Ottawa Senators (22-26-2) vs. Tampa Bay Lightning (30-20-5)


Ottawa Senators vs. Tampa Bay Lightning 2/19/24 – As the NHL regular season reaches its crescendo, an exciting matchup awaits on Monday, February 19th between Ottawa Senators and Tampa Bay Lightning at Amalie Arena. While Ottawa have a 22-26-2 record and hope to move up in their standings, Tampa are currently 30-20-5 and look to secure their playoff position through this game which promises exciting action on the ice and plenty of top premium picks for the betting world.


Ottawa Senators, despite their struggles, have displayed flashes of brilliance offensively led by their dynamic trio: Claude Giroux, Tim Stutzle and Brady Tkachuk. Both players with 47 points each are instrumental in setting up plays and scoring, while Tkachuk’s 25 goals demonstrate his finishing abilities. But their scoring capabilities will be tested against Andrei Vasilevskiy’s goaltender abilities who hold onto an astounding.903 save percentage and 2.77 goals against per game average to challenge their scoring capabilities.


Tampa Bay Lightning are led by Nikita Kucherov, Brayden Point and Brandon Hagel – three players who collectively boast an offensive output of 93 points from 36 goals and 57 assists between them – who offer consistent scoring threats on the ice. Point and Hagel add depth to a Lightning offense which boasts one of the strongest scoring units in the league. However, Senators goaltender Joonas Korpisalo must use an impressive save percentage (.887) and 3.42 goals against per game to stop these dynamic offensive forces on defense.

Goaltender Joonas Korpisalo vs. Goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy


Joonas Korpisalo‘s debut as Ottawa Senators goaltender has been marked by both high-volume saves and trying times, reflecting his resilience through any difficulties that he may be encountering. Korpisalo stands tall in net and serves both to indicate their team’s lack of defensive prowess against highly offensive teams like Tampa Bay Lightning; at the same time his height acts as an indicator that they lack defensive prowess against such highly offensive teams as they face against Ottawa. Andrei Vasilevskiy has become an essential piece for Tampa Bay Lightning; providing both reliability and game-turning saves that have given them an advantage against Ottawa’s offense in this matchup.
