Edmonton vs Tampa Bay: Oilers and Lightning Own Monday NHL Spotlight

Tampa Bay aims to end their win one lose one trend

Looking for their first two-game winning streak of the season, Tampa Bay is in a good position to do just that tonight. The Lightning (3-1-1) have earned at least a point in four of their five games but have yet to win back to back contests. The Bolts opened a five game road trip with a 4-2 win in Vancouver on Saturday. Now fully healed from a brutal leg injured suffered early last season, Steven Stamkos is back to his All-World form as he has posted seven points in the Lightning’s first five games. Tampa Bay sits tied for third in the NHL with 3.40 goals per game scored and tied for seventh overall in goals allowed at 1.80 per game.

Edmonton remains winless early in the 2014-15 NHL regular season

Carolina and Edmonton are in a race to determine which team will be the last NHL squad to erase the goose egg in their win column. The Oilers (0-4-1) registered their lone point in a 5-4 shootout loss to the Canucks in Vancouver during their second game of the season. It’s been a brutal start for Edmonton as they have been outscored by a 25-11 count over five games. Goaltending and defense is a huge problem in the Alberta Capital as the Oilers are allowing 4.80 goals per game (not counting shootouts) which is good for the worst GAA in the NHL. Edmonton’s top scorer Taylor Hall (4 PTS) sits tied for 67th overall in the league.

Lightning vs Oilers Prediction: Though we don’t see them winning many games, Edmonton has too many young stars to stay winless much longer. That said, we don’t see the goose egg being eliminated against this solid Lightning squad tonight. The Bolts losing top D-Man Victor Hedman Saturday is a concern but we are laying 500 units on the Tampa Bay money line price posted on the Bet365 betting board.
