NHL Game Preview: Penguins vs Lightning
The Bolts (46-25-11) may not have been to the big dance in nearly five years but some of their key players are playoff hardened and a few have championship rings they can show off as well.
Despite the injuries to Crosby and Malkin, the Pens (49-25-8) are a very solid team that works very hard and have some exceptional players in Jordan Stall, Kris Letang, and goaltender Marc-Andre Fluery.
NHL Betting Lines & Free Pick: Tampa Bay @ Pittsburgh
Tampa Bay has goaltending, good defenseman and some top shelf offensive talent in Lecavalier, St. Louis, and Stamkos. For Stamkos it is his first chance to shine in the post season and like most star players, he will be looking to maximize the opportunity.
