Tampa Bay lost to St. Louis at home on Wednesday before suffering an overtime defeat Friday at Washington, each by a 4-3 score.
The Lightning also is on a back to back, as they had to face the Capitals on Friday and then host the Hurricanes on Saturday. The Hurricanes went down 3-0 at the end of the first period and were able to put up a fight and score two, but they could not completely come back from their poor first period.
In their last game, the Hurricanes were unable to get their offensive attack going as they were stonewalled by the Nashville defensive zone play. Carolina is top ten in the goals scored and goals allowed, they have proven to be a balanced team, but need to finish games stronger like the one they had against NY. The Lightning has won seven of the last nine meetings but it was the Hurricanes picking up a 4-3 overtime win at home in the first matchup this season on October 6. Nikita Kucherov recorded three assists for the second time this season, but also picked up a penalty that helped set up Ovechkin's goal. I do think that the Lightning has more firepower and they are more unsafe of a team, but I like the over/under on points in this one.

Robin Lehner pulled, Avalanche roll Blackhawks 7-3
"Just missed an empty net a few seconds before, went in the corner, he gave me a little hit and I was just frustrated, I think". He quickly contributed and collected a template for Kadri's first goal, which brought the game together.
Washington has not been quite as dominant lately as it was earlier in the season and while Tampa Bay is having difficulty finding consistent traction, I think it will be properly motivated here and the talent is there on the Lightning roster to win any game. Tampa Bay is 3 on the power play as they convert 31.9 percent of their chances with the man advantage this season.
Lightning: 6-4-0, averaging 4.1 goals, 7.4 assists, 4.4 penalties and 11.8 penalty minutes while allowing 2.7 goals per game with a.912 save percentage. Playing at home, Tampa Bay hopes that they can spark a return to the win column.
The Lightning took a 1-0 lead at 18:50 of the first period when Point scored a power-play goal on a one-timer from the slot off a pass from Kucherov.
Alex Ovechkin tied the game at 3-3 with a power-play goal at 11:36 of the third period. The second period saw the Lightning with a 14-5 edge in shots and a 2-1 edge on the scoreboard to take a 3-1 lead. Sergachev worked his way down to the net and was on the spot for a loose puck to easily deposit 4:28 into the second period. Braden Holtby allowed three goals on 40 shots in the winning effort. Curtis McElhinney is expected to get a start in the contest for the Lightning here.
