this when they visit the Penguins at Pittsburgh. The team was very effective in that game, scoring 6 goals on just 26 attempts. Even though the offense isn’t flowing, they are able to take advantage even from the little openings in the other teams’ half. Andrei Vasilevskiy played very well in the win, allowing a goal on every 13 shots he faced.
The Pittsburgh Penguins have already played their first game of the second half of the season but things didn’t look very good for them. They lost to the New Jersey Devils at home by 3 goals. They allowed 6 goals in this contest on 32 shots. The Pens didn’t show effectiveness in front of goal as they had 40 shots but managed to score just 3 goals.
The Penguins’ defense is very leaky and I expect this to turn into a shootout once again. Pittsburgh can get few goals on their own and I expect them to have a good game but the Lightning can also find the back of the net at will.
