Los Angeles Kings vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Los Angeles Kings (30-19-5) vs Tampa Bay Lightning (37-14-3) 

NHL: Saturday, February 10th, 2018, 7:00 PM ET | Amalie Arena

Line and Odds: Lightning -215 Over/Under: 5.5



Los Angeles (30-19-5) beat the Florida on Friday night 3-1 and look to make it a sweep on the state of Florida today against the Lightning. The Kings have won 3 in a row and 7 out of 9. This was following a 6 game losing streak. Besides the 6 game losing streak the Kings have played really well. They sit in 2nd place behind Vegas in the Pacific Division. The Kings are led by Andrei Kopitar who leads the team in points, goals and assists with 58, 22, and 36 respectively. As a team the rank just 18th in goals scored per game (2.9), but 2nd overall in goals against per game (2.4). Quick and Kuemper have split the last ten games at goal but both have great goals against average. They may not score a ton but the goalies have kept them in many games this year.


Tampa Bay (37-14-3) is currently in first place in the Atlantic Division by 3 points over the Bruins and lead Vegas by 1 point for the best record in the NHL. The Lightning are currently the top scoring team in the NHL at 3.6 goals per game and they have the defense to go with it as they currently rank 6th in goals against at 2.6 per game. They slipped up against Edmonton on Monday but bounced back by beating the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday 5-2. They have won 6 out of their last 8 games. The biggest question for them is can they keep up this torrid pace and stay atop the NHL standings. Nikita Kucherov leads the team in points and goals with 68 and 28 respectively. Steven Stamkos leads the team in assists with 42. Andrei Vasilevskiy has been solid in goal for them all year with just a 2.27 goals against average, along with 7 shutouts. They have looked like the best team this year and look to continue that through the second half of the year.

The Lighting score a lot of goals and the Kings do not give up many goals. So which one will prevail today? Tampa has played well at home, and basically on the road also. The Kings have been playing much better and look for the sweep of Florida tonight. They may surprise me but I see a low scoring game today. I could definitely see a 2-0 or 2-1 game. It this game were in LA, I would pick the Kings. But its in Tampa and I think that is enough for the Lightning to win tonight. Tampa gets the win but in a low scoring game. Take the under and take the Lightning.

Pick: Lightning -215

I always wonder why #LAKings fans belittle and berate Ducks and now Golden Knights fans. After all, outside of the West Coast, LAK fans get lumped in with ANA, ARI, SJS and VGK fans as know-nothing fans. Really counterproductive thinking under the circumstances, IMHO. #NHL

#LAKings have signed defenseman Oscar Fantenberg to a one-year contract extension valued at $650,000 at the #NHL level.

#LAKings fans should read this about one of the behind the scenes people who had brought you game telecasts on @FoxSportsWest for a lot of years now.

“The series isn’t over until you win 4 games, so we haven’t really accomplished anything yet. We’re 1 game away, but that’s what it is, 1 game away."

From #Bolts off-day notebook, Lightning one win from SCF but expect Washington's best. #TBLvsWSH

Stamkos on Ryan Callahan's impact: “He plays the game as honest as you’re going to find. He plays it clean. He plays it hard...He’s just an unbelievable professional. He can change the momentum of a game and he can change a series.” #Bolts #TBLvsWSH

Steven Stamkos on having a chance to clinch ECF in Game 6 Monday: "We know we’re going to get a very desperate team. This has to be our best game as well. I think this group is confident in knowing what to expect coming into these types of games." #Bolts #TBLvsWSH

Johnson was asked if he's surprised by the success of former teammate Jonathan Marchessault w/ Vegas: "I don't know if it really surprises me...I love Marchie. He’s an awesome guy. It’s awesome to see that he got his opportunity and just kind of ran with it." #Bolts

Johnson talking about what Ryan Callahan means to the #Bolts: “I love Cally...He literally does everything. He’s a guy that when you watch play, he just kind of picks everybody up by doing the right thing constantly over and over again, sacrificing so much." #TBLvsWSH
