Wednesday's NHL Prediction

2010 NHL Pick and Prediction for Wednesday October 13

Tampa Bay looks to get off to a 2-0 start in the 2010-11 NHL Season as the Lightning heads to Montreal for a 7:30PM ET game with the Canadiens on Wednesday.

Bet NHL Odds

Tampa Bay enters the game at 1-0-0 having won 5-3 in its season opener while the Canadiens are 1-1-0 on the season with tonight marking their first home game of the season.

Montreal leads the all-time series 31-24 in games placed since 1996, but the two teams have split 28 games in Montreal during that time.

Here are some trends to consider and my pick for this contest.

Tampa Bay Lightning at Montreal Canadiens 7:30PM ET

Trends favor Tampa Bay in this contest as the Lightning is 4-0 in their last four games overall and also 4-0 in their last four games against the Eastern Conference.

Montreal, on the other hand, is just 1-5 in their last six after a win and 1-4 in their last five as a favorite. They have also won just 2 of their last 7 against the East.

I know this is Montreal’s home opener, but I like a pick of Tampa Bay in this game as the Lightning should be a little fresher and also have a bigger payout without being a longshot.
