The Chicago Blackhawks and Tampa Bay Lightning meet Friday in NHL action at the Amalie Arena.
The Chicago Blackhawks look for a bounce back performance after losing to the Lightning in their season opener. The Chicago Blackhawks are averaging one goal per game and are scoring on 25 percent of their power play opportunities. Dylan Strome leads Chicago with one goal, Adam Boqvist has one assist and Pius Suter has four shots on goal. Defensively, the Chicago Blackhawks are allowing five goals per game and are killing 33.3 percent of their opponents power plays. Malcolm Subban has given up five goals on 33 shots faced.
The Tampa Bay Lightning look for another win after beating the Blackhawks on Wednesday. The Tampa Bay Lightning are averaging five goals per game and are scoring on 66.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Steven Stamkos leads Tampa Bay with one goal, Alex Killorn has two assists and Anthony Cirelli has four shots on goal. Defensively, the Tampa Bay Lightning are allowing one goal per game and are killing 75 percent of their opponents power plays. Andrei Vasilevskiy has given up one goal on 23 shots faced.
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.
