The NHL is back on Thursday as the Tampa Bay Lightning will clash with the Vegas Golden Knights. The Bolts are heading into this game after a solid 1-0 win against the Avalanche. On the other side, the Golden Knights suffered a home loss against the Canucks.
Tampa Bay Lightning Form
The Lightning has been playing very well so far this season. They have now won 5 of their last 6 games and it seems that they are unstoppable. This solid form enabled to move to one point of the first placed Maple Leafs in the Atlantic Division. However, in their last game, their offence was not up to the task as they have only scored one goal against Colorado. Yet, their defence did the job as it kept the Avalanche attacks at bay.
On the offensive side of the game, the Bolts are placed on the 8th spot in the league in scoring, putting in an average of 3.50 goals per game.
On the defensive side of the ice, they are the 3rd best team in the league as they have allowed an average of 2.25 goals per game so far this season.
Vegas Golden Knights Form
The Golden Knights were shocked at their home grounds as they were beaten by the Canucks. They have not been playing well this season and they do not look like the same team that went all the way to the Stanley Cup finals. So far they have 4 wins and 5 defeats and it seems that it will be a tough season so far.
On the offensive side of the game, the Golden Knights have been poor so far as they are placed on the 29th spot in the league in scoring, putting up an average of 2.11 goals per game. On the defensive side of the ice, they are placed on the 7th spot in the league, conceding an average of 2.56 goals per game.
The Bolts have been playing very well so far this season. Could this be their season? The time will tell, but they sure look like the real deal so far. On the other side, the Golden Knights are struggling this season and it seems that they will not be in the mix for a playoff spot this year. Go for the Bolts in this one.
