The Nashville Predators and Tampa Bay Lightning meet Monday in NHL action at the Amalie Arena.
The Nashville Predators look for a win here to get a game above a .500 record. The Nashville Predators are averaging 2.4 goals per game and are scoring on 12.1 percent of their power play opportunities. Filip Forsberg leads Nashville with four goals, Viktor Arvidsson has four assists and Roman Josi has 30 shots on goal. Defensively, the Nashville Predators are allowing three goals per game and are killing 63.6 percent of their opponents power plays. Juuse Saros has allowed 12 goals on 146 shots faced and Pekka Rinne has allowed 11 goals on 84 shots.
The Tampa Bay Lightning look for a win to build on their 4-1-1 record. The Tampa Bay Lightning are averaging 3.2 goals per game and are scoring on 23.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Ondrej Palat leads Tampa Bay with three goals, Victor Hedman has five assists and Brayden Point has 21 shots on goal. Defensively, the Tampa Bay Lightning are allowing 2.3 goals per game and are killing 77.3 percent of their opponents power plays. Andrei Vasilevskiy has given up 13 goals on 173 shots faced.
The Predators are 0-5 in their last 5 road games and 40-14 in their last 54 Monday games. The Lightning are 64-28 in their last 92 home games and 48-19 in their last 67 overall. The under is 4-1-1 in Lightning last 6 Monday games. The over is 3-0-1 in Predators last 4 Monday games. The Predators are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Tampa Bay and 13-5 in the last 18 meetings. The road team is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
The Tampa Bay Lightning are going to be favored almost every time they take the ice, especially at home. However, the Nashville Predators have been decent this season and have had success against the Lightning, which includes forcing overtime in two of the last three meetings. The Preds also made a game of things late a couple of days ago, scoring twice in the third period. There's some value to the plus money with the Nashville Predators. I'll take it.
