NHL Pick Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Boston Bruins Tuesday 4/03/2018


Tampa Bay Lightning (-150) v Boston Bruins (+125)

The Tampa Bay Lightning meet the Boston Bruins at the Amalie Arena on Tuesday evening in a clash between the top two teams in the Atlantic Division and two of the Stanley Cup betting favorites.

Lightning, having led the overall NHL league standings for much of the season, have lost four of their last five games.  The Bruins form has also been somewhat hit and miss of late, with six defeats in their last 12 matches.

Lightning do retain the NHL’s highest goals per game ratio at 3.5, but their defensive record isn’t as impressive.  For their part, the Bruins have the second best offensive record and the third best defensive stats. However, we’ll go with home advantage in this one.

Pick: Tampa Bay Lightning (-150)
