Tampa Bay Lightning vs Florida Panthers 2/6/2023 Picks, Predictions and Previews

The Tampa Bay Lightning will face off against the Florida Panthers in a highly-anticipated NHL showdown at the FLA Live Arena in FL on Monday, February 6th at 7:00 PM ET. The Bolts are coming off the 2023 Honda NHL All-Star Weekend in strong form, sitting in third place in the Atlantic Division with 65 points from 48 matches, a nine-point lead over the fourth-place Buffalo Sabres. With just two games remaining, Tampa Bay brings a 32-15-1 record into the matchup, riding a three-game unbeaten streak but looking to break a two-game road losing skid. Led by the league’s top scorer, Brayden Point (54 points), and Nikita Kucherov (19 goals, 53 assists), the Lightning will look to continue their dominant play in the current season.

Between the pipes, Andrei Vasilevskiy will take the start, having gone 23-12-1 in 36 starts in the 2017 season with a 2.51 GAA and a .918 save percentage. He brings a strong track record against Florida into the game, boasting a 15-9-1 record with a 2.78 GAA and a .916 save percentage. Kucherov, meanwhile, has been a thorn in the side of the Panthers, totaling 38 points (16 goals, 22 assists) in 29 prior matchups.

  • Tampa Bay is 4-1 SU in their last 5 games with an opponent in the Eastern Conference.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 5 of Tampa Bay’s last 6 games against an opponent in the Atlantic Division.
  • The total remained UNDER in 6 of Tampa Bay’s last 9 games played in February.
