Dallas Stars vs Tampa Bay Lightning 01/15/2022 Betting Odds:
The short road trip is off to a rough start for the Stars. The team got beaten black and blue by the Panthers on Friday, just three days after they dominated Seattle at home. The Florida road trip continues as the Stars are set to play in the second night of a back-to-back at the Amalie Arena to face the Tampa Bay Lightning. Coach Rick Bowness did not mince words as he criticized his players following Friday’s rout. The Stars’ tactician said his team is “very comfortable playing at home and uncomfortable playing on the road.” Heading over to Tampa next, the Stars know that another hostile environment is about to welcome them. Bowness is aware that his team must address their lapses immediately, otherwise, the team must brace for another disaster of a loss.
Players to watch: J. Pavelski C (G 15, A 20, PTS 35), J. Robertson LW (G 13, A 19, PTS 32), R. Hintz LW (G 14, A 12, PTS 26).
Tampa Bay Lightning
The Lightning are eager to build momentum as they continue their chase to reign supreme in their division. Tampa Bay took care of business last time out, defeating Vancouver at home on Thursday, 4-2, to notch their fourth win in five games. The Lightning will welcome the Stars next, and the squad is smelling blood. Aware that the visitors are coming off a forgettable loss at the FLA Live Arena, Tampa Bay will be out to attack jugular. A win at home will be huge for the Lightning before hitting the scheduled three-game road trip where they could finally surpass the Panthers for the top spot in the Atlantic.
Players to watch: S. Stamkos C (G 18, A 27, PTS 45), V. Hedman D (G 7, A 32, PTS 39), A. Killorn LW (G 11, A 24, PTS 35).
