Shane’s Free Pick
The Panthers offense was elite on Thursday scoring nine goals, and they are going to continue that success here. The Devils in the last game gave up four goals and they are going to struggle again in this game. I do expect the Devils offense to find success though, and this game is going to be a shootout. Back the over to cash.
