It’s an Eastern Conference showdown that kicks off on Thursday at the Amalie Arena. The New Jersey Devils make the trip to Tampa to take on the Tampa Bay Lightning.
On paper, these teams look very different and looks like a huge mismatch. The Lightning have actually lost all three games against the Devils though, so there is a chance this could be very competitive.
New Jersey Devils
For the New Jersey Devils they had a very up and down season and they had to have a strong finish to their season to even make the playoffs.
Coming into this game they have won seven of the last ten games and they got at least one point in eight of those ten games.
For the Devils they aren’t a great offensive team, but they seem to make the big plays when it counts. They really count on Taylor Hall who finished in 6th place in the NHL in scoring this year and if they want to pull the upset he is going to need the series of his life.
Tampa Bay Lightning
On the other side of this matchup is the Tampa Bay Lightning who come into this series as big favorites and they actually have the second-best odds to win the Stanley Cup, right behind the Nashville Predators.
For the Lightning they have looked like a contender all season, and most of that has to do with how well the offense plays.
Coming into this game they are averaging 3.5 goals per game, while putting 32.7 shots on goal per game. In this series that offense is going to need to be good and they need to try and put as many shots on goal as possible..
In the defensive zone the Lightning are a lot like the Devils. They don’t give up a ton of goals but they let up a ton of shots on goal.
