Tampa Bay has won three straight meetings with the Blackhawks, but this is the first meeting this season. Tampa has won six straight against Central division opponents and 10 of its last 13 home games. The Blackhawks are 2-6 in their last eight following a win. I expect the Lightning to continue to pile up the goals at home while the Blackhawks struggle to match. The public betting for tonight’s game is heavily with the Lightning and I side with them.
