The projected starting goalie for Winnipeg is Connor Hellebuyck, who is 27-20-2 this season with a 2.63 goals against average and a .918 save percentage.
The Florida Panthers are 33-27-6 this season after they defeated the Chicago Blackhawks in overtime by a score of 4-3 in their last game. Florida out shot Chicago by a total of 43-24 and went 1-4 on the power play in the win. The Florida Panthers are averaging 3.37 goals per game, 3.34 goals against per game, 21.2% on the power play, and 74.2% on the penalty kill.

Winnipeg is 5-1 in their last 6 Wednesday games and 1-7 in their last 8 games. The under is 20-7 in Winnipeg’s last 27 road games. Florida is 5-2 in their last 7 Saturday games and 1-4 in their last 5 games against the Central. The under is 5-0-1 in Florida’s last 6 games. The over is 18-6-4 in these two teams last 28 head to head meetings.
Winnipeg comes into this game really struggling and they have lost seven of their last eight games. Florida has won three of their last four games and they have actually played really good defense in their last few games. The Panthers have an electric offense, but their defense has let them down so many times this season. If Florida can continue to play well in the defensive zone, they are going to have a great chance to make a run this year. I like the Panthers at home.
