Free NHL Proline Picks For December 23, 2011
Tampa Bay Lightning (2.10) vs. Colorado Avalanche (1.83); Total 5.5
The Tampa Bay Lightning continue to struggle and continue to give up goals at an alarming rate. Neither Roloson nor Garon can get anything going in between the pipes for the Lightning. Tampa is coming off a 7-2 loss to the Sharks that saw them fall behind 5-0 in the first period. How bad have the Lightning been? They have just 3 wins in their last 11 games. In their last 5 games the Lightning have allowed 23 goals. It seems as though the Lighting need to score 4-5 goals to win a game which isn’t easy to do. As for the Avalanche they got off to a terrible start to the season but are playing much better these days. The Av’s are coming off a 3-2 win over a good Blues team and have won 4 of their last 5 games. Giguere has been a surprise in goal for the Av’s and will go for his 4th consecutive win tonight.

Lightning vs. Avalanche Prediction:
In goal we have a battle of two veterans Roloson vs. Giguere. Roloson has been awful this season going 6-8 with a ridiculous 3.72 GAA while Giguere has been great for the Av’s going 7-4 with a 1.87 GAA and .931 save%. The Avalanche as a team are playing much better also while panic is starting to rise in Tampa. Currently the Lightning are a 1.77 (-130) favorite at Bodog Sportsbook. I see the Avalanche skating away with the win in this game.
