It’s Game Day!
Tonight, The Tampa Bay Lightning head to Detroit to take on the Red Wings at 7:30 ET PM / 4:30 PT PM.
Who Will Win?
The Lightning will go into this game with an overall record of 20-7-1. Their last 10 game standings are currently 8-2-0. They hold a 3W streak after their 5-1 win against the New Jersey Devils where their own Brayden Point had a phenomenal game and achieved his 20th goal of the season and reaching 37 points for the season. Kucherov also had an outstanding game against the Devils scoring 1 goal and 3 assists, bringing him to a 10 game point streak with 42 points. The Lightning also currently have the most power play goals.
The Red Wings currently stand at a record of 12-12-3. In their last 10 games, they have a record of 5-4-1 with a 1L streak after their 2-0 loss to the Colorado Avalanche. While the Red Wings have struggled this season, they have still managed to hold their grand in their conference. Being a third of the way through the season, the Red Wings are knocking on the door of an 8th place playoff spot. Only 5 teams have won more games than the Red Wings have in their last 10 in the Eastern Conference; The Lightning, The Maple Leafs, The Sabres, The Capitals, and The Blue Jackets. Dylan Larkin currently leads the team with 22 points achieving 10 goals and 12 assists this season.
Can the Red Wings end the Lightning’s win streak and come out on top or will the Lighting strike the Red Wings down in Detroit tonight?
