NHL Thursday Nights on The Ice: Chicago Blackhawks Vs. Tampa Bay Lightning
Two Streaks But Only One Can Continue.
In the second rematch since the Lightning and Blackhawks played in the Stanley Cup finals last year, we find a game featuring the two hottest teams in the league. The Lightning -who were not playing close to the quality of a Stanley Cup contender earlier on in the season - have won 6 streak game and are climbing their way up the Eastern conference standings. The Blackhawks are the hottest team in the NHL - having won 12 straight and making a strong case for being the best team in the league and a Stanley Cup favourite mid way through the season.
Chicago Blackhawks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning
Even though the Blackhawks are the hottest team in the league right now, the Lightning come into Thursday as the favourite at -118 and are a good bet to end Chicago's streak at twelve. The last meeting between the two teams was a 1-0 win by the Blackhawks back in October. Much has changed in the last three months - except the fact Tampa Bay is still looking to get some revenge for their Stanley Cup defeat. The Lightning will look for some strong goaltending and productive from their first line to beat Chicago in a - likely - low scoring affair.
Pick: Tampa Bay
