Nikita Kucherov leads Tampa Bay with eight goals, Victor Hedman has 16 assists and Kevin Shattenkirk has 53 shots on goal.

Andrei Vasilevskiy has given up 42 goals on 465 shots faced and Curtis McElhinney has allowed 21 goals on 236 shots. The Tampa Bay Lightning have allowed three or more goals in six of their last nine games.

The Hurricanes are 4-1 in their last 5 road games, 12-4 in their last 16 games playing on 0 days rest and 12-5 in their last 17 Saturday games. The Lightning are 37-14 in their last 51 games as a home favorite, 37-14 in their last 51 home games and 56-25 in their last 81 games as a favorite. The under is 4-1 in Hurricanes last 5 overall. The over is 4-0 in Lightning last 4 overall. The Hurricanes are 1-10 in the last 11 meetings in Tampa Bay and 6-20 in the last 26 meetings. The avorite is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings. The home team is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings. The under is 7-3-1 in the last 11 meetings in Tampa Bay.

When two teams are on the end of a back to back, it usually gives the edge to the home team, as that crowd can provide an extra boost that make you forget about tired legs. The Tampa Bay Lightning have also won seven of the last nine meetings against the Hurricanes and have been highly effective as a home favorite. This is also a rather cheap price with Tampa Bay at home, as it's not uncommon to see prices of -180 and -200. I'll lay the cheap price with the The Tampa Bay Lightning on their home ice.
