Robin Lehner stopped 28-of-30 shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Florida Panthers. Lehner allowed a back-breaking shorthanded goal near the end of the first period that pulled the Panthers level with the Knights. However he was solid the rest of the way, including making 12 third-period shots to give his team a chance to tie it before Florida scored two final-minute empty-net goals. Lehner owns a 17-12-1 record with a 2.82 goals-against average and .908 save percentage.

Tampa Bay Lightning DFS Spin

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed two goals on 33 shots during Thursday's 3-2 win over the New Jersey Devils. Vasilevskiy gave up a power play goal to Damon Severson (1-0) in the first period and he gave up the game-tying goal (2-2) in the third frame off a weird bounce off the boards in the third, but the Lightning still found a way to win thanks to Anthony Cirelli's go-ahead goal. Vasilevskiy now has five wins in his last six games. He owns a 24-7-3 record with a 2.25 goals-against-average and a .922 save percentage this season. He's one of the three best fantasy options at his position right now and that shouldn't change.

Golden Knights vs. Lightning Betting Prediction

The underdog is 5-2 in the last seven meetings between these two teams, while the Golden Knights are 2-3 in their last 15 games following a loss of three or more goals and are 7-2 in their last nine road games. They’re also 10-4 in their last 14 games when their opponent allowed two goals or less in their previous game and are 37-17 in their last 54 games in the fourth game of a 4-in-6 situation.
