The Florida Panthers and Detroit Red Wings meet Friday in NHL action at the Little Caesars Arena.
The Florida Panthers look to stay hot after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Florida Panthers are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 29.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Carter Verhaeghe leads Florida with seven goals, Jonathan Huberdeau has 13 assists and Aleksander Barkov has 48 shots on goal. Defensively, the Florida Panthers are allowing three goals per game and are killing 76.9 percent of their opponents power plays. Chris Driedger has given up 17 goals on 224 shots faced and Sergei Bobrovsky has given up 24 goals on 207 shots.
The Detroit Red Wings need a win after losing 12 of their last 14 games. The Detroit Red Wings are averaging 2.1 goals per game and are scoring on 7.5 percent of their power play opportunities. Tyler Bertuzzi leads Detroit with five goals, Filip Hronek has nine assists and Dylan Larkin has 59 shots on goal. Defensively, the Detroit Red Wings are allowing 3.2 goals per game and are killing 73.5 percent of their opponents power plays. Thomas Greiss has given up 33 goals on 328 shots faced and Jonathan Bernier has allowed 16 goals on 157 shots.
The Panthers are 4-0 in their last 4 road games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The Red Wings are 10-25 in their last 35 home games and 14-55 in their last 69 overall. The over is 4-0 in Panthers last 4 overall. The under is 6-1 in Red Wings last 7 overall. The Panthers are 14-3 in the last 17 meetings in Detroit and 9-1 in the last 10 meetings.
The Florida Panthers are proving more and more that they're legit, as they just took two of three from the Lightning and beat a red hot Hurricanes team. The Panthers have also beaten the Red Wings in three of four meetings already this season. The Detroit Red Wings can't get out of their own way, as the defense has improved slightly, but the offense finds no consistency and they can't take advantage of the power play. I'm not stepping in front of the Panthers and you probably shouldn't either.
