There will be fascinating action in the NHL on Tuesday, as two of the sides that have booked their spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs will lock horns. The Tampa Bay Lightning will be looking to end a poor recent run of form, as they come into this game after losing their previous three. They have also lost seven of their last ten in regulation.
However, they remain favorites in the betting for this weekend, as they have accumulated a fine home record throughout this season. At Amalie Arena, they have gone 27-7-5 in the NHL this season, compared to a record of 18-22-1 on the road.
The Toronto Maple Leafs come into this game sitting fourth in the overall Eastern Conference standings. They could yet end the regulation season as high as second in the overall standings. They also come into this game in solid recent form, as they have landed six wins in their last ten.
Meanwhile, they have picked up back-to-back victories coming into this game on the road. Their most recent success was picked up on the road, as they landed a 2-1 victory in Florida over the Panthers on Monday evening.
At the prices available, I would be happy to side with the Leafs landing a victory in their penultimate game of the season. We could see them recording a third straight win.
