It’s an Eastern conference showdown on Saturday night in Florida. The Washington Capitals travel to take on the Tampa Bay Lightning.
This is the third meeting of the year between the two teams. Each team has won the previous match up on their home ice.
The Washington Capitals have really struggled as of late. They come into this game having lost four of their last five games. Their only win in that time was a 4-2 victory over the Minnesota Wild.
For the Capitals to win, they need to get better play out of the defense, and the goal tending. They have been giving up way too many goals as of late.
Tampa Bay Lightning
The Tampa Bay Lightning have been playing much better hockey as of late.
They come into this game having won seven of their last ten games. In their last game however they really struggled, giving up five goals to the Leafs, and not scoring any of their own.
One thing to really watch in this game is the injuries. The Lightning are going to be without five of their regular forwards including Steven Stamkos.
Some of the lower line guys are really going to need to step up in this game to pull out a win.
NHL Betting Trends:
