Tampa Bay Lightning at Pittsburgh Penguins

TB -104 O:U 6.5
The Tampa Bay Lightning are coming off of a six-game winning streak, attempting to get back to their late December- early January form where the Lightning went on a ten-game winning streak. In fact, the Lightning has not lost two games in a row since December 21st. The Lightning is coming off of a win over the New York Islanders in their last game. The Lightning does face the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday, so they will have to deal with back to back games.
The Tampa Bay Lightning are 35-15-5 on the season, with an away record of 17-8-3, playing pretty well away from their home arena. The Tampa Bay Lightning are one of the best offensive teams in all of the NHL, scoring the league's most goals in the NHL and are also in the top six in goals allowed, playing terrific on both ends of the ice.
The Pittsburgh Penguins are coming off of a win over the Florida Panthers, but they did lose to the Tampa Bay Lightning just a game ago, snapping a two-game winning streak that's saw the Pittsburgh Penguins win both of their games by the score of 4-3. In the two-game winning streak, the Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Washington Capitals and the Philadelphia Flyers.
The Pittsburgh Penguins are currently sitting in second place in the Metropolitan Division with a record of 34 - 15 - 5 on the season. The Pittsburgh Penguins have been remarkably consistent, as they are eighth goals scored, and fifth and goals allowed. That balance has made the Pittsburgh Penguins one of the best teams in the NHL, and are once again primed for a playoff run at the end of the season.
Tampa is 24-31 ATS this season
Lightning is 5-1 in their last six games playing on 0 days rest.
Pittsburgh is 25-29 ATS this season
Penguins are 7-1 in their last eight games as a home underdog.
Even though the Tampa Bay Lightning will likely be tired after having to travel to Columbus to play the Blue Jackets on Monday and then the Penguins on Tuesday, if there is a team that can handle that and still comes out winning both, it's the Tampa Bay Lightning. I think this game will be closer than the game they played a week ago, but I think the result will be the same, a Tampa Bay Lightning win. Final Score Prediction, Tampa Bay Lightning win 4-3.
