The Tampa Bay Lightning and the Pittsburgh Penguins will both be gunning for a victory on Saturday when they meet at PPG Paints Arena.

ABOUT THE LIGHTNING (16-4-2): Stamkos has posted one point in the last three games after recording four against Dallas while Kucherov has matched him with one assist in the same span after scoring 17 times in his first 19 contests of the season. Linemate Vladislav Namestnikov recorded the only goal on Friday to push his season total to 10 – matching his output in 74 games during 2016-17 campaign. Defenseman Jake Dotchin was placed on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury Friday and forward J.T. Brown, who took a stick to the face Wednesday versus Chicago, was scratched against Washington.

ABOUT THE PENGUINS (11-10-3): Second-leading scorer Evgeni Malkin (21 points) missed his second straight game Friday with an upper-body injury, and his status for the contest against the Lightning is uncertain. Phil Kessel scored one of the team’s goals against Boston to push his total to a team-high 27 points while captain Sidney Crosby registered a tally and an assist to give him six points in his last five games. Jake Guentzel has recorded five goals in his last six contests to tie Kessel for the team lead with nine and Carter Rowney returned to the lineup Friday after missing 14 games with a hand injury.

Oddsmakers opened the Penguins as -104-moneyline favorites versus the Lightning, while the game’s total opened at 5.5.

The two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins attempt to snap their three-game losing streak when they host the Eastern Conference-best Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday. The Penguins have won only four of their last 13 games, dropping decisions to Chicago and Vancouver before falling 4-3 to Boston on Friday afternoon as they registered just 20 shots.

“I think everybody could be better,” Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan told reporters. “We need to be better if we’re going to get the results. We need to be more consistent. We can’t show up after the first 20 minutes of the game and expect to win games consistently.” The Penguins will face another angry team Saturday as Tampa Bay has lost two of its last three and will try to avoid its first losing streak of the season after falling 3-1 at Washington on Friday. The Lightning have allowed 10 goals in their last three contests as top scorers Steven Stamkos (36 points) and Nikita Kucherov (17 goals) have cooled off a bit in the past week. “I think we think we’re a little bit better than we are,” Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper told reporters. “There’s a reason we have the record we have – because we’ve worked to get there. I just don’t know if we’re putting in that same kind of effort, that urgency, that determination that got us off to the start.”

Pittsburgh was a 4-3 loser in its last match on the road against the Bruins. They lost as -119 underdogs, while the total score of 7 made winners of OVER bettors.

The Lightning were a 3-1 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Capitals. That made winners of bettors who got Washington at +138 on the moneyline, while the total score (4) was good news for UNDER bettors.
