The Tampa Bay Lightning was able to get this road trip back on track yesterday afternoon with a 4-2 win over Jamie Benn and the Dallas Stars. Unfortunately, there is no time to celebrate in Tampa Bay. Tonight, the Lightning hit the ice once again to take on Gabriel Landeskog and the Colorado Avalanche.
The Bolts are definitely going to need their “A” game for this encounter. The Avalanche are undoubtedly one of the top teams in the National Hockey League right now. They are currently in 6th place in the league with a whopping 81 points.
The Avs also have a very strong Power Play. We all know that the Bolts tend to fall victim, whether intentional or not, to their fair share of penalties. This means that they are either going to have to take extra care to stay out of the box, or the Penalty Kill squad has to be on their game.
This is the road ahead is definitely going to be a tough one, but if there is anyone who is up to the task, it is the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Here is all the information you’ll need to make sure you don’t miss a moment of the action tonight when the Lightning go head-to-head with the Colorado Avalanche.
