The National Hockey League didn’t expect the ferocious arrival of the Tampa Bay Lightning’s last year. Throughout several weeks of the 2018/19 season, this sporting organization shocked supported by winning 90% of its games. By the end of the two first months, the Lightnings suffered eight defeats. Subsequently, it became clear that the Lightnings were a fierce opposition for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Ultimately, they had their best season in recorded history last year. It concluded with 62 wins and 128-points, with them taking the Stanley Cup Championship.
Most sports analysts are now asking what will come with the 2019/2020 season. Changes to the lineup have altered the defence and offensive lineups for the Tampa Bay Lightnings. This hasn’t stopped them from maintaining a formidable beginning to the 2019 season, already having accumulated 24 Wins in 32 Official Season Matches. They’ve accumulated forty-nine points and stand at the top position for the NHL.
This doesn’t mean that the Lightnings don’t have opposition for the 2020 Stanley Cup. The Boston Bruins and Washington Capital have displayed consistent victories throughout their beginning season. The Bruins and Capitals both have 22 points, which is two below the Lightnings. Small losses could see Tampa Bay losing their top placement in the league. Regardless, it’s already being confirmed by Sports Analysts that the Tampa Bay Lightning’s are serious contenders for the playoffs.
Washington Capitals Could Win
The lineup for the Tampa Bay Lightnings has hardly changed compared to last year. The winning team is a serious contender for the final championship game, with their opponents most likely to be the Washington Capital. Their formidable team includes players like Sydney Crosby, who is infamous for breaking through the best of defences and scoring consecutive goals. Crosby hasn’t lost a Stanley Cup Championship when given the opportunity, which prompts Sports Analysts to believe that he will be the deciding factor for the 2020 Playoffs. However, this is all dependent on if his surrounding team can take this captain to the final series.
