Bruins vs Panthers Prediction Breakdown 

We have the two top teams in the Atlantic Division going head to head in this matchup, but Florida will have home ice, where they are 7-1 this season. The Panthers are playing very well right now and their defense has allowed three goals or fewer in seven straight games. Boston is 6-1-2 on the road and only has one regulation loss so far this year. The Bruins are only allowing 2.18 goals against per game this year and they are 90.8% on the penalty kill. This is going to be a great game, but I am going to go with Florida at home in this matchup.
