Florida, on the second night of a back-to-back after facing Buffalo, head to the U.S. capital to take on the Washington Capitals in the last game of the season.
Coming off a Saturday game against the Boston Bruins, the Capitals finish their stellar regular season at home against Florida.
This season really did not go as planned for the Florida Panthers. Coaching changes, injuries abound, and poor defense really affected this team and a repeat playoff birth is out of the question now.
The Panthers were poor on both ends of the ice this season, ranking 23rd in the league in goals scored and 24th in goals against.
On the injury front, Roberto Luongo won’t play this last game in goal. He is done for the year after suffering a hip injury early in March.
Aleksander Barkov will also sit out the final game after suffering a lower body injury and defenseman Aaron Ekblad, along with Jussi Jokinen will be out as well.
The Capitals will likely sit some of the top skaters in this game in order to rest up for the first round of the playoffs but don’t expect the team to lay down for the Panthers.
This Capitals team has been wonderful all year, led by Alex Ovechkin and T.J. Oshie.
Oshie has had a stellar year, scoring 33 goals along with 23 assists in 67 games. Over his last five games, he has a goal and two assists.
Ovechkin has 33 goals and 35 assists this season, but has struggled at times to put the puck in the back of the net. Over his last five games, he doesn’t have a single goal but has two assists.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Florida is 1-5 ATS in the last six games
- Washington is 9-1 SU in the last 10 games
