Penguins vs. Lightning Prediction

I’m on the Penguins here. It was nice for Tampa Bay to get a bounce back win over the Stars after being humiliated the game before, but I’m not ready to just jump back on the Bolts after one win. Pittsburgh’s owned this matchup in past seasons and already has a win over Tampa Bay this season. Give me the Penguins.
