Oddsmakers are going to have a tough go of it coming up with a line for Tuesday’s Florida at Chicago tilt. The Panthers have won 5 in a row – but so have the Blackhawks.
What should give Chicago a slight edge in this matchup is not only the fact they are playing at home, but the Panthers also come in on 0 days rest after a game vs. the Wild on Monday night.
This will also be the last game for both teams until February with the all-star break upcoming. It’s easy to fall into ‘look ahead’ mode in this situation, but having a 6-game win streak heading into the break is something both teams want.
It didn’t look good at times for the Panthers on Monday in St. Paul. Florida need 3 goals in the third period including one with :06 left to get the win. Either way, it was the 5th in the row for Florida who is hanging close in the Atlantic.
It’s going to be an emotional game for both teams on Tuesday as Florida coach Joel Quenneville returns to Chicago for the 1st time since being fired by the Blackhawks last season.
Quenneville has done a great job in his 1st year with the Panthers. The Florida offense has netted at least 4 goals in each game during their current win streak. They now have the #2 scoring offense in the league.
The Panthers did burn up top starter Sergei Bobrovsky vs. Minnesota on Monday. They could use him again with a lot of down time upcoming or turn to Sam Montembeault making just his 2nd start since the end of November.
Chicago players have no hard feelings towards their old coach Quenneville, in fact they have a lot of love for the guy they won 3 Stanley Cup Championships with. The Blackhawks still want a win though to give them 6 straight heading into the all-star break.
The Blackhawks have also ridden a strong offensive game to their impressive run as of late. Chicago has 15 goals in the last three games led by Patrick Kane riding a 9-game point streak.
Another big surprise for the Chicago offense this year has been Dominik Kubalik. The rookie has an astonishing 9 goals in his last 7 games and is a great example of the type of scoring depth the Hawks possess.
Who goes in net for the last time before the break will be a mystery for Chicago. Corey Crawford has allowed 2 goals or less in 4 of 5 appearances while Robin Lehner has an 8-1 record in his last 9.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Panthers are 5-0 last 5 overall
- Panthers are 4-0 last 4 on 0 days rest
- Blackhawks are 5-0 last 5 overall
- Panthers are 1-7 last 8 in Chicago
Free Florida Panthers vs. Chicago Blackhawks NHL Prediction:
Both squads will be commanding public action based on the 5 game win streak that each have going. Florida is at a disadvantage playing on leg two of the back-to-back however, especially with some goaltending questions.
