The Tampa Bay Lightning are looking fantastic this season and look to be firm favorites to once again lift Lord Stanley’s Cup, and their next step towards that goal comes this Tuesday against the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena.
Tampa Bay Lightning
The Lightning’s last win over the Detroit Red Wings made it 4 wins on the trot and it does not look like they will be slowing down here against Nashville, as they have the far superior overall roster. This Tampa Bay team is not just getting offensive production from a few sources, as everyone is chipping in with Stamkos, Point, and Hedman all tied with 10 total points so far this season.
This team also has an absolute beast between the pipes in Andrei Vasilevskiy who is a dominant force for this team with incredible statistics or 1.88 in terms of goals against average and .931% in terms of overall save percentage.
The Nashville Predators are really up against it in this spot, as they just recently dropped two games to this Lightning team and there is no real reason to think this game will be much different. The biggest worry here for Nashville is the scoring, as they are only averaging 2.32 goals per game and when you are going up against an elite defense and elite goaltender it seems tough to imagine where the necessary offensive production is going to come from.
Pekka Rinne is a very good goalie who has not been at his best in 2021, but he appears to be their main path to victory here, as he has the ability to pitch a shut-out here and help his team to a big home win.

Free Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Nashville Predators NHL Prediction:
This game does not feel like it is going to be a shootout, as I do not see Tampa going crazy goals-wise in this road spot, and as stated previously I really struggle to see where the offense is going to come from for Nashville.
