OVERs Aplenty in TB-BOS Series

As all-world centre Steven Stamkos goes, so do the Tampa Bay Lightning. That trend has been extremely obvious as of late, as Stamkos has put together his longest goal-scoring run of the NHL campaign (six) which has seen the Bolts go a perfect 6-0 during that span. Tampa will put that on the line Sunday as they travel to Beantown for a date with the Boston Bruins.

Shark Bites
  • The Bruins are 1-5 in their last 6 vs. a team with a winning record
  • The OVER is 7-3 in the Bruins last 10 overall
  • Lightning are 16-5 in their last 21 overall

Tonight’s affair is a big one as it will snap a tie for second place in the Atlantic Division. Bettors banking on high-scoring tilts have been loving these teams recently. The Bruins have gone OVER in seven of their last 10, while the Lightning are 8-3 O/U in their previous 11.

One area the squads are struggling immensely in is on the power play. Tampa is just 2-for-36 on the power play in their last 10 contests, while the Bruins have converted on only four of 45 chances with the extra man over the past 14.
