Situational Slaughter - Rickenbach NHL Rotation #28 Tuesday 10* Top Play Pittsburgh Penguins Money Line (-) vs Tampa Bay Lightning @ 7:05 ET - The Lightning are a great team and I have plenty of respect for the Bolts as well as Tampa Bay goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy. However, this is a very tough spot for them. Tampa is off a revenge win over the Blue Jackets last night. Make no mistake about it, that was not just a normal revenge game either! Columbus had swept the Lightning out of the playoffs last spring after Tampa Bay had just delivered one of the best regular season performances ever in NHL history. Suffice to say, last night's Bolts win was huge. That said, no matter how strong a team is in terms of mental strength and maintaining an even keel, the Lightning are going to struggle to match Pittsburgh's intensity here. The Penguins are hungry for revenge and looking to add to a 19-5-3 home record this season! The Pens have been off since a Saturday win at Florida while the Bolts will be playing their 3rd game since Saturday and in a different city for the 3rd time in 3 games (Saturday's game was in Tampa). Now on the road again in a back to back the Lightning also could still be without Steven Stamkos. Look for the Penguins to get their revenge in what is an ideal situation for it. The home team has won 4 straight in match-ups between these teams and the Penguins are happy to get their shot at hosting the Lightning as each of the last 3 meetings have been at Tampa Bay. The Pens are 4-0 this season when they enter a game having played each of their 3 prior games on the road. 10* PITTSBURGH
