The Panthers are 6-2 in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The Stars are 1-4 in their last 5 home games and 7-19 in their last 26 overall. The under is 4-1 in Panthers last 5 overall. The over is 7-3-3 in Stars last 13 overall. The favorite is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The home team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Florida Panthers are coming off their worst week of the season, but they're still one of the better teams in the league and have dominated teams with losing records dating back to last season. The Dallas Stars are a club that still struggles to string together winning performances and you have to go back to late January the last time they've won back to back games. The Panthers have also won two of the three meetings against the Stars this season. Give me the Panthers and the cheap price.
