WASHINGTON CAPITALS @ TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING PREDICTION

This is the first game for both of these teams as they take part in a round-robin that will determine the final playoff seeding. Both teams are expected to be without key players as star defenseman John Carlson is out for the Capitals and veteran Steven Stamkos misses out for the Lightning. With the pressure off to a degree in this phase of the playoffs, this game could be pretty open and over 5.5 goals is tempting with the Capitals marginally preferred to outscore the Lightning.
