New Jersey Devils vs Tampa Bay Lightning prediction

The New Jersey Devils have played some of their best hockey on the road this season, so it's worth a look at the plus money, but they enter this contest in rough shape. The Tampa Bay Lightning have played their best consistent hockey over the last two weeks, and they're 16-5-3 at home this season. The Lightning have also won 7 of the last 10 games against the Devils, which includes an overtime win a couple of weeks ago. The price is reasonable. I have to side with the Lightning on their home ice.
