Free Tampa Bay Lightning vs. St. Louis Blues NHL Prediction:
The Blues have been able to get the best of Tampa Bay throughout their previous 10 head-to-head matchups with a 7-3-0 record. The over/under has gone 4-6 during the 10-game stretch.
St. Louis has been able to put the puck in the net for an average of 2.50 goals per night during the 10 games while giving up an average of 2.20 to Tampa Bay.
I’m liking the Blues to win at home on Tuesday. No, they aren’t scoring as many goals per game as the Lightning, but they have been stronger on the defensive end of the ice.
Tampa Bay has been spending 58 minutes longer in the penalty box per game and St. Louis has been sharp on power-play opportunities. I think skating a man down hurts the Lightning in this game.
My money is on St. Louis.
