This is a 10* on TAMPA BAY

This game will determine who gets the 1-seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. We’re still waiting on an official start time for the game, but that doesn’t impact the play at all. We’re backing the Lightning here as they look to be the 1-seed for the third year in a row. Going back to before the shutdown, Philadelphia was among the hottest teams in the league. They’d won 9 of 10 and came out and beat Boston and Washington by scores of 4-1 and 3-1. Tampa Bay has wins over those same two teams, both by 3-2 margins. A nice little edge here for the Lightning is that they last played on Wednesday while the Flyers last played Thursday. Another edge for the Lightning is that they have owned the Flyers the last couple seasons, taking seven in a row. TB has scored five or more goals in all but one of those seven wins. Still concerning to us is the fact the Flyers gave up more goals than they allowed this year when playing on the road. Play on TAMPA BAY
