The Detroit Red Wings and the Florida Panthers meet in NHL action from the BB&T Center on Tuesday night.
The Detroit Red Wings will look to build off of a 4-1 win over Florida in their last outing. Dylan Larkin leads Detroit in scoring with 9 points including 4 goals and 5 assists while Bobby Ryan, Anthony Mantha and Tyler Bertuzzi each have 7 points with Ryan and Mantha each posting 4 goals and 3 assists while Bertuzzi has 5 goals and a pair of assists. Filip Hronek also has 6 assists for the Red Wings this season. Jonathan Bernier and Thomas Greiss have split the goaltending duties this season for Detroit, with Greiss sporting a brutal 1-9 record with a 3.00 GAA which is actually better than Jonathan Bernier’s who has a 2-1 record with a 3.54 GAA this season.
The Florida Panthers will look to bounce back from their frustrating loss to Detroit last time out. Jonathan Huberdeau leads the Panthers in scoring with 4 goals and 8 assists while Aleksander Barkov has 11 points with 4 goals and 7 helpers. Carter Verhaeghe leads the Panthers with 6 goals as part of his 9 points so far this season while Patric Hornqvist has 5 goals and 3 assists for his 8 points. Keith Yandle’s got 7 points including 5 assists and Aaron Ekblad’s picked up 6 points with 3 goals and 3 assists this season. Chris Driedger’s logged a 3-1 record with a 1.97 GAA in 5 starts this season while Sergei Bobrovsky’s also had 3 wins with a 3.57 GAA this season.
Detroit is 10-43 in their last 53 road games and 13-51 in their last 64 games overall while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games as an underdog. Florida is 5-11 in their last 16 home games and 6-2 in their last 8 games as a favorite while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall. Detroit is 1-8 in the last 9 meetings between these two teams.
Detroit got the better of the Panthers on Tuesday night, but realistically, when’s the last time you ever felt good about Detroit stringing back-to-back wins together? It just doesn’t happen often enough and while the plus money is tempting, sometimes it’s just a matter of common sense. The Panthers are ticked off with how that game went and I expect a fully-fledged bounce back from Florida, one that comes by at least a couple of goals. Give me Florida on the puck line in this one.
