A pair of Atlantic Division foes take the ice in South Florida as both the Detroit Red Wings and Florida Panthers play for two important points in the standings.
Detroit Red Wings
The Red Wings finally snapped their Eastern Conference road losing streak after beating the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-1 Thursday night. Before that win, Detroit had lost its last eight road games against Eastern Conference adversaries.
But the Wings were able to pick up two huge points as they remain one point ahead of the Philadelphia Flyers for the 8th and final playoff spot.
Detroit will have its hands full against a Florida Panthers team that has been pretty dominant at home. The Red Wings have struggled badly on the road both offensively and defensively.
In their last nine road games vs. the East, the Red Wings have been outscored 33-17 and are just 1-8 in that span.
The last time the Red Wings played the Panthers on the road, they were destroyed 6-3.
The Panthers picked up two much-needed wins against the Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs respectively, outscoring the two teams 8-2 in the process.
The back-to-back wins helped catapult the Panthers back into 1st place in the Atlantic Division ahead of the Boston Bruins, and the Panthers have to be feeling good about this game.
Florida is 4-1 in its last five home games and is averaging more than 4 goals per game in those contests. The Panthers 2.73 goals per game rank 9th in the NHL, and the ageless wonder Jaromir Jagr has been a main reason why.
The Panthers have also dominated the Atlantic Division this season with a 15-6-1 record.
Roberto Luongo has also played better lately, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. He’ll look to shut down a meager Detroit offense that is averaging fewer than 2.5 goals per game this season.

Free Detroit Red Wings vs. Florida Panthers NHL Hockey Prediction
The Red Wings have played terribly on the road and are allowing far too many shots. The Panthers are one of the most effective shooting teams in the NHL and are scoring at will, especially at home.
They should have no problem taking care of business against a struggling Red Wings team.
