The Lightning have won the last four games played between the two teams.
Tampa Bay Lightning
What a season it has been for the Tampa Bay Lightning and anything less than a Stanley Cup Championship has to be a disappointment.
For the Lightning, it’s all about the offensive side of the ice. They come into this game averaging 4.1 goals per game.
In this game they need to get out to the fast start and run up the score. If they can get out to a fast start it’s going to get ugly.
Los Angeles Kings
On the other side of this matchup is the Los Angeles Kings who haven’t gotten out to a fast start to the season but they come into this game playing well.
They have won five of the last seven games and a big reason has been the way the defense has been playing. That defense is going to need to be good again in this game.
