Boston got the better of Tampa Bay in their 4 meetings last season, winning three of four matches, all decided by just one goal. With the Bruins facing the Florida Panthers on Thursday, the team that knocked them out of the first round of the playoffs last season, I see this game against Tampa as a danger, with their focus being split to their match against Florida.

I will take the short odds and give Tampa a 1.5-goal start, due to these games between the two clubs generally being close low-scoring battles. That is also why I am going to take the Under 6.5 goal game total.

  • Tampa lost by just 1 goal in all three defeats to the Bruins last season.
  • Tampa are 5-2-2 at home this season.
  • 10 of 16 Boston Bruins games have gone Under the game total.
  • The last 3 games between Boston and Tampa Bay have gone Under the game total.

Head to Head 

2023-24 Match Results
This is the first time Boston and Tampa Bay play this season.

2022-23 Season Series
Boston won the series 3-1.

Boston Bruins Form

The Bruins have won 4 of their last 5 games and are on top of the East with a 13-1-2 record from 16 games.

Boston are on track for another record-breaking season, starting 2023-24 with the same amount of points, but just one overtime loss the difference from their 14-2-0 record at the start of the 2022-23 season, when they put together the most successful regular season in NHL history.

David Pastrnak has been miraculously better than he was last year, picking up the slack from a few of the departed Bruins, leading the team with 27 points this season, with 11 coming in the last 5 games.

Boston Bruins Team News

Milan Lucic has been moved to the long-term injury list with an upper-body injury.

Tampa Bay Lightning Form

After dropping 3 straight games, Tampa have steadied and won their last 2 against Chicago 4-2 and Edmonton 6-4.

The loss of starting goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy has hurt the Lightning, with the former Vezina Trophy winner being replaced by Jonas Johansson who has a 0.896 save percentage and is allowing 3.40 goal against per game.

Tampa Bay Lightning Team News

Anthony Cirelli missed Tampa’s last game with an unknown matter and his participation against the Bruins is unlikely.


The Lightning will cover the puck line as underdogs in what is set up to be a low-scoring game.
