The Detroit Red Wings and Tampa Bay Lightning meet Friday in NHL action at the Amalie Arena.
The Detroit Red Wings look to snap a seven-game losing streak. The Detroit Red Wings are averaging 1.9 goals per game and are scoring on 10.5 percent of their power play opportunities. Tyler Bertuzzi leads Detroit with five goals, Filip Hronek has six assists and Dylan Larkin has 35 shots on goal. Defensively, the Detroit Red Wings are allowing 3.6 goals per game and are killing 69.4 percent of their opponents power plays. Thomas Greiss has given up 13 goals on 129 shots faced and Jonathan Bernier has allowed 13 goals on 109 shots.
The Tampa Bay Lightning look to stay hot while building on their 6-1-1 record. The Tampa Bay Lightning are averaging 3.6 goals per game and are scoring on 20.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Ondrej Palat leads Tampa Bay with four goals, Victor Hedman has six assists and Brayden Point has 26 shots on goal. Defensively, the Tampa Bay Lightning are allowing 2.1 goals per game and are killing 82.8 percent of their opponents power plays. Andrei Vasilevskiy has given up 16 goals on 220 shots faced.
The Red Wings are 9-42 in their last 51 road games and 12-50 in their last 62 overall. The Lightning are 66-28 in their last 94 home games and 50-19 in their last 69 overall. The over is 4-0 in Lightning last 4 home games. The over is 4-1 in Lightning last 5 overall. The Red Wings are 5-21 in the last 26 meetings in Tampa Bay and 4-23 in the last 27 meetings.
This line is downright insane, but it's for good reason. The Detroit Red Wings are in awful form, and they've had zero success the last two years both on the road and in the underdog role. The Tampa Bay Lightning are playing like the favorites to repeat as champs, and they just beat the Red Wings on Wednesday, 5-1. There's no choice but to side with the Lightning and the PL, but even that is going to be a juicy price. The Lightning should roll big here.
