It’s clear that the Tampa Bay Lightning have been the best team in the NHL during the regular season this year; their closest competition trails by 15 points in the standings. However, playoff hockey is a different beast, and the Winnipeg Jets play a hard-nosed style that Tampa should come to expect come the postseason.
Winnipeg are winners of two straight games and have a one-point cushion over the Nashville Predators for first in the Central Division. Blake Wheeler has been on fire of late, including a four-goal game on Sunday against the Blue Jackets. He’ll be called upon to continue that strong play against the NHL’s top-scoring team. Game time is set for 7:30 PM ET.
