Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Chicago Blackhawks. The NHL Pick for this contest is Tampa Bay -220. The Blackhawks played well lately and proved that they can handle a stronger team like the Lightning when the team scored 2-0 in the third period but lost game 1 in overtime at 2-3. However, 10 of Chicago’s last 11 games were against a low-par team of Detroit, Dallas, and Columbus with a combined 22-44 record on the year. Moreover, the Blackhawks’ lone outing versus a winning team was against Carolina which they lost to a score of 3-5. Tampa Bay is still the best team here with the hottest goalie in the league as Andrei Vasilevskiy had three successive shutouts and prevented a goal in over 200 minutes. The prediction, Tampa Bay Lightning will win and sweep this two-game series at -220 to a score of 4-2.
