NHL Hockey

Steven Stamkos and the Tampa Bay Lightning visit the Nashville Predators in a matchup of two of the best regular season teams from last year. Ironically, both came up very short in the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Lightning had the best record in the NHL last season, but were swept by Columbus in the first round of the playoffs. Nashville didn't fare much better, losing to Dallas in six games, also in the first round.
