The Red Hot Lightning Take on the Injury Plagued Ducks

Overview

The Tampa Bay Lightning host the Anaheim Ducks in the fourth of five games at Amalie arena. The Lightning have remained perfect in this home stand. The Ducks come off a 5-2 loss to Nashville on Sunday while the Bolts defeated the Devils 5-2 on the same night. These two clubs have great goaltending from their starters and backups.Both these teams suffer injuries and big ones. Let’s break down both teams for the match up.

 

Tampa Bay Outlook

The Lightning have been lead by Brayden Point and Nikita Kucherov this season. Kucherov was announced as the second star league wide this past week. Point has been on fire and had great production. This game can help Tampa better their power play as Anaheim has had a struggling power play. The power play can also be heavily utilized as Anaheim has also been undisciplined.

Anaheim Outlook

Anaheim has been a struggling team as they’ve been plagued with injuries. The defense has two former Tampa Bay Lightning players Sustr and Dotchin who could both be in the lineup for the game. Their top players have been Getzlaf, Rakell, and Gibson as well as sporadic performances from Aberg. Goaltending has really kept the Ducks afloat this season. With a handful of bad games and bad play there’s lots of speculation in Anaheim on what.could happen as the season progresses.
