Tampa Bay Lightning 23-13-4

Tampa Bay “woke up” and began to actively take up the game in the second part of the season and, apparently, wants to break into the leaders. If she does not slow down, and only gets to gain from match to match, then it is quite possible that she will be able to complete the regular part of the championship in the top three teams in the East. “Lightning” developed the series to five victories and defeated such powerful opponents as “Montreal” (5: 4 and 2: 1) and “Florida” (6: 1), showing an excellent game in attack.

Carolina Hurricanes 24-15-2

Carolina shows a high level of hockey throughout the season, and especially among the players on the court Andrei Svechnikov, who is the top scorer of the squad, is noticeable. The team currently has 50 points in its assets and occupies the sixth line of the Eastern Conference. After two victories over “Washington” (6: 4) and “Montreal” (3: 1), “Hurricanes” nevertheless lost in the second leg to “Washington” in a bitter struggle with the score 3: 4. Despite this, the same Svechnikov was noted in two assists.

In our opinion, the fight should be productive, since Carolina on its site is not afraid to move forward, and Tampa, in turn, when it is pressed, also starts to play openly and attack well. The “Hurricanes” have long been unable to beat the “Lightning” in most of the time on their ice, so most likely, the guests will again cling to the points.
