Boston Bruins vs. Tampa Bay Lightning Free NHL Pick
Boston Bruins -120 vs. Tampa Bay Lightning
No, you aren’t reading this wrong.
I do like the Boston Bruins tonight over Tampa Bay, which is ironic because the Lightning have won me so much money this year. However, the Bruins have proven to be the Lightning’s kryptonite over the years on their home ice. They beat them this year 4-1 already in Boston and were dominating them in Tampa just a couple weeks ago before they blew a 4-1 lead. They are the one team in the playoffs that, in my opinion, can give Tampa Bay fits. They’ve matched them win for win in the closing stretch of months. T
his is a statement game for the Bruins and also a revenge game from the contests two weeks ago where they blew that lead. The Lightning do have an opportunity to match the Detroit Red Wings’ record 62 regular season wins if they win tonight. Boston would like to do all that they can to prevent them from celebrating that record on their home ice. Boston is 3-0 in their last three regular season home games against the Lightning and 4-1 in their last five. Boston is also 12-1 in their last 13 home games. Taking a chance going against what may be the best team in all of hockey, but I like the way Boston matches up with Tampa Bay, not just today, but in the playoffs.
They are, in my opinion, their kryptonite.
Best pick: Boston -120
