Pick

Boston was able to bounce back from their first loss of the year with a dominating win over the Red Wings, and they will look to start a new winning streak here. Florida has played well in their last five games, but they are only scoring 2.86 goals per game. The Panthers have scored exactly three goals in four straight games. This Boston team plays incredible defense and I think Florida is going to continue to have a hard time scoring. I like the under in this game.
