No. 18:  Tampa Bay Lightning

Previous:  8th

Season Record:  14-13-2

Tampa Bay has hit quite the glitch lately; they’ve only managed to win one of their last eight games.  Ouch!  To make matters even worse, they fell to the lowly Hurricanes and Canucks earlier this week.

Jonathan Drouin is starting to heat up; he scored two goals in the Lightning’s last game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.  He’s now tallied three goals in the last two games, and six on the season.
