Money Line Pick
There will be plenty of electricity in the air, as the Bruins and Lightning go to war on the ice at Amalie Arena. Boston will look for just their second win in the last 11 head-to-head meetings, as Tampa Bay has proven to be a bit of kryptonite for the Bruins. The Lighting has lost a little mojo lately however dropping four of their last five games. Yet Tampa has righted the ship with a standout 4-3 win over Calgary in their last game. The Bruins are 0-5 in their last five visits to Amalie Arena. Boston will need to get on the board quickly if they want to slow down the NHL’s top offensive team. This match-up is bound to be exciting, but taking Tampa at home has proven valuable. Take the Lightning on the money line.
Over Under Pick
Boston was able to put up two goals in their last visit to Amalie, but it wasn’t enough as Tampa escaped with a 3-2 win. The two prior meetings resulted in seven-goals or more totals. Each of the Lightning’s last seven games has resulted in totals greater than six. Even with Boston’s recent struggles offensively, taking an over six-goal total is a must in this clash of Atlantic Divison giants.
