The Line: Philadelphia Flyers -130 / Florida Panthers +118 --- Over/Under: 6.5
The Florida Panthers and Philadelphia Flyers meet Monday in NHL action at the Wells Fargo Center.
The Florida Panthers need a win after losing four of their last five games. The Florida Panthers are averaging 3.5 goals per game and are scoring on 23.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Evgenii Dadonov leads Florida with 23 goals, Jonathan Huberdeau has 49 assists and Mike Hoffman has 155 shots on goal. Defensively, the Florida Panthers are allowing 3.3 goals per game and are killing 77.7 percent of their opponents power plays. Sergei Bobrovsky has given up 129 goals on 1,260 shots faced and Sam Montembeault has allowed 24 goals on 216 shots. The Florida Panthers have allowed three or more goals in 12 of their last 16 games.
The Philadelphia Flyers look to stay hot after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Philadelphia Flyers are averaging 3.1 goals per game and are scoring on 19.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Travis Konecny leads Philadelphia with 18 goals, Sean Couturier has 34 assists and Claude Giroux has 155 shots on goal. Defensively, the Philadelphia Flyers are allowing 2.9 goals per game and are killing 80.8 percent of their opponents power plays. Brian Elliott has given up 71 goals on 714 shots faced and Carter Hart has allowed 74 goals on 781 shots. The Philadelphia Flyers have allowed three or less goals in six of their last nine games.
The Panthers are 16-5 in their last 21 Monday games, 5-2 in their last 7 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The Flyers are 5-0 in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest, 12-4 in their last 16 home games and 5-2 in their last 7 overall. The over is 36-14-3 in Panthers last 53 games playing on 1 days rest. The under is 4-1 in Flyers last 5 home games. The Panthers are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in Philadelphia and 5-1 in the last 6 meetings. The home team is 13-3 in the last 16 meetings. The favorite is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings. The under is 10-3-1 in the last 14 meetings in Philadelphia and 18-8-1 in the last 27 meetings.
The Florida Panthers aren't the same team they entered they entered the All Star break and it looks like that two week vacation has knocked them out of their groove. The Panthers are also back to their horrible defensive ways, and I want nothing to do with them when Bobrovsky is giving up goals left and right. The Philadelphia Flyers have kind of caught fire out of nowhere and have been one of the hotter home teams in the league over the last month. The Florida Panthers have owned the Flyers lately, but I have to side with the home team and the cheap price.
