Free NHL Pick For Tonight Mar 6: Senators vs. Lightning
Ottawa Senators (1.83) vs. Tampa Bay Lightning (2.00); Total 5.5
7:35 PM ET starting time for this game.
It seems almost every game this time of the year is a big game and this game is no exception. A few weeks ago the Tampa Bay Lightning were left for dead with no chance of making the playoffs but after going 7-2 in their last 9 games making the playoffs is a strong possibility. Currently the Bolts are just 4 points behind the Jets for 8th in the East and they have 2 games in hand on the Jets. Tampa are coming off back-to-back 4-3 wins over the Rangers and Hurricanes and have now won 4 in a row. The Senators are coming off a 4-2 loss in Florida and have now dropped 2 in a row. With the injury to Anderson goaltending remains a concern for Ottawa. They have plenty of goalies but will anybody be able to get the job done. Lehner was sent down so it looks as though we will see Ben Bishop make his first start in goal for the Sens. Bishop is 4-5-1 with a 2.83 GAA in 13 career appearances in the NHL (all with St. Louis). Who wins?

Senators vs. Lightning Prediction:
First let’s look at the betting line in this game which has got me confused. The Senators are a 1.83 road favorite in this game. It makes no sense to me the Senators are the favorite in this game. The Lightning have some injuries (LeCalavier is out, Hedman is probable) but St. Louis and Stamkos are healthy and firing on all cylinders. The Senators have won all 3 meetings with the Lightning but the Sens are just 6-4 vs. Tampa in their last 10 meetings (not overwhelming). The way I see it the Senators have a ton of questions in between the pipes and are facing a red hot Tampa team (winners of 4 in a row and 7 of 9) who’s offence is clicking. The Senators seem to have lost a bit of their swagger since the Anderson injury. I’ll gladly take the Lightning as the home underdog for 2.00 at Bodog Sportsbook.
