Both of these teams are among the best in hockey. The Lightning are currently the #2 seed in the East and the Capitals are right behind them at the #3 seed. Each team can really light the lamp and have great offenses and power play units. While Holtby is a fantastic net minder for Washington I give a slight advantage to Tampa Bay in this regards with Andrei Vasilevskiy, a Vezina trophy candidate with a 2.56 GAA. The bottom line is this game simply means a lot more to the Lightning than the Capitals. It was embarrassing for the Lightning franchise the way they got bounced from the playoffs last season. While this game is not a playoff game, it is so important for Tampa Bay to be playing good hockey once the round robin segment ends. Look for them to come out strong and make a statement. Take the Tampa Bay Lightning.
