Tampa vs Philadelphia: prediction for the NHL game
The Lightning go against the Flyers in the National Hockey League on November 24. What to expect from this game? Our answer is in the prediction below.
Tampa Bay Lightning
The Tampa Bay Lightning started a series of home games with a 3:5 defeat to New Jersey. The Lightning were in the lead after the first 40 minutes, but in the third period they made too many mistakes and conceded four goals. Tampa's goaltender Vasilevskiy gave a subpar performance and stopped only 84% of the shots.
In the second home match, the Lightning went against Minnesota. The game was pretty close, and the Lighting once again experienced problems in the third period, allowing the Wild to level the score 40 seconds before the final siren. Nevertheless, Tampa prevailed in the shootout (5:4 SO).
The Philadelphia Flyers played three home games in a row. The Flyers managed only one victory - they got a tough win against Calgary in overtime (2:1 OT). Philadelphia's goalie Hart was confident and saved 97% of the shots. The Flyers also put up a fight against Tampa, but the Lightning were more precise in the shootout.
In the last game, Philadelphia suffered a crushing defeat to Boston (2:5). The defensive line couldn't withhold the onslaught of the Bruins and allowed them to convert too many chances.
Philadelphia scored first in 2 head-to-head games in a row.
In the last 3 head-to-head games, the teams scored in each period.
Tampa are on top form and continue to improve their performance with every game. Philadelphia, on the other hand, don't always do well away from home, so we suggest playing Tampa's victory.
Our prediction - Tampa to win
The two sides usually show high performance in head-to-head games, and only in 2 out of 12 matches they failed to score 6 goals. We predict a high-scoring game here.
Second wager - total over 5.5 goals
