The Tampa Bay Lightning and Nashville Predators will engage in some cross conference play in this match-up. The Tampa Bay Lightning are coming off a 4-6 loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday.

Nikita Kucherov had a big night with 2 goals and 1 assists. It's been a good year so far for Nikita Kucherov, he has 38 points. Tyler Johnson had a great assist night with two helpers.

Andrei Vasilevskiy should start in net for this game. He last played on Tuesday and put together a 0.848 save percentage. Over his last 2 games facing the Nashville Predators, he has gone 0-0-0.

It looks like Pekka Rinne will get the call in this one. In Rinne's latest appearance, he faced 43 shots and allowed 2 goals. It's been a good last 10 games for Pekka Rinne as he has 3 wins and 5 losses with a 3.51 GAA and 0.882 SV%.

Jon Cooper can't be happy with his team's defensive play this season, allowing 30 shots against while generating 30. The Tampa Bay Lightning have been masterful at home, posting a 11-6-2 record. The Nashville Predators have gone 6-9-2 on the road. The Tampa Bay Lightning have gone 0-2 when playing Western-Central opponents this season. The Nashville Predators have gone 9-8 when playing Eastern-Atlantic opponents this season. When facing a team above .500, the Tampa Bay Lightning have gone 5-11. The Tampa Bay Lightning have been godawful when playing against a team with a record above .500, posting 5 wins and 11 losses.

The total here seems a little low. Hammer the over.

    I'm in on the OVER here -- Tampa Bay has score 113 goals over last 39 games but has also let in 111 goas (not good) -- Nashville not as strong with 103 in and 102 let in over 37 games -- neither team is strong on stopping shots so a 6+ goal game looks OK to me -- Tamap coming off a 10 goa game two days ago -- everyone is scoring
