The Chicago Blackhawks and the Florida Panthers meet in NHL action from the BB&T Center on Saturday night.

The Chicago Blackhawks come into this game looking to build on a 4-2 win over the Dallas Stars in their last matchup. Patrick Kane leads Chicago in scoring with 40 points including a team-high 29 assists, as many assists as Alex DeBrincat has points in 2nd with a team-high 15 goals this season. Chicago is averaging 3 goals per game on 30.2 shots per game while boasting a 30.4% power play percentage this season. The Blackhawks are also allowing 3.1 goals per game on 34.5 shots per game which is the most in the NHL. The Blackhawks also have a 72.3% percentage on the penalty kill this season.

The Florida Panthers will look to build on their 5-4 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets last time out. Jonathan Huberdeau leads the Panthers in scoring with 32 points including a team-high 22 assists while Aleksander Barkov has 28 points with 9 goals and 19 assists and Patric Hornqvist leads Florida in goals with 11 goals to match his 11 assists this season.

Chicago is 7-2 in their last 9 road games and 5-2 in their last 7 games as a road underdog while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall. Florida is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall and 7-3 in their last 10 games as a home favorite while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest. Chicago is 1-4 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.

I get why the plus money with Chicago is worth a look as the Blackhawks have been a moneymaker for us this season. However, the Panthers are simply a runaway train right now, and it’s never often that this Panthers team stays down when they falter. The Panthers are just the team in better form right now, winning 4 of their last 5 and I think you have to back them again but to get the price down, I’ll take Florida to win this one in regulation to get it around even money.
