Saturday NHL action pits the Philadelphia Flyers against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Tampa Bay Lightning look to begin another winning streak after a 4-3 win at Pittsburgh snapped a two game skid on Thursday. Patric Hornqvist led the Penguins with two goals with Phil Kessel also lighting the lamp. Evgeni Malkin added a pair of helpers for Pittsburgh with Matt Murray allowing four goals on 26 shots to get the loss.

Brayden Point carried the Tampa Bay offense with three power play goals for the hat trick while Yanni Gourde also scored with the man advantage. Nikita Kucherov gave the Lightning three assists and Louis Dominique picked up the win with 28 saves.

The Philadelphia Flyers are looking to get back in the win column after a 3-0 defeat to visiting New Jersey on Thursday saddled the team with back to back losses. The Flyers offense was held in check for the second straight game which made a loser of Brian Elliott who gave up two goals on 25 shots.

The Devils received scoring in the first from Joey Anderson with Kyle Palmieri and Blake Coleman finding the back of the net in the third. Coleman also had two assists to lift New Jersey and the 29 stops of Keith Kinkaid to the victory.

Over is 3-0-1 in Lightning last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and over is 3-0-1 in Lightning last 4 games following a win and over is 12-1 in Lightning last 13 road games vs. a team with a losing home record. Flyers are 0-4 in their last 4 vs. Eastern Conference and over is 4-1-1 in Flyers last 6 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of greater than .600 and Flyers are 4-1 in their last 5 games following a home loss of 3 or more goals. Over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Philadelphia and Lightning are 14-6 in the last 20 meetings and over is 33-15-4 in the last 52 meetings. 

The Flyers have one goal in two games and I think Tampa Bay does too much damage on the scoreboard for Philadelphia to keep up…

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.
