The Penguins' Phil Kessel takes a hit from the Lightning Erik Cernak in the third period Thursday, Nov. 15, 2018.
The Tampa Bay Lightning come to Pittsburgh on Wednesday night with the best record in the Eastern Conference.
They are the easy choice as Stanley Cup front-runners at this point. The Bolts have 76 points. That’s 13 better than anyone else in the conference. The have the best home record, most goals, best power play, and best goal differential in all of hockey.
Aside from that, nothing to worry about for the Penguins tonight.
Pittsburgh native Greg Linnelli is now the game-day host for the Tampa Bay Lightning Radio Network, and host of “Lightning Power Play Live.” He joins me for our Sided.co podcast to tell us why everything has come together so well for Tampa Bay this year and whether they’ll add a big-time target at the trade deadline.
