Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Florida Panthers Prediction: Can Nikita Kucherov, Lighting Put Up Goals in Game 2?

Now onto the ice. Last night really lit a flame for these NHL Playoffs, awesome, action packed games across the board and with game two's across the board here tonight. I expect another excellent night here on the ice. We are heading back to the battle of South Florida here in this one as the Tampa Bay Lightning look to rebound and even up the series with the Florida Panthers and I expect fireworks as we see two of the leagues best go head-to-head.

Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Florida Panthers Prediction

I truly believe whoever wins this series is a Stanley Cup contender, that's why I hate them playing each other in round one. Don't get me wrong, it gives us great hockey and there are no two teams I would want to see play each other more but it sucks one of them will be done for the postseason next week.

I will rant and rave about both net minders - Andrei Vasilevskiy and Sergei Bobrovsky are truly world class between the pipes and two goalies I would be proud to back any time. With that said, I expect goals tonight and will bite anytime I can get a total this low with teams of this caliber.

The only way this goes under is if both net minders stand on their heads for a full sixty. Four of the last six head-to-head cleared this number with the other two falling half a goal shy at five. If Tampa wants to win I think they need to score four goals and knowing hoe detrimental a 2-0 deficit to a team of this caliber would be to their postseason aspirations, I expect Nikita Kucherov and the Bolts to be fired up here tonight.
