Tampa Bay Lightning at Philadelphia Flyers

TB -145 O/U 6.5

The Tampa Bay Lightning (26 - 13 - 4) are hitting the road this weekend to square off against the hometown Philadelphia Flyers (23 - 15 - 6). Philadelphia will be hosting this game at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA. Tampa Bay comes into this game as one of the hottest teams in the NHL, having won nine games straight. Philadelphia just scored a nice win over Washington and the Flyers will look to turn that into a much-needed winning streak. Tampa Bay will be favored in what should be a close and competitive game.

Tampa Bay has been an electric team on offense all season long. Averaging more than 3.70 goals per game, Tampa Bay is able to light up the net on a nightly basis. Nikita Kucherov (17 goals, 32 assists) has been a dynamic force while attacking the net, and he will be our player to highlight in this game. Tampa Bay will look to Andre Vasilevskiy (21 - 9 - 2, 2.66 GAA) to mind the net. 

The Philadelphia Flyers come into this game desperate to get back into a rhythm. Philadelphia has dropped four out of their past five games, falling in the division as a result. Philadelphia will look to their elite defense to keep Tampa Bay in check. Philadelphia is surrendering just 2.98 GAA. Philadelphia will have Carter Hart (14 - 10 - 3, 2.58 GAA) in the net for this meeting.

  • Tampa Bay are 9-0 SU in their last 9 games.
  • Tampa Bay are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games against Philadelphia.
  • Philadelphia are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.
  • The total has gone OVER in 8 of Philadelphia's last 8 games against Tampa Bay.

 

The Lightning have a great offense and a defense that has improved dramatically. Look for the Lightning to work great as a team in the game here.  The Flyers for all they have done will have some issues in winning the game here. We like Tampa Bay to overcome Philadelphia. Final Score Prediction, Tampa Bay Lightning win 3 - 2.
