Home Team Dominant Between TB-DET

It’s been a serious case of home-sweet-home between the Lightning and Red Wings as the home team is 8-1 in the last nine games in this matchup, which includes three of the four games in this series so far. With a 3-1 series lead, the Lightning will look to put the Red Wings down tonight at home in Tampa.

Shark Bites
  • Detroit is 1-6 in its last seven games on the road.
  • Detroit is 0-5 in its last five games when playing on the road against Tampa Bay.
  • The Lightning are 4-1 in their last five games with a closing total of 5.0 or less.

The Lightning are the biggest favorite of the day of the four NHL games on the schedule. They opened at -162, and are 8-1 in their last nine games as favorites. As an underdog, Detroit has simply been a team to stay away from as they’re just 2-10 in their last 12 games as dogs.

A major storyline in this series has been Detroit’s inability to get it done on the power play, as they’re a pathetic 1 for 21 with the man advantage. Detroit will really need someone to step up if they hope to get back in this series as no one on the team has more than one goal in the series so far.
