This regular season finale will see the New Jersey Devils meet the Florida Panthers.
These teams have met twice this season, with the home team winning each time.
New Jersey Devils
New Jersey had a terrible season, hence why they will finish 15th out of 16th in the Eastern Conference. All they can do now is end the season on a winning note and start to focus on improving their team.
The Devils had one of the worst offenses this year. They only average 2.7 goals per game and their point leader is Kyle Palmieri, who has just 50 points to show for. Do not expect the Devils to magically improve with it being the last game of the season. Look for New Jersey to continue struggling and have trouble scoring the puck once again.
To go along with their poor offense, the Devils also have had a terrible defense. They allow 3.3 goals per game, which is 26th and could never really get comfortable on the defensive side. They will be matched up with a good offensive team and will have a lot of problems keeping the puck out of the net.
Florida will finish 10th in East, meaning they will be missing the playoffs. They were not a terrible team, but they just did not have what it takes to hang with the better teams.
The Panthers had one of the top 10 scoring teams, averaging 3.2 goals per game. Point leader, Aleksander Barkov, had a great season, scoring 34 goals and racking up 60 assists. He will be the key to the Panthers winning their final game of the year.
Defensively is where the Panthers failed and is a big reason why they will be missing the playoffs. They have allowed 3.3 goals per game, which is 27th in the league. That said, this game could easily be high scoring and may end up being the first to score 4 or 5 goals wins.
