Tampa Bay Lightning vs Pittsburgh Penguins Hockey Prediction 3-3-17
The Tampa Lightning are a team that would like to pick up the pace, but they may find it’s going to be hard pressed. The good news for the Lightning is their last outing they grabbed the extra point in OT over the horrible Hurricanes. If you can call that good news.
Pittsburgh, on the other hand, has been able to play some dominating games. And even with the recent loss to the Blackhawks, they are a team that is able to bounce back rather quickly from the losses. Newly acquired defenseman Ron Hainsey made his presence known against Chicago. However, the defensive core as a whole is severely depleted.
In the loss to the Blackhawks, 4-1. Pittsburgh allowed Patrick Kane to score a hat trick.

Free NHL Betting Pick: Pittsburgh Penguins
The Penguins are a stronger team than the recent loss would show. Not to mention Crosby had an off night against the Blackhawks. With that being the case, the Penguins should be able to bounce back nicely in this game and pick up a 4-1 win at home.
