The Tampa Bay Lightning got back in the win column Tuesday in Pittsburgh and will return home in search of their first victory of the season at St. Pete Times Forum.

The Coyotes are one of two teams without a win and have just one point — a shootout loss in Buffalo on October 16 — but at least they’ll look good in those sweet white Kachina jerseys.

Ugly Start For Coyotes

The Coyotes have the fewest points, the fewest goals and the worst goal differential. They also have the worst team save percentage (.846) and shooting percentage (6.9) — Arizona is sporting an .916 PDO through six games.

Arizona is also in the midst of a four-game Eastern road trip vs. Florida, Tampa Bay, Washington and Carolina.


Less Than Stellar at Home For Lightning

The Lightning have spent much of October reeling, thanks in large part to the Nikita Kucherov injury that the star wing sustained in a win over the Washington Capitals on October 16.

Tampa Bay did picked up its first regulation win in convincing fashion in Pittsburgh on Tuesday, though.

The Lightning will try to get off the schneid at home, where they are 0-2-1 thus far and have been outscored 13-6. That’s the fourth-worst home goals-for percentage in the league.

Lightning vs. Coyotes Pick

It’s not every day that a puck-line bet is minus odds, but this is one of those rare cases and deservedly so.

The Lightning appeared to get right in Pittsburgh, winning 5-1, and should be able to keep the good vibes going and pick up their first win at home.

The Coyotes are quickly falling out of a playoff spot already, and they’ve only played within a goal of their opponent once — that loss to the Sabres.

Hockey is random, but this one feels like free money.

Mash the Lightning.
