Tampa Bay Lightning DFS SPIN
Alex Killorn scored a goal on a team-high six shots in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Jets. Killorn opened the scoring 1:19 into the first period, taking a net-front feed from Anthony Cirelli before beating Connor Hellebuyck with a wrist shot. The goal is Killorn's 20th of the season, the third time in his 11-year career that he's reached that mark. The 33-year-old forward is up to 51 points through 67 games, eight shy of his career best set last season.
New Jersey Devils DFS SPIN
Jack Hughes recorded a goal and two assists in a 3-0 victory over Carolina on Sunday. Hughes opened the scoring early in the first period, and that marker proved to be the game-winner. He's up to 37 goals and 79 points in 62 contests this season. Hughes was held off the scoresheet over his previous three outings.

Lightning vs. Devils NHL BETTING PREDICTION
The home team is 20-9 in the last 29 meetings between these two teams while the favorite has hit in eight of the last 10 meetings. That said, the Lightning are also 8-2 in their last 10 games versus the Devils and have won in four of their last five trips to Jersey. Even though they’ve hit a rough patch of late (2-7 in their last nine games), I’m still jumping on the opportunity to back the Bolts as an underdog.
