NAS -113 O/U 6.5
Tampa has started to have some issues in getting the wins again this year as the Lightning have dropped their last 3 games. The last loss was 3-2 against the Carolina Hurricanes and it was a game which the Lightning looked out of in most of the game. The Lightning have dropped to a 12-9-3 record on the year so far.
The major issue for the Lightning on the year has not been the offense which is scoring at a clip of 3.63 goals a game and converting on the power play at 30.4% on the season. Instead, it is the defense which is giving up 3.29 goals a game and has managed to kill off 78% of the opponents power plays on the year.
Nashville is ranked 5th in the Central and has had a lot of problems in getting the wins picked up on the year and a lot of that can stem back to the offseason departures. The Predators are sitting on a 12-10-4 record right now and in the Predators last game on ice they were blanked by the Florida Panthers 3-0.
