There’s actually some solid value on the #1 team in hockey on Sunday afternoon as the Lightning and Panthers are both playing on the second leg of a B2B. Tampa Bay definitely has the travel advantage after staying in the state of Florida Saturday while the Panthers had to head to Washington. Are the Lightning an easy play in this one?
Tampa Bay Lightning
Tampa Bay hosted Pittsburgh Saturday night looking to snap a 2 game losing streak. The Lightning haven’t looked like the same team they were before the all-star break as 3 of their 5 games since returning have gone to OT. Of course the Lightning still boast the league’s #1 scoring offense to go along with a #6 defense.
Tampa Bay did go with their top goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy vs. the Penguins so it will be backup Louis Domingue manning the pipes on Sunday. He’s actually been a very capable 2nd stringer rattling off wins in 9 straight appearances although he has started just twice since Christmas.
The Panthers probably don’t have any feasible postseason hopes as they are 10 points behind the 8 seed in the East. That hasn’t stopped Florida from playing well lately however as they’ve gone 5-2 their last 7 games. The Panthers went 2-2 in four home games since returning from the break before traveling to face Washington on Saturday.
One thing the Panthers do well is prep on back-to-back games as they’ve won 4 of their last 5 on 0 days rest. Roberto Luongo hopes to improve on that trend as he gets the probable nod in net on Sunday. The veteran has played well with wins in 3 of 4 starts, allowing just 8 total goals over that span.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Lightning are 11-4 their last 15 Sunday games

- Lightning are 5-0 the last 5 H2H meetings
Free Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Florida Panthers NHL Prediction:
It’s a tough scheduling snafu making Florida go on the road after 4 straight home games to play in Washington on the front end of a B2B. They do get a break with Tampa Bay being a bit fatigued as well after their battle with Pittsburgh on Saturday. The Lightning have struggled lately, but you have to think they are too good to drop this one.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Play UNDER 6…strong lean on Lightning -140
Tampa Bay has a more-than-capable backup goaltender that gives them the edge in this one.
