1st Place: Tampa Bay Lightning

What can you say about the Lightning? They have the best sniper in the league in Steven Stamkos and a good goalie in Ben Bishop.

The Lightning are riding a hot streak currently as they have won five of their last six games and eight of their last eleven. Stamkos has seven goals in those last games. They also hold a title the Leafs previously held this season as the highest scoring team in the NHL.

They’re doing all this even with injuries to Matt Carle and Radko Gudas. Just shows you that the Lightning have some of the best depth in the NHL coming up from Syracuse in the NHL.

Next Three Opponents: St. Louis Blues, Dallas Stars, Los Angeles Kings
