Tampa Bay has slid a bit of late but they remain the best in the Atlantic Division and in the NHL. Besides the Lightning, what other betting news is there in the division at this time?
Look Out Below!
After a hot 4-1 start, Detroit has cooled off like the waters of Lake Michigan with an 0-6 nose dive. The Red Wings offense has been about as hearty as the wings at Buffalo Wild Wings with 13 total goals. Detroit has also played into some bad luck or are lacking in coming through in the clutch with three of these defeats beyond regulation and four of their past seven setbacks after in OT or shootouts.
As poor as the Red Wings offense has been, Ottawa’s looks like a Christmas tree with one flashing light on it. During the Senators recent seven-game losing streak they lit the lamp a grand total of nine times. Ottawa missed the text message about scoring being up this season, due in part to more penalties called for hooking and slashing and ranking 27th in power play scoring percentage is a problem for them.
