2. Tampa Bay Lightning

Previous: No 1

Yep, that just happened.  The Tampa Bay Lightning are not the hottest team in the NHL right now.  Yes, they did go 11-2 in the month of December.  They also have four players averaging over a point a game in their last 10 games: Nikita Kucherov (16 points), Tyler Johnson (13 points), Victor Hedman (12 points) and Brayden Point (12 points). Andrei Vasilevskiy has been dominant in net for Tampa Bay, going 7-1-0 with a .946/1.50 .GAA slashline 3 shutouts. The Lightning will start a four-game road trip tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
