Tampa Bay Lightning
Tampa now do not seem to be an overwhelming force. In two days, this team defeated the best club in League Boston (5:3) and lost to the worst club in the League Detroit (4:5 in shootings). In addition, the Lightning due to injuries lost striker Steven Stamkos and defender Victor Hedman.
Wards of John Cooper look good in the current season, in the first two months of the regular season the game quite bad. Currently, Tampa Bay Lightnings takes the second place in the Eastern Conference, six points behind the leading Boston. The Lightning asset has 92 points, 244 goals scored, 193 missed. In the five last matches of the National Hockey League, the team of John Cooper won three times. On March 9th, Tampa Bay Lightnings played away against this season’s weakest club, Detroit. In that confrontation, the team at the beginning of the third period lost in two goals, but turned the game into overtime. In extra time, the winner was not decided, and Detroit was stronger in the shootout.
Toronto Maple Leafs
The team had three days of rest, and now they need to go out and die against Tampa, the division’s neighbor. The Lightning calmly fall into the playoffs (92 to 69). Moreover, if Toronto will stay in the top three, then just in the first round will play with Tampa. That is, this match can be regarded as a playoff rehearsal.
The Toronto Maple Leafs are not particularly successful in the NHL season, the club often loses points, misses a lot, the fault is all unreliable goalkeepers in the Canadians. At the moment, Maple leafs are in the playoffs, but the situation is very precarious. Now Toronto shares the seventh place of the Eastern Conference with two clubs at once, in the Atlantic Division the team is third. The assets of Sheldon Kif’s wards have 79 points, 236 goals scored, 226 missed.
Now Canadians are in a ptimal playing form, they have lost three matches in the championship, of the last four. On March 7, the Toronto Maple Leafs played away against the Anaheim Ducks club. In that meeting, Maple Leafs did 31 shots on target, but scored just one goal. Ducks were accurate twice, 2:1, the defeat of Toronto, which was the third in a row for the team.
