In a game from NHL, we will see Tampa Bay Lightning at Vegas Golden Knights.
The Tampa Bay Lightning extended their winning streak to 6 games after a ground out win over Colorado by 1:0. They look like the team to beat early in the NHL season. Their latest game looked like a playoff thriller. It had the same intensity and pressure as a postseason game. Andrei Vasilevskiy made 22 saves and recorded his first clean sheet for the season. The Lightning are 8th in goals scored with 3.50 per game and 3rd in the least goals allowed with 2.25.
Even though the Vegas Golden Knights snapped a losing streak earlier this week, they lost in a shootout afterwards against Vancouver by 2-3. Goalie Marc-Andre Fleury is now 4-3-1 for the season with a 2.36 GAA and a .904 save percentage and is 19-11-4 versus Tampa Bay in past encounters. Vegas is struggling to score goals as they are averaging just 2.11 per game and they are conceding 2.56 on the other side of the ball.
Vegas allowed just 4 goals in their last 4 games. Even though Tampa Bay’s offense was impressive in the first few weeks, it seems that they have a taken a step back. The under is a valuable pick in this one and I’m going for it.
