Detroit Red Wings vs Tampa Bay Lightning 3/26/22 NHL Picks, Predictions, Odds

The Tampa Bay Lightning and the Detroit Red Wings meet in NHL action from Little Caesars Arena on Saturday afternoon.

The Tampa Bay Lightning will try to snap a three-game losing streak after a 3-2 loss to the Boston Bruins last time out. Steven Stamkos leads the Lightning in scoring with 67 points including a team-high 28 goals along with 39 assists while Victor Hedman also has 62 points with a team-high 45 assists as well this season. Alex Killorn has 49 points with 19 goals and 30 assists for the Bolts this season. Andrei Vaslievskiy has seen the bulk of the workload between the pipes for Tampa Bay this season, posting a record of 32-14-4 with a 2.39 GAA and a .920 save percentage on the year.

The Detroit Red Wings will try to find some consistency after alternating wins and losses in each of their last five games following a 5-2 loss to Detroit last time out. Dylan Larkin leads Detroit in scoring with 61 points including a team-high 27 goals while Tyler Bertuzzi has 53 points with 25 goals this season. Lucas Raymond has 48 points with 20 goals and 28 apples. Moritz Seider also has 37 assists so far this season. Alex Nedeljkovic is 17-19-6 with a 3.18 GAA and a .904 save percentage in goal for Detroit while Thomas Greiss is 8-11-1 with a 3.79 GAA and an .885 save percentage this season.

Tampa Bay is 41-18 in their last 59 games as a favorite and 2-5 in their last 7 road games while the under is 7-0 in their last 7 games overall. Detroit is 2-10 in their last 12 games as a home underdog and 59-128 in their last 187 games overall while the over is 17-5 in their last 22 home games.

I get the case to be made either way here, but truth be told, while the Lightning have had their fair share of issues, they’re far and away the better team in this one and should have no issue winning this one against a Red Wings team that’s having issues stringing wins together regardless of where they’re playing. I look for Tampa Bay to get the job done on the -1.5 puck line here.
