A pair of teams from the Central Division take the ice in the Music City in search of a victory. The Tampa Bay Lightning is on the road as they travel to face the Nashville Predators Monday night.

The teams met twice in Tampa last week with the Lightning prevailing 4-3 on January 30 and then following that up with a 5-2 victory on February 1 in the most recent matchup between the teams.

Lightning at Predators: Projected starting goalies

Curtis McElhinney (2019-20 stats: 8-7-3, .906 SV%, 2.89 GAA) vs. Juuse Saros (3-3-0, .893 SV%, 3.31 GAA)

McElhinney will relieve starter Andrei Vasilevskiy for the first time this season. The veteran journeyman had an adequate season while making 18 starts as the Lightning’s No. 2 ‘tender last year, but there’s certainly a dropoff from Vasilevskiy.

Saros played one of the games against the Lightning in Tampa and allowed 4 goals on 27 shots in the loss. He started against the Florida Panthers Thursday but was pulled early after allowing 5 goals on just 24 shots. The Preds won 6-5 in overtime, but veteran G Pekka Rinne was credited with the win while stopping all 12 shots he faced in 22:53 of crease time.

Lightning at Predators: Odds, lines, predictions and picks


Predators 3, Lightning 1

Money line (ML)

The PREDATORS (+135) are worth a small investment for the upset victory on home ice. The first head-to-head meeting this season ended in a 4-3 victory for the Lightning, and the Preds will have a much easier time scoring against McElhinney.

The teams rank similarly in Corsi For percentage and percentage of scoring chances at 5-on-5 for the season. Nashville gave up more shot attempts but had more of the full-strength scoring chances in the first head-to-head contest.

Against the spread (ATS)

It’s a little steep, but the PREDATORS +1.5 (-200) can also be backed with 1 goal of insurance in the event of a loss. Saros should come out with a better performance after several days of rest.

The Lightning won each of their last three games by 2 or more goals, but they had gone 2-1-1 in their previous four outings with both victories, including one over the Preds, decided by just a single goal.

Over/Under (O/U)

UNDER 6 (-120) is the best play in this game. Both power-play units are in the bottom half of the league and both teams are in the bottom half in total goals per game.

The teams are a combined 10-9 against the Over/Under.
