In another confrontation among the top of the Atlantic Division, the Tampa Bay Lightning (43-21-7) faces the Detroit Red Wings (38-20-11) at Amalie Arena.
The Lightning have had much of the week to rest and regroup and heal since their victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Monday Night. On the other hand, the Red Wings will be playing the flip-side of their second consecutive back-to-back series tonight; the Wings played the Flyers and Penguins last weekend and then ventured to Florida to take on the Panthers and Lightning. They lost tin Sunrise last night.
The Detroit Red Wings and Tampa Bay Lightning engaged in a pretty even back-and-forth game through two periods, but the Lightning found the extra oomph in the third to make the difference in the 3-1 win.
