Prediction and betting tips
The Tampa Bay Lightning started the 2022-23 season badly. They have only 12 points in 10 matches. However, they have won five of the last six matches. Victor Hedman will not play this time, which will make Tampa much weaker. Also, Andrei Vasilevskiy showed his worst performance in the season in the last game against the Senators.
The Hurricanes have lost three of the last six matches. Also, two out of three their won matches were finished in overtime. Also, they have been underdogs in two guest matches in the 2022-23 season and lost both. The Carolina Hurricanes have not beaten Tampa in regular time in the last five H2H games played in Amalie Arena. I believe that this match will be finished in favor of the Lightning.
