There are a lot of exciting inter-conference games waiting for us this NHL season. So Minnesota and Tampa Bay will meet each other. The game of these teams will be held on November 28 at 22:00 Moscow time at the Excel Energy Center. Our portal has also prepared its own version of the forecast for this game for you.

 "Minnesota Wild"

The team's defense has been greatly updated in the offseason, which can play a cruel joke with the "savages" at a distance of a long season. So far, Minnesota looks very confident, often wins, showing a bright attacking game, and goes into the playoff zone. Minnesota has problems in defense, which sometimes leads to offensive defeats, but the attack is beyond praise, as it was in the last game against Winnipeg 7:1.

Tampa Bay Lightning             

Many important players lost the Lightning in the offseason, which significantly weakened the depth of the squad, and undermined reliability and safety margin. After a nondescript start, the lightning has recently begun to gain momentum, but the lack of depth affects stability, which is clearly lacking. The Lightning are now giving out a series of victories, including at home against Minnesota, and Seattle was beaten 3-0 in the last game.

Statistics and figures

  • The last match between these teams ended with a 5-4 victory for Tampa Bay.
  • Minnesota has lost only twice in its last five matches.
  • Tampa Bay has a good streak of three consecutive wins.

Forecast

The favorite in this confrontation looks like Minnesota, which is now in good shape, which we have seen in recent meetings. Tampa Bay is also on the move now and has already beaten the Savages at home recently. I think we are going to have a hard fight, with a lot of abandoned pucks.
