We get one final regular season matchup between a budding rivalry. Tampa is in plan B mode going into the playoffs with the loss of Stamkos, while the Rangers seem poised and ready.
Tampa Bay Lightning
The Stamkos situation in Tampa just went from bad to worse.
It was bad enough when the team was uncertain if he would return next year, but his injury now puts a serious damper on the bolts plans to make an impact filled playoff run.
Tampa comes into this one on little rest and the concern remains on resting up players.
The Rangers head home for the final set of games before they begin their post season hunt. Expectations were high at the beginning of the season, and for the most part, the Rangers have done very well.
New York’s strong play at home all season will be on display Tuesday and should be effective against a decimated visiting squad.

Free Tampa Bay Lightning vs. NY Rangers NHL Hockey Prediction
One player doesn’t make or break a team, especially one as talented as the Lightning, but it was apparent in their lacklustre performce in Brooklyn last night that the team will need some time to adjust.
Tampa had always played well against the Rangers, even at the gardens, but recent play dictates we should see new York be able to control this game from the first puck drop to the final whistle.
