Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach NHL Free Pick Tampa Bay Lightning Puck Line -1.5 goals (+) vs Arizona Coyotes @ 7:35 ET – The Lightning have plenty of motivation here. With a win Monday over the Coyotes, Tampa Bay can clinch the Atlantic Division as well as wrap up the home ice advantage for the entire post season. Additionally, the Bolts were embarrassed 7 to 1 at Arizona very early this season. The last time these teams met in Tampa, the Coyotes also got the win: 4-1 final. That said, the Lightning are not only seeking revenge here, they also are motivated by the standings and by the fact that Arizona beat them by a combined score of 11 to 2 in the last two meetings. What that means it that the Bolts, the best team in the league, will not take their foot off the gas in this one. That said, the opportunity to have the Lighting at no juice and lay the 1.5 goals is a great opportunity. Look for TB to win this one by 2 or more goals and lock up everything for the upcoming post season! The Coyotes are off a loss by just a 1-goal margin but, prior to that, Arizona’s last 6 defeats all came by a margin of 2 or more goals. 10 of the last 15 Lightning wins have come by a margin of 2 or more goals. Look for a home blowout here. Free Pick TAMPA BAY Puck Line -1.5 goals
