Lightning have four-game win-streak snapped

Tampa Bay lost by a score of 4-3 Friday night versus Winnipeg to drop to 9-6-2 on the season.

NHL Betting Trends

Tampa Bay

The Lightning are 14-6 in their last 20 Saturday games. Tampa Bay is 57-25 in its last 82 games overall. 

St. Louis

The Blues are 21-7 in their last 28 games as an underdog. St. Louis is 8-3 in its last 11 Tuesday games.

Prediction:

The Blues have slumped lately, but have shown the ability to rise to the occasion as proven by their Stanley Cup championship. The Lightning have looked vulnerable at times this season and if St. Louis can play a clean but physical game while being organized on the back end, I see a path to a win for the hosts here.
