Game of the Week - Rickenbach NHL Game #53 Sunday 10* Top Play Nashville Predators Money Line (+) @ Tampa Bay Lightning @ 6:05 ET - Beautiful set-up here as the Predators are off of an embarrassing home loss to Buffalo. The Preds were clearly looking ahead to this big game at Tampa Bay as these two teams battle it out for the Presidents Cup as they are both at the top of the standings. Nashville has won 10 of 11 this season when they enter a game off of 3 straight home games. Also, Tampa Bay is off of a big win at the Rangers but of course the Blueshirts are just playing out the string on a disappointing season. The Lightning are in for a much different challenge here and they truly haven't been playing all that well. The Bolts had lost 5 of 8 prior to the win over the Rangers. Also, TB's Andrei Vasilevskiy has allowed 3 or more goals in 15 of his last 21 starts. That pales in comparison to the way Pekka Rinne has been playing. The Predators #1 netminder is coming off of a rare disastrous start versus the Sabres and will certainly respond here. Rinne is on a 22-3-1 run in which he has compiled a 2.02 goals-against average and .934 save percentage those 26 starts. Rinne has an overall record of 41-11-4, with a sparkling 2.25 GAA, fantastic .929 save percentage and his eight shutouts lead the league. The Lightning have lost 9 of their last 17 games versus teams with a winning record. The Preds have won 14 of their last 20 versus teams with a winning record! Also, even though this is a back to back for the Predators, they have won 7 of 10 this season in the 2nd game of a back to back. 10* NASHVILLE
