The Blackhawks are 0-5 in their last 5 road games and 1-5 in their last 6 overall. The Lightning are 100-45 in their last 145 home games and 45-17 in their last 62 overall. The under is 5-2 in Blackhawks last 7 overall. The under is 3-0-3 in Lightning last 6 home games. The Blackhawks are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in Tampa Bay and 1-9 in the last 10 meetings.

I mentioned in my first Chicago Blackhawks write up that they're in complete rebuild mode and they're going to lose a lot of games this season. A painful season for Blackhawks fans. While it's just one game, the Tampa Bay Lightning had their way in the season opener and didn't allow the Blackhawks to do anything on the offensive end. I just don't have much confidence in the Blackhawks in this matchup. As I did in the first matchup, I'll lay the PL with the Tampa Bay Lightning.
