The Tampa Bay Lightning travel to the west coast to take on the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center with puck drop coming at 7:00pm PST.

Tampa Bay is a heavy favorite in this game despite being on the road for this matchup. Anaheim has looked poor thus far this season but a strong showing against a top Eastern Conference team could change things.

The Lighting enter this game 3-3 on the season while the Ducks are in the midst of a four game losing streak after taking their season opener. Anaheim sits at 1-4-1 on the season.

Tampa Bay should look to take advantage of this and generate a ton of scoring opportunities. It has been a struggle on defense for the Ducks so far this season. Going up against a tough team in Tampa Bay, who can score almost at will, presents a real challenge for the Ducks.

Center Steven Stamkos heads up the Lightning with nine points on the season thus far. The star player can change the trajectory of a game rather quickly so Anaheim will need to be mindful of this. Winger Troy Terry leads the Ducks with seven points so far on the early season. Terry is a great scorer who can create his own shot and can put pressure on an opposing defense.

This game has the chance to be a good one despite the records. Anaheim is a much better team on home ice so they will have a fighting chance.

However, I think Tampa Bay may be a little too much for this young Ducks team. Give me the Lightning to win this game by a score of 3-1.
