Tuesday's NHL Best Bets: Tampa Bay Lightning vs Columbus Blue Jackets, Wild vs Coyotes, and More

Well, I’ve never written an article on three games and just given out one play before so I am not going to do that but I’m just walking down the line in this one. These spots are obvious and straightforward in my opinion; it is time to get down to the top sixteen and we have seen that.

Tampa Bay Lightning vs Columbus Blue Jackets

For Tampa Bay this is routine; they are exactly where they should be, have been before, and need to be to do it again. They do not make as much noise in comparison to the rest of the top-tier teams in the league but that is because it is just genuinely expected at this point.

Despite their win over Edmonton in their contest of the weekend, Columbus had dropped four straight and they have to go to Tampa Bay tonight to face the reigning back-to-back Stanley Cup Champions who are doing work right now.

Tampa has won its last three games against excellent squads in Nashville, Toronto, and Florida (whom all will be in the playoffs) and absolutely embarrassed them.

I’m not exaggerating. They beat all four teams by at least four goals and have now scored 34 goals in their last five games. If the offense keeps clicking like I am sure they will, Vasilevsky should do the rest. Tamps is getting ready to run.

Minnesota Wild vs Arizona Coyotes

Minnesota is in St. Paul with Fleury in net hungry to win his playoff starting spot. Minnesota is also fighting for positioning here in the playoffs as things wind down and want to secure home ice for this series with the red hot St. Louis Blues.

Minnesota has won five straight scoring 27 goals total in those games and have 51 wins this season; Arizona has lost five straight, conceded 26 goals in those games, and have 50 losses this season. Look for Minnesota to take care of business here.

New York Islanders vs Washington Capitals

The same thing goes for Washington and New York; The Capitals are at home, playing amazing hockey and desperately trying to avoid the Panthers in the first round. New York on the other hand has now lost five straight after being taken out of playoff contention and blew their last two games.

Detroit concedes more than anyone and are done for the year but still playing hard, good hockey. They will match pace with Toronto and this one should be similar to the previous meetings this season which ended 5-4, 7-4, and 10-7 all at the hands of Toronto. I have a bonus play for you all.
