Tampa Bay Lightning vs Montreal Canadiens Prediction

Tonight we have a battle of teams going in different directions. The Tampa Bay Lightning have won three in a row, they are 7-2-1 their last ten games, and a smooth 16-5 in their last 21. Tampa is scoring 3.6 goals per game and Steven Stamkos has been red hot with seven assists his last ten games. Also, let’s not forget they are the champs as well and when they are clicking it’s hard to beat them.

On the other hand, the Montreal Canadiens are clearly not the same team this year and they are currently in a funk. Their record is a weak 2-7-1 in their last ten games. They have lost their last three games, and only have one win in their last six games. They are only scoring 2.5 goals a game while giving up 3.8 a game which is why they are the 29th rated defense in the league.

This is like a game where the bullies beat up the little kids in school. There won’t be any letdowns and Tampa Bay isn’t thinking ahead. This is just a win and move on game and to avoid the juice we take Tampa Bay to win in regulation. This looks like a 4-2 type battle and the Tampa Bay Lightning win easily and move on. The Montreal Canadiens have had five goals in their last three games, whereas Tampa scored seven in their last game alone.

Better team, better offense, better defense, better goalie, this is a mismatch take the Lightning from Lightning.
