Thursday night, February 7th brings you NHL hockey from the Sunshine State, as the Pittsburgh Penguins face off against the Florida Panthers live from the BB&T Center. Pittsburgh is comfortably sitting in a playoff position heading into this game, while the Panthers definitely have some catching up to do if they want to join the post season party.
The Penguins have struggled a bit coming back into action after the All-Star break, winners of only two out of their last five games. After giving up 6 plus goals two games in a row last month, the defense has shaped up and allowed only an average of 2.33 goals per game over their last three games.
LW Jake Guentzel leads the Penguins with 26 goals so far on the year while C Sidney Crosby is their overall points leader with 23 goals and 38 assists. Projected starting goalie Casey DeSmith comes in with a 13-9-4 record with a 2.69 GAA and a .918 save percentage.
The Panthers have been playing some really good hockey of late, winners of four out of their last five games, not counting Tuesday nights showdown with St. Louis, and have taken down some pretty stiff competition beating Nashville, Toronto, Vegas and San Jose during that stretch.
LW Mike Hoffman leads this Florida team with 24 goals on the year, while their leading points scorer is LW Jonathan Huberdeau who has 13 goals and 37 assists for 50 points. Projected starting goalie James Reimer comes in with a 10-8-5 record with a 3.06 GAA and a .900 save percentage.

Free Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Florida Panthers NHL Prediction:
This is a tough one to call. Florida is the team on the hot streak right now, but Pittsburgh is definitely the better team. My gut says ride the hot team in this one. The Panthers are still a ways out of the playoffs, but are still in the hunt for sure. A win here would push them even deeper into the mix.
Take Florida to win this one at home and inch closer to that second Wild Card spot in the East.
