Wednesday's NHL Prediction
Two division leaders meet up Wednesday in the NHL as the Tampa Bay Lightning hosts the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Both teams have 11 points on the season and each have scored 27 goals. The Lightning are 5-2-1 this year and are 2-1-1 at home while the Penguins are 5-3-1 on the season and 3-0-1 on the road. The Penguins have won three of the last four games in Tampa Bay.
Here is a look at the trends and my pick for Wednesday’s game.
Pittsburgh Penguins at Tampa Bay Lightning, 7:30PM ET
Trends favor Pittsburgh in this game as they are 5-2 in their last seven games with Tampa Bay. The Penguins are also 4-1 in their last five games against the Eastern Conference and 8-3 in their last 11 road games.
Tampa Bay is just 1-4 in their last five games when playing on two days of rest while they are also 17-43 in their last 60 games against the Atlantic Division.
