Panthers vs Red Wings Betting Prediction

Detroit is coming off of a loss in their last game, but they have been one of the hotter teams in the NHL and they will be at home for this game. The Red Wings are 18-9-5 at home, but the Panthers have been great on the road, going 20-8-2. Florida has won nine of their last ten games and they are currently tied with Boston for first in the Atlantic. Detroit has been the better offensive team in this matchup, but Florida’s defense is one of the best in the NHL. I think this game could go either way, but I am going to go with the Red Wings at home.
