A pair of Atlantic Divisional foes drop the puck in Motown as the Red Wings host the Florida Panthers with two early season points on the line.
Detroit Red Wings
The Red Wings are off to a hot start to the new season and have yet to blemish their perfect record inside Joe Louis Arena. Despite their 6-2-0 record, the Red Wings haven’t done anything special as they rank 12th in goals, 18th on the power play and 27th in shots on goal allowed.
Thomas Vanek and Gustav Nyquist are tied for the team lead with eight points apiece, and Darren Helm’s 10 +/- is one of the best marks in the NHL.
But in typical Detroit fashion, the success of the team lives and breathes through the quality of its goaltending. So far, the goaltending has been phenomenal.
Jimmy Howard is expected to get the start in this one as he enters the game 2-0-0 with a 0.50 GAA and an incredible .984 save percentage.
If he’s playing at his highest level, it could be a long night for the Florida Panthers.
It’s been a rough road start for the Florida Panthers as they are still in search of their first win away from Sunrise, Fla.
The Panthers have been a well-rounded team during the early part of the 2016-17 NHL campaign, due in large part to the play of center Jonathan Marchessault and his team-leading 10 points.
The Panthers have an eclectic mixture of young players and wily veterans, including the ageless wonder Jaromir Jagr.
This is a team that is built for regular season success, but I’m not sure they have what it takes to make a deep playoff run.
James Reimer, the former Maple Leaf and Shark, is expected to get the start in between the pipes with Roberto Luongo taking on duties against Buffalo on Saturday.
Reimer hasn’t played well in his first two appearances this year as he enters this game with a 2.90 GAA and a save percentage of only .880.

Free Detroit Red Wings vs. Florida Panthers NHL Hockey Prediction
The Panthers have struggled on the road this season while the Red Wings are undefeated at home. An early season divisional matchup usually means both teams are trying to set the tone for the rest of the year, so look for a similar game between these two foes.
However, it’s hard to bet against the red-hot Red Wings and goaltender Jimmy Howard.
