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 seven of their last eight games.

Blake Coleman leads New Jersey with 21 goals, Nikita Gusev has 22 assists and P.K. Subban has 130 shots on goal.

Louis Domingue has given up 34 goals on 297 shots faced and Mackenzie Blackwood has allowed 104 goals on 1,162 shots. The New Jersey Devils have allowed zero goals in their last two games.
The Panthers are 5-1 in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest, 5-2 in their last 7 road games and 1-5 in their last 6 Tuesday games. The Devils are 30-61 in their last 91 games as an underdog, 7-19 in their last 26 Tuesday games and 4-11 in their last 15 home games. The under is 4-1 in Panthers last 5 vs. Eastern Conference. The over is 17-8-1 in Devils last 26 Tuesday games. The Panthers are 4-10 in the last 14 meetings in New Jersey and 9-3 in the last 12 meetings. The favorite is 19-7 in the last 26 meetings. The home team is 19-7 in the last 26 meetings. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in New Jersey.
The Florida Panthers are on the end of a back to back, but they need a win here to stop the bleeding and keep their playoff hopes alive. The Panthers have won seven of the last 10 meetings against the Devils, and that includes three of their last five tries in New Jersey. The New Jersey Devils are in a bit of a funk right now and have been more than beatable on their home ice. The Florida Panthers need to come out of this game with two points. I'll back the desperate team.
