The Florida Panthers enter this game ranked 17th in the NHL, rocking a record of 25-16-5 this season. The Panthers are 9-8-3 this season when on the road, about average for this league. Florida has gone 7-3 in their last 10 games, winning three of their games in a row. The Cats are going to need to bring it here tonight to extend their winning streak. The Detroit Red Wings are ranked 31st in the NHL, posting a record of 12-32-3 this year. The Wings enter this game losing two games in a row and have gone 3-7 in their last 10 games. The Red Wings are the home squad tonight, struggling to get anything going and have gone 8-15-1 in their home games tonight. Both of these teams are ready to win, so let the game begin.

Florida Panthers Need Some Steam

The Florida Panthers will need everything they have tonight to get their winning streak to four games. The Panthers are ranked 24th in the NHL in goals allowed per game when on the road. Florida will likely have Sergei Bobrovsky between the pipes tonight. Bob has struggled this season, not getting across the crease fast enough and his blocker has been terrible. Bobrovsky will need to wake up if the Panthers want to succeed this season.

Florida is ranked 9th in the NHL in goals scored per game when away from home ice. Jonathan Huberdeau has been a hero this season, racking up over 60 goals in less than 50 games. Huberdeau has been having a career year and will need to bring it tonight to get the win on the road.

Detroit Red Wings Try to Regroup

The Red Wings enter this game ranked 31st in the NHL in goals scored per game when at home. Dylan Larkin is trying to hold this team together. Larkin is 2nd on this team in points scored and will need to start working with his teammates to find their touch on offense.

Detroit is ranked 30th in the NHL in goals allowed per game when on home ice. Jonathan Bernier should be in net tonight, struggling so far this season mostly due to his lack of support from his skaters. The Red Wings will need to wake up on defense and start supporting their goaltender if they want to win games.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Go with the kitty kats in this game and bet on the Florida Panthers. The Panthers are on a roll, winning three games in a row. Florida has been doing everything right lately, playing up-tempo and controlling the game with their speed and vision. They pass the puck frequently and can be very hard to gameplan against. Detroit has been terrible all season long and that will continue tonight. The Red Wings are 30th  and 31st in the NHL when it comes to goals allowed and goals scored when at home. Those are some frightening stats. Bet on the hot hand, take the Panthers.

Prediction: Florida Panthers

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I would take the under in this game, primarily because the Red Wings are so bad at scoring. Detroit is ranked just 30th in goals scored per game when at home, a good sign for this total going under. On the other hand, the Panthers are good at scoring but this line is high enough to account for their goals. Sergei Bobrovsky has been bad this season but is primed for a good game tonight. On the other side of the ice, Bernier has had a bad year in his own right. With the right defensive help, Bernier could be one of the better goal guards in NHL and will be good enough to keep the total under tonight.

Prediction: Under 6.5
