The Panthers come into this evening’s matchup with their head held high after picking up a solid 2-0 win over the Montreal Canadiens last night. Nevertheless, Florida is 2-2 in their last 4 matchups. If the Panthers are serious about getting that Wild Card berth, they’ll need to find better results in the coming weeks. Especially since one of those losses was a 5-3 deficit to the Ottawa Senators a few nights ago. All in all, the Panthers are 1-1 vs. Ottawa this season, so they have a 50-50 shot tonight. However, considering the Senators’ poor ranking, it’s safe to say that the Senators have more to play for this evening. Not only that, Florida enters as tonight’s pairing as the NHL hockey betting favorite.
Players to Watch: Aleksander Barkov (26 G, 45 A, 71 PTS), Vincent Trocheck (28 G, 38 A, 66 PTS), and Jonathan Huberdeau (23 G, 40 A, 63 PTS).
At 26-34-11, the Senators don’t have much of a shot of making this year’s postseason. In fact, the Senators 63-points on the year places them a whopping 75-points behind the division-leading Tampa Bay Lightning. Coming off a conference finals appearance, it’s safe to say that Ottawa is not having the season they were hoping for. Well, at least there’s next year. As for tonight’s matchup, the Senators are outclassed on both sides of the puck. In the end, no matter what Guy Boucher does, the Senators are likely to come out on the losing end.
Players to Watch: Mark Stone (20 G, 42 A, 62 PTS), Erik Karlsson (8 G, 48 A, 56 PTS), and Mike Hoffman (22 G, 29 A, 51 PTS).
