The Florida Panthers are enjoying their new lofty position – four points out of first place in the Atlantic Division – and look to continue the rise when they host the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday night.
Anaheim has cooled off considerably after starting the season with six wins in eight contests, losing six of its last seven (1-4-2) following a 5-2 setback at Washington on Monday.
One thing that sticks out to me is that this is a game of opposing power plays. The Panthers entered Wednesday fourth in the league on the power play and the Ducks were 30th after going 3-for-29 in the last 10 games.
This one looks to be all Panthers at first glance, can they beat the spread?
Anaheim allowed 28 goals in the last seven games and it might have been worse if not for goalie John Gibson (7-10-0, .913 save percentage), who has been victimized for 18 tallies in his last four losses.
Their offense has dried up as well, center Adam Henrique has yet to score a goal this month after registering eight in 14 games during October.
Anaheim LW Nick Ritchie is two points from 100 for his career, but has been kept off the scoresheet in five straight games.
John Gibson will likely get the start for Anaheim in this one. His stats on the season are 7-10-0 W-L | 2.9 GAA | 0.913 SV% | 0 SO
The Panthers are coming into this one hot. They have won four of the last five games after knocking off Philadelphia 5-2 on Tuesday. Their last victory against the Flyers ended a stretch of six consecutive one-goal contests (3-2-1) and improved their home record to 5-2-2.
the Panthers must continue that trend as they try to snap a three-game losing streak against the Ducks. In their last game, Barkov scored his 142nd career goal, tied with Nathan Horton for fifth in franchise history.
Sergei Bobrovsky will likely get the start for Anaheim in this one. His stats on the season are 8-4-4 W-L | 3.43 GAA | 0.887 SV% | 1 SO
