IT’S GAME DAY.
Today, The Tampa Bay Lightning will attempt to take back the crown against the Nashville Predators after losing 4-1 back on November 1st, 2018. Tampa’s all time record against Nashville is 11-14-2. Tampa Bay, coming off a 6-5 overtime victory against the Flyers Saturday, look to strike strong in Nashville tonight.
The game time for the Bolts strikes off at 8:00 ET. Game will show on FSTN and SunS.
Brayden Point, with 24 points and 14 goals is leading the high scoring Bolts this season while a total of 3 Lightning players are averaging 1 point or more per game including Yanni Gourde at 20 in 20 games. Louis Domingue will be in net tonight who did get an overtime victory against Nashville last year. But based on Pekka Rinne’s rich performance so far this season, it appears that this match will be a strong one. Posting a 1.67 GAA and a .943 SV%, the high scoring lightning with an average of 3.7 goals a game look to put a dent in those stats.
What’s on the line? West Vs East!
While early in the season, the winner of tonight will break the tie for 1st place in the NHL overall standings. Both teams have 29 points in a span of 20 games. 14 wins, 5 loses and 1 OTL, Tampa’s offense vs Nashville’s defense is where the line will have to be drawn. A classic west vs east match is on our way tonight.
Be ready for tonight because this will be one striking game. Go bolts.
