Tonight’s Pick:
Tampa Bay Lightning @ New York Rangers: LIGHTNING 2.00
Risk: 2 Units | Win: 2 Units (Members Only Pick)
The highest scoring team in the NHL will meet the Rangers 15th overall defense tonight in New York. The Lightning are scoring 3.50 goals per game played overall, leading the league in goals, while the Rangers defense allows 2.61 goals against per game played. When it comes to scoring, the Rangers are 9th overall on offense scoring 2.91 goals per game played. Tampa Bay ranks 14th overall on defense allowing an average of 2.58 goals against per game. The Lightning have won three in a row, outscoring their opponents 10-5. The Rangers managed a pair of victories over the Flyers this weekend, blanking them 3-0 on Friday, and 5-2 on Saturday. Before their back-to-back meetings with the Flyers, the Rangers lost 4-3 to the Tampa Bay Lightning, finding the net with just 19 shots. Ben Bishop is probable for the Lightning tonight and is a perfect 7-0 over his career against the Rangers, with a  .953 SV%. Ryan Callahan has been a nightmare for his former Rangers club, putting up 6 points (4 goals, 2 assists) against the Rangers in 2 games over a 10 day span this season (Callahan would make an excellent selection for your Draft Kings team tonight). During the current 3 game winning streak Callahan, Stamkos and Killorn have combined for a total of 15 points, 7 goals and 8 assists. The Lightning have won each of the past three meetings against the Rangers, outscoring them 11-5. Victor Hedman will be back in the line-up for Tampa Bay tonight and will meet the Rangers for the first time this season as he was sidelined 18 games with a fractured finger. Hedman will be on the top line with Stralman tonight and finished Saturday’s game against Ottawa with a +2 rating. The Lightning have the 3rd best powerplay in the NHL, currently at 24.4%, while the Rangers are 20th overall on the man advantage with a 16.9 PP%. These two clubs are putting up almost identical penalty kill numbers, as the Bolts are 79.7% on the penalty kill (18th), while the Rangers are 16th overall with an 80.0 PK%. Ben Bishop is probable in goal for the Lightning tonight and is 14-3-2 on the season with a 2.27 GAA, a .917 SV%, and a perfect 7-0 career record against the Rangers. Henrik Lundqvist is probable for New York tonight with his record of 9-6-3, 2.57 GAA and a .911 SV%. Take the Lightning as the underdog tonight to defeat the Rangers for a third time this season.
