Boston Bruins vs. Tampa Bay Lightning: Picks, predictions, odds and player props

We have a potential first round playoff preview between the Boston Bruins and Tampa Bay Lightning tonight on Wednesday Night Hockey, and our friends at Daily Faceoff are on hand with picks and predictions.

What a series that would be. Both teams are entering the final stretch drive playing high end hockey.

Boston Bruins vs. Tampa Bay Lightning prediction

The Lightning are 7-1-2 in their last 10 games. They’ve been led by Nikita Kucherov who has 19 points in his last nine games. Not far behind is Brayden Point with 16 and Steven Stamkos with 14 over the same nine-game stretch.

The Bruins are getting contributions from throughout their lineup, but led by David Pastrnak and Jake DeBrusk who each have 12 points in their last 11 games.

There are two things that might separate these two teams. Firstly, it’s goaltending. Both Linus Ullmark and Jeremy Swayman have had much better seasons than Andrei Vasilevsky in Tampa. We all know what Vasilevsky can do when he is on top of his game, but he just hasn’t played at that level for most of this season. Secondly, the Bruins have dominated this head-to-head matchup. They’re 7-1-2 in their last 10 games against the Lightning, outscoring them 35-24.

Because of that, I think the Bruins are going to come out on top.
