Jets vs Lightning
Tampa Bay started its 11-day, six-game road trip with an easy 6-3 victory over the Blackhawks on Sunday night. In a dogfight for the Atlantic division crown with the Florida Panthers, the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions have won seven of their past eight games. The Jets were stymied by Igor Shesterkin (45 saves) in a 4-1 loss on Sunday and now have to find a way to beat reigning Conn Smythe winner Andrei Vasilevskiy. It won’t be easy.
Final score prediction: Lightning 3, Jets 1

Wild vs Rangers
Speak of the devil. Shesterkin continues to runaway with the Vezina Trophy, leading the New York Rangers to three straight Ws. And Chris Kreider is still in the hunt for the Rocket Richard after scoring his 37th and 38th goals of the season against Winnipeg. Meanwhile, Minnesota is in the midst of an ice cold stretch with consecutive losses and only two wins in their past 10 contests.
Final score prediction: Rangers 4, Minnesota 2
Blues vs Senators
The Blues could not “Escape from New York”-area with three-straight losses to the Rangers, Islanders and Devils. However, St. Louis is still 6-2-2 in its past 10 contests and the Senators are truly awful with five losses in a row. Ottawa played Vegas tough in a 2-1 defeat on Sunday, giving up a Jack Eichel power-play goal with just 5.2 seconds remaining in the game. Expect a deflated Sens club to come out flat on Tuesday.
Final score prediction: Blues 6, Sens 2

Predators vs Stars
With just a point separating the two Central division teams and the Oilers breathing down both their necks for the last playoff spot in the West, expect a hotly-contested game between Nashville and Dallas on Tuesday night. The Predators embarrassed the Sharks with an 8-0 victory in San Jose on Saturday while the Stars have strung together four straight wins. Dallas has been the more dominant team of late with a 7-2-1 record in their past 10, compared to Nashville’s 4-6-0 mark.
Final score prediction: Dallas 4, Predators 3
