Bruins vs. Lightning Prediction

I’m on the Lightning here. I think it’s just a tough spot even for a top-tier team like the Bruins to face such high-level competition on a back-to-back, especially in two matchups that could be playoff previews. I think this is going to be another competitive effort here, but the Lightning are rested and likely have Vasilevskiy in goal here. I’ll side with Tampa Bay at the coin flip price.
