The Lightning are 67-31 in their last 98 road games and 47-18 in their last 65 overall. The Hurricanes are 2-6 in their last 8 home games. The under is 4-0 in Lightning last 4 Thursday games. The under is 7-3-1 in Hurricanes last 11 overall. The Lightning are 20-6 in the last 26 meetings. The home team is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings. The under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.

The Tampa Bay Lightning are off to a strong start through four games and have an offense that's firing on all cylinders. The Carolina Hurricanes have looked good in their own right, but they also haven't played in 10 days and who knows how that impacts their rhythm. The Lightning have had no trouble winning on the road the last few years, and that includes wins in 14 of their last 19 trips in Carolina. The Hurricanes usually fold when going up against the Lightning. I'll lay the reasonable price with the road team.
