BETTING TRENDS

NY Rangers are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games against Tampa Bay.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of NY Rangers' last 5 games on the road.

Tampa Bay are 7-2 SU in their last 9 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Tampa Bay's last 5 games against NY Rangers.

Prediction

The Lightning responded in the first game at home on this series but the game was close. At the end of the 2nd period the Rangers had the lead 2-1 but the Bolts cameback and scored 2 goals in the 3rd to win the game. I expect a similar game on Tuesday night but the Lightning will get with more confidence this time. Tampa wins.
