Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Vegas Golden Knights News, analyzes and selections

Here’s a heavyweight duel: two potential Stanley Cup contenders with a few injuries. Vegas is a lot less stoned than it used to be. Unsurprisingly, they’re still without Jack Eichel and Nolan Patrick, but Mark Stone is now on hand with an upper body injury. However, the Lightning’s injuries are much more severe. Erik Cernak is absent, and Brayden Point and Nikita Kucherov are in the injured reserve.

They are still two powerful teams. The back-to-back champions are third in the Eastern Conference and Vegas second in the West. The Lightning have two straight wins, while the Golden Knights are on a five-game winning streak.

Tampa Bay is eleventh scorer, averaging 3.17 goals per game, and that’s without Kucherov play a game this season. Vegas has been plagued with injury all year but still sits in fourth place, averaging 3.48 goals per game.

These two teams are designed to be successful in the face of adversity, and that is why this showdown is so intriguing. Vegas is on an impressive run right now, winning eight of its last nine games, so we have to ride the hot hand and lean towards the Golden Knights in this contest.

Choices : Moneyline Golden Knights (-118), Over 6 (-102)
