The Lightning have been able to go 7-2-1 in their previous 10 head-to-head matchups against the Sabres. The over/under has gone 5-5.
Tampa Bay has been able to put the puck in the net for an average of 3.40 goals per night during the 10-game span while giving up an average of 2.70 to Buffalo.
The Lightning have been able to light the lantern for seven power-play goals on 29 opportunities compared to five from the Sabres on 20 chances.
I’m liking the Lightning to win at home on Monday. They are scoring more goals per game and have higher percentages on both the power-play and the penalty kill.
Both of these teams spend over 200 minutes per game in the penalty box and I see a power-play goal or two for the Lightning being the difference in the game.
