The Florida Panthers will meet with the Tampa Bay Lightning in NHL action in Amalie Arena, Tampa, on Saturday, May 22, 2021, at 12:30 PM (EDT). The Florida Panthers seemed to be on their way to being swept by the Tampa Bay Lightning after dropping both games at home and being outplayed around the ice in the first two games of this season. The Panthers were down 5-3 late in the game but came back to win with two unanswered goals in regulation and an overtime goal to pull off the upset. Florida is 2nd at 37-14 in the NL Central Division.

The offense was able to power the rally by scoring on the second and third lines, with Ryan Lomberg, Patric Hornqvist, and Gustav Forsling all scoring in the third period or later to help the team win. The Panthers’ offense led the season, but their defense struggled, allowing 13 goals in the first 3 matches. Though MacKenzie Weegar continued to play well this season, leading the team with 4.4 defensive point shares, the rest of the group struggled, allowing numerous open passing lanes and shots on goal.

  • The total went OVER in 10 of Florida’s last 15 matches.

  • The Florida Panthers are 4-2 SU in their last 6 matches against Tampa Bay.

  • The Florida Panthers are 11-4 SU in their last 15 matches this season.

Florida Panthers vs Tampa Bay Lightning Predictions 5/22/2021

Throughout the season, the Lightning had an excellent defense, allowing just 2.5 goals per game. Unfortunately, the playoffs were different, as they were up against a potent Panthers offense and surrendered 11 goals in the first three matches, including six in the most recent loss. What’s most perplexing is that Andrei Vasilevskiy, who only permits 2.2 goals per game and saves an average of .922 percent of shots, is allowing 3.5 goals per game in this season, and the Panthers are consistently getting the puck past him. Tampa Bay is 3rd at 36-17 in the NL Central Division.

Although the Lightning’s defense struggled, the offense was on fire, with nine of the team’s skaters scoring goals in the series so far. Victor Hedman is the point leader so far, despite not locating the back of the net, is fantastic from the point, distributing 6 assists.

  • The Tampa Bay Rays are 2-4 SU in their last 6 matches.

  • The total went OVER in 13 of Tampa Bay’s last 18 matches against Florida.

  • The Tampa Bay Rays are 2-4 SU in their last 6 matches in the Central Conference.

Florida Panthers vs Tampa Bay Lightning. The NHL pick for this game is the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Panthers were fortunate to win their last game, but their goal-to-shot conversion was far lower than the Lightning. Expect the Panthers to lose this game due to a lack of effective conversions, as the Lightning convert stronger on the shooting in the match. The Tampa Bay Lightning will win to a predicted score of 4-3.
