Free NHL Proline Picks For January 5, 2012
Tampa Bay Lightning (2.15) vs. Ottawa Senators (1.74); Total 5.5
Remember that game between the Lightning and Flyers when the Lightning refused to forecheck and stayed back in their trap waiting for the Flyers to attack but the Flyers just stayed in their own end with the puck. Well those days are gone for the Tampa Bay Lightning. It just wasn’t working for them and they have taken a more offensive approach to their game. Now they do still trap as most teams do at some point in the game but we are seeing a lot less of it from the Lightning. And there is something else we have been seeing from the Lightning – high scoring games. 12 of the last 15 Tampa Bay Lightning games have gone OVER the total. Plus, the Lightning goaltending continues to be a big issue as evidenced by the 7 spot they gave up to the Leafs in their last game. Will the high scoring Lightning games continue tonight?

Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Ottawa Senators Prediction:
I see no reason tonight’s game does not follow the high scoring trend we have been seeing from the Lightning. Both offenses are clicking. The Lightning have scored 3 or more goals in 4 consecutive games while the Senators have scored 3 or more goals in 3 straight games. Currently the total for this game is 5.5 goals ( 1.80 to the over) at Bodog Sportsbook. I’ll take the Lightning vs. Senators game to go OVER 5.5 goals.
