The Line: Tampa Bay Lightning / Los Angeles Kings --- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
One of the teams best known for the defensive play will look to shut down one that's known for its offense on Tuesday night. The Los Angeles Kings got off to a slow start offensively but have since settled down and seen Jonathan Quick return to form. He's one of the best goaltenders in the National Hockey League and should be the starter for the United States Olympic hockey team at the Sochi games in February. This is a dangerous game for the Kings because a team like the Tampa Bay Lightning has the type of fire power that can cause you to get off your game. The Lightning will look to exploit any turnover and press the issue every chance they get. Los Angeles can't fall into the trap of trying to run and gun with them because they'll be playing right into the Lightning's hands. Los Angeles has the experience and the personnel necessary to keep things calm and do what they need to do to pick up a win on the road.
