Tampa Bay Lightning at St. Louis Blues (Tuesday)
The Lightning came into this season hoping to supplant theas Stanley Cup champions, but they've disappointed thus far. Sure, they've won four of their last six games, but losses to the Islanders and Jets are more telling than wins over weak opponents like the Sabres, Rangers, and Devils.
The Blues are too well-coached and disciplined to cater to the Lightning's style of play, so you should back them to beat the Bolts and end a three-game skid. The Lightning have a lot to prove before we can justify taking them at their lofty prices.
Vancouver Canucks at Dallas Stars (Tuesday)
There hasn't been a better or more consistent team in November than the, who've posted a 6-0-1 record since the start of the month. They've done it with stellar defensive hockey, allowing one goal or fewer in four of those games.
