Florida Panthers

At 35-27-4, the Panthers are currently ranked 4th in the Atlantic Division. Unfortunately for Florida, the top-3 teams in the division have been having phenomenal seasons. In fact, the Panthers are a whopping 16-points behind the 3rd-seeded Toronto Maple Leafs. While that difference may seem staggering, the Panthers still have an opportunity to snag a Wild Card berth. Florida will need a strong finish to the year to do so however, since the East is very competitive this year. Right now two Eastern Conference teams, not in the top 3, have more points than the Panthers. Nevertheless, Florida still has time to bridge that gap. A win over Montreal this evening would certainly help. Despite the fact that Florida is 1-2 in their last 3, tonight’s online hockey betting odds are sticking with the Panthers.

Players to Watch: Aleksander Barkov (25 G, 45 A, 70 PTS), Vincent Trocheck (28 G, 38 A, 66 PTS), and Jonathan Huberdeau (23 G, 40 A, 63 PTS).

Montreal Canadiens

The Canadiens slide into this evening’s contest with a 26-34-12 record. This gives them 64-points on the year, which ranks them 5th in the Atlantic. There’s no sense beating around the bush; Montreal will not make this year’s playoffs. This may lead bettors to assume that they have nothing to play for this evening. However, they can still vie to spoil their rival’s night. All in all, this marks the 4th time these two teams have met this year. With the Panthers wining 2 out of the previous three, bettors can expect Florida to come out on top this evening.

Players to Watch: Brendan Gallagher (26 G, 18 A, 44 PTS), Alex Galchenyuk (16 G, 28 A, 44 PTS), and Jonathan Drouin (11 G, 26 A, 37 PTS).
