The Detroit Red Wings will travel to the BB&T Center to take on the Florida Panthers as they try to rebound after falling to the Tampa Bay Lightning 6-4.
The road team has won 8 of the previous 11 in this series, a stat the Panthers will look to change after winning a hard fought victory 2-1 against New Jersey in overtime.
Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo had a strong game Thursday night, making 23 saves, two of which were major stops in the last 60 seconds of regulation that led the game to overtime.
He put in a lot of work over the summer rehabbing from hip surgery, and his hard work and effort didn’t go unnoticed in the season opener.
With 2:12 left in the overtime period, Aleksander Barkov was able to score on a one-timer after defenseman Michael Matheson took the puck from Damon Severson of the Devils behind the net.
The Panthers first period goal was scored by Jonathan Marchessault, who was playing on Florida’s top line for injured left-wing Jonathan Huberreau.
Detroit Red Wings
The Red Wings couldn’t have planned a better start for their opening game of the regular season against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Detroit skated and shot their way into an early 2-0 lead in the opening period and were still up as the third period got under way.
But, they were playing the Lightning a team that is difficult to beat on their home ice, especially for Detroit.
Two of the four goals the Wings gave up in the third period happened during Tampa Bay power plays, both for too many men on the ice.
Giving up that many goals so late in the game definitely adds fuel to what is quickly becoming a heated rivalry between these two teams.
The Lightning have eliminated Detroit in the playoffs in each of the last two seasons.
Thomas Vanek, Frans Nielsen, and Mike Green lead the Red Wings with three points each, and Vanek is leading the way with two goals.

Free Detroit Red Wings vs. Florida Panthers NHL Hockey Prediction
This game should low scoring, despite Detroit giving up 6 in their last game. The Panthers do not have near as much fire power as Tampa Bay and will not be as strong with the stick on offense.
The Red Wings showed that they can score on Tampa, but Roberto Luongo isn’t exactly a push over.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Detroit +131
I can’t help it, I’m going with the underdog in this one.
Detroit was able to get off to a great start against Tampa Bay and if the are able to do the same here, I don’t think Florida will be able to get back in it the way the Lightning did.
