Never shy away from a team that has managed to go 24-11-0-2 on the road this season. The Lightning come in relatively healthy and have won three in a row, including a 7-6 win at the Islanders two nights ago. New Jersey ended a two-game losing skid with a 4-3 overtime victory at the Penguins last night. The Devils have won both meetings this season, but with an extra day of revenge and a little revenge factoring in take the Lightning with confidence here.
