The Tampa Bay Lightning continue their impressive hot streak and they're now a profitable team despite being massive favorites most nights. The Detroit Red Wings have shown signs of life here and there, but it's not enough to take a shot with them against the better teams in the league. The Lightning are head and shoulders the better team and will comfortably win most nights against the bottom of the barrel. Give me the Lightning and the PL.
