The Red Wings are 18-39 in their last 57 Sunday games and 23-48 in their last 71 games playing on 0 days rest. The Lightning are 4-1 in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 38-16 in their last 54 games as a favorite. The under is 4-0 in Red Wings last 4 overall. The under is 4-1-1 in Lightning last 6 home games. The Red Wings are 5-22 in the last 27 meetings in Tampa Bay and 17-35-1 in the last 53 meetings. The home team is 21-8 in the last 29 meetings. The favorite is 23-4 in the last 27 meetings.

The Detroit Red Wings continue to come up short on the offensive end and the losses are getting out of control. Playing on the end of a back to back won't help matters. The Tampa Bay Lightning win regardless of the situation and they've now won four of the five meetings this season against the Red Wings. Not much different from yesterdays game. Give me the Lightning and the PL for max betting value. I have no use for the Red Wings in their current form.
