Anaheim Ducks vs Tampa Bay Lightning prediction

The Anaheim Ducks simply aren't a good team, and they certainly can't be trusted on the road against good teams. The Tampa Bay Lightning have played their best hockey at home where they're 13-5-3 on the season, and they've won 6 of the last 7 meetings against the Ducks, and most of those games weren't close. The Tampa Bay Lightning are also coming off a couple of nice overtime wins to give this group some confidence moving forward. Give me the Lightning and the PL to shave down the juice. The Ducks are fade material in these spots.
