The Tampa Bay Lightning and St. Louis Blues face off on Saturday in an NHL showdown at the Enterprise Center. When these two teams faced off in November of 2022 it was Tampa Bay that secured the 5-2 victory. 

Tampa Bay comes into this game with a 26-13-1 record and they have gone 9-9-0 away from home. On Thursday against the Vancouver Canucks, the Lightning scored five goals and that led to the one goal victory. The Lightning are averaging 3.58 goals while their defense is giving up 2.95 goals per game. The offense is ranked 4th in the league, and it’s going to be important that the offense is strong here. Nikita Kucherov has scored 17 goals and added 44 assists so far this season. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Blues who sit with a 21-19-3 record overall and they have gone 8-9-2 at home. This has been an inconsistent team this season for the Blues and they are coming off another loss in the last game. The offense only managed one goal against the Flames in the last game and that led to the three goal defeat. The Blues are averaging 3.12 goals while their defense is giving up 3.58 goals per game. The defense is ranked 25th, and they need the defense to be better here. Jordan Kyrou has scored 20 goals and added 21 assists.

The Lightning are 1-4 in their last five road games. The over is 5-2-1 in the Lightning’s last eight games against the Western Conference. The over is 2-0-2 in the Lightning’s last four games. The under is 5-1-1 in the Lightning’s last seven games when their opponent scores two goals or less in their previous games. 

This Blues defense is an issue, and it’s going to be what lets them down again here. St. Louis is giving up 3.58 goals and they are going to really struggle to defend again in this game. Look for Tampa Bay to score four or five goals and that will be enough for the Lightning to get the job done. Back the Lightning on the money line.
