Tampa Bay Lightning vs Colorado Avalanche Prediction, Spread

The Tampa Bay Lightning will take on the Colorado Avalanche on Monday night in what’s looking to be the top NHL game of the week. Tampa Bay enters play with a 10-6-5 record and is in third place in the Atlantic Division. Their play has been down recently, as they have gone 5-3-2 in their last 10 games.

For Colorado, they enter play as the best team in the Central Division, posting 28 points with a 14-6 record. With this being a 2022 Stanley Cup Finals rematch, expect both teams to come out and play even harder than they typically do.

There are some concerns in the back of the net in the early part of the season for the Avalanche. Alexandar Georgiev has allowed 2.95 goals per game, which ranks him 25th. He also only has a .892 save percentage, ranking 38th.

With Nikita Kucherov, Brayden Point, and Steven Stamkos on the offensive side of the puck for Tampa Bay, Colorado could be in for a tough game. Tampa Bay has the best offence in hockey, which is evident by having five players in the top 21 for points. Due to the inconsistency in the net, this seems to be a good time for a potential upset in Colorado.

Florida Panthers vs Toronto Maple Leafs Betting Tips

The Florida Panthers will take on the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday for what could be the potential Eastern Conference Final. The Maple Leafs have struggled a bit recently before starting off the season hot. They enter play at 5-3-2 in their last 10 with two straight losses.

Joseph Woll is a big concern in this game. On the season, he’s 6-5 and has given up 2.92 goals per game with a .910 save percentage. Those both rank in the bottom half of the league. Florida hasn’t been too impressive on the offensive side of the puck, but they do know how to win games and score late when it matters most. 

Sam Reinhart has been the best player for Florida this season, posting 25 points. If he can continue setting up his teammates and putting pucks in the back of the net, it’s a bad outlook on how Woll could look in this game. 

Veteran Sergei Bobrovsky hasn’t been much better, but as we’ve seen in the past, that can flip at any moment. Trust in him instead of Woll. This is a good match-up, but one team hasn’t played significantly better than the other. It makes sense to back the proven goalie in games similar to this one.

Dallas Stars vs Winnipeg Jets Betting Tip

The Winnipeg Jets continue to get better and better and have done so in the past few seasons. With a 12-6-2 start and recently winning five straight games before their loss to the Nashville Predators, the future looks brighter than ever in Winnipeg. That will be put to the test on Tuesday as they take on a Dallas Stars team that has played in the Stanley Cup and Conference Finals in recent years.

With the experience that Dallas has, however, it’s likely their chances come out with this one. This is a Stars team that has been one of the best in hockey throughout the past few years, and some of the recent struggles should have them coming out and playing as hard as they can.

Dallas has given up at least six goals in two of their last four games. If Jake Oettinger can’t figure it out in the back of the net, Dallas won’t be the team that they’re looking to be this season. With Joe Pavelski, Roope Hintz, Wyatt Johnston, and others, this could be an elite team if Oettinger picks it up. Oettinger has proven in years past that he can step it up when needed.

Mark Scheifele and Kyle Connor are worrisome for Winnipeg, they bring just not enough to back them in this spot. Winnipeg is great as a team, but expect an experienced Dallas team to bounce back and get a much-needed win.
