With five games left in the regular season and a playoff spot already clinched, the Tampa Bay Lightning look to head into the postseason on a high note. The Bolts’ recent streak has been bolstered by some X-factors that will be important for a deep run.
Tampa Bay is 6-2-2 in the last 10 as part of the red-hot Atlantic Division. Following a poor performance against Calgary on April 3, the Lightning need to refocus with games against Dallas, Toronto and Philadelphia—teams all fighting for the postseason.
As the Bolts prepare for a playoff run, they will need to keep an eye on these big X-factors.
