Tampa Bay Lightning vs. New York Rangers, 1PM ET (View Matchup)

The Lightning are just 1-4 in their last 5 games in New York while Tampa Bay is 25-10 in their last 35 games after scoring 5 goals or more in their previous contest. My pick for this game goes with New York at home. The Lightning have struggled on the road and also give up a lot of goals, so I see New York using its offensive prowess to sneak out the win.
