The Storm Looks to Continue as the Bolts Face the Islanders
By Victor Cabrera
The Bolts look to continue their momentum with a three game winning streak as they host the New York Islanders. Tampa Bay has been impressive in their last few games but can they keep up their winning ways?
Tampa Bay Outlook
The Lightning are the top team in the Atlantic Division as well as the Eastern conference. Despite the injuries to Hedman and Palat the team has been able to maintain its level. The latest news is that Victor Hedman is skating and could be returning soon while Ondrej Palat will continue being out for a few more weeks. Brayden Point has been hot for the Lightning and his play has sparked this team. He leads the team with 19 points. Now let’s look at the lineup
New York Outlook
The Islanders are first in the Metropolitan division. Despite many changes during the offseason the team has been successful so far. Josh Bailey leads this team with 15 points with linemate Anders Lee right behind him having 13 points. This team is dynamic and fast, this should be a good test for the Lightning tonight.
Barzal can be a danger he has great puck control and passing. The defense has to be careful with him when he’s on the ice.
Tonight the fans are in for a great game. For everyone going to Amalie Arena have fun and be safe we hope everyone tunes into the game. For game updates and other news be sure to follow us on Twitter @bay_bolts
