The Tampa Bay Lightning look like a team that’s starting to put things together, and their defensive effort has improved for the most part. The Dallas Stars can’t string together victories, and they’re running into a Tampa team that’s owned them over the years. The price is reasonable. I’ll lay the juice with the Lightning at home.
