Bruins vs. Lightning, 4/8/22 NHL Betting Predictions

The Lightning have struggled of late and are taking on a Boston team on Friday night at 7:00 p.m. ET that is 7-3-0-0 over its last 10 games. That said, the Bruins have also struggled to beat the Lightning in previous meetings between the two teams, so what’s the best bet?

Boston Bruins DFS Spin

Linus Ullmark will be in goal for Friday's matchup against Tampa Bay. Ullmark has won his past five starts, including a 20-save performance in Monday's 3-2 overtime victory against Columbus. He has a 22-9-2 record this season with a 2.63 goals-against average and .910 save percentage in 35 appearances.

Tampa Bay Lightning DFS Spin

Nikita Kucherov scored a goal in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Washington Capitals. Kucherov came through with a goal against Ilya Samsonov midway through the first period, but the Lightning would hit intermission trailing 3-2 and would never quite be able to get back for a tie or lead over the remaining two periods of regulation. Overall this season, Kucherov has posted 14 goals and 45 points across 35 games played. A lower-body injury and a trip through the COVID-19 protocol have greatly reduced his number of games played this season.

The Bolts have also won 72 of their last 103 home games, are 110-50 in their last 160 conference matchups and are 38-16 in their last 54 games when favored.
