Prediction

I truly think this is going to be a playoff atmosphere in Rogers Place tonight, as Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl, Evander Kane and the high powered Oilers look to bury the Steven Stamkos, Nikita Kucherov, Brayden Point and the Lightning on a back to back.

Instead of picking a side in this one, that should come down to the wire, I am going to take the over.

4 of the last 8 matchups between these 2 have gone over and given that the Bolts are skating in fresh off of a back to back, I love for this to turn into a shootout.

The Lightning just scored 5 goals against the Canucks last night, 3 of which from Steven Stamkos, and I expect more of the same again tonight against the subpar Oilers defense.

Give me lots of goals and a fun one in Edmonton tonight!

Best Bet

Over 6.5 (-120)


Player Prop of the Game

Steven Stamkos 3+ SOGs (-184) 1.5 units

I know this is very juiced but Stamkos is on fire right now and he loves playing the Oilers.

He scored his 500th goal last night against the Canucks and went ahead and secured a hat trick along the way on 6 SOGs.

He has hit his SOGs in 7 straight games and 5 straight in the last 5 matchups with the Oilers.

Give me Stammer yet again to have a big night!
