Tuesday NHL features the New York Islanders hosting the Vancouver Canucks.

The Tampa Bay Lightning saw their four game winning streak end in a 6-4 defeat at Ottawa on Saturday. Mathieu Joseph led Tampa Bay with a pair of goals with Victor Hedman and Braydon Coburn also lighting the lamp. Alex Killorn logged two assists and Andrei Vasilevskiy took the loss for the Lightning with six goals allowed on 34 shots.

The balanced Senators offense received scoring from Matt Duchene, Bobby Ryan, Brady Tkachuk, Colin White, Ryan Dzingel and Mark Stone. Tkachuk and Ryan added two helpers each and Craig Anderson picked up the win for Ottawa with 24 stops.

The  Buffalo Sabres have been playing well with wins in three of four after a 4-3 SO win versus visiting Vancouver on Saturday. Loui Eriksson, Jake Virtanen and Erik Gudbranson found the back of the net for the Canucks with Antoine Roussel posting two assists while Jacob Markstrom gave up three goals on 37 shots.

The Sabres saw goals off the sticks off Nathan Beaulieu, Jeff Skinner, Sam Reinhart in regulation with Jack Eichel and Casey Mittelstadt scoring in the SO. Rasmus Ristolainen and Rasmus Dahlin added two helpers apiece for Buffalo and Carter Hutton got the win with 36 stops.

Over is 2-0-2 in Lightning last 4 after allowing 5 goals or more in their previous game and Lightning are 6-0 in their last 6 Tuesday games and Lightning are 5-0 in their last 5 after allowing 5 goals or more in their previous game. Over is 3-0-1 in Sabres last 4 vs. Atlantic and Sabres are 0-4 in their last 4 games playing on 2 days rest and over is 4-0-1 in Sabres last 5 when their opponent allows 5 goals or more in their previous game. Lightning are 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Buffalo and Lightning are 20-8 in the last 28 meetings and under is 14-6-4 in the last 24 meetings. 

The Sabres have been on the uptick but I’m banking on the Lightning to get back in the win column…

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
