Lightning at Rangers 2/2/19 - NHL Picks & Predictions

The Lightning are keeping on the road in this game here. However, this time the road trip to the opponent is a lot shorter than what it was before as the Lightning are playing the Islanders on Friday night. Now the Lightning are going to be playing the other New York team here and the Rangers are a shell of the Islanders and are nothing like the Islanders on the season. That should make it a little bit easier for the Lightning to play this game even when they are playing in back to back games. The Lightning on the season have been able to score at a clip of 3.96 goals a game on the season, but have allowed only 2.88 goals a game so far. The Lightning on the power play have converted at 29.8%, but have killed off 83.9%.

With the Rangers the season has not gone nearly as good as what they would have liked and they are really struggling as the team has only managed to score 2.76 goals a game. The Rangers have allowed 3.32 goals a game. When it comes to the power play the Rangers have converted at 21.1%, but the team has killed off 76.6%.

The Lightning have been able to play at a high level and it is about time for the Lighting to bounce back from the slump they have had on the year as the team starts off slow each time after a break. That could easily spell disaster for the Rangers in this game here as the Lightning are at the point of bouncing back and they should easily trip up the Rangers offense, but also control the Rangers defense. Final Score Prediction, Tampa Bay Lightning win 5-1.
