Matchup History

Tampa Bay’s 6-3 win back on February 15th, 2022, made it back-to-back wins over the Devils in this head-to-head matchup.


Tampa Bay is 0-6 in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record and 2-7 in their last 9 games overall while the over is 4-0-1 in their last 5 games against the Metropolitan division. New Jersey is 9-2 in their last 11 home games and 44-20 in their last 64 games overall while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record.


I’m backing the Devils here. The Lightning just don’t look right at the moment, which is odd and something that’s hard to find myself saying still, as we’re so used to the Lightning being one of the NHL’s elite year after year. New Jersey is one of the new elite teams and they’re rolling right now no matter where they’re playing and I think the Devils snag another win here. Give me New Jersey here.
