Prediction

The Panthers are the #1 offense in the NHL and are on hot streak winning their last 10 games and scoring almost 5 goals per game while allowing just 2.5. The Red Wings have nothing to play for and they have been dominated by the Panthers. Florida should destroy Detroit at home and there are no reasons to believe they won't. If you want better odds take them -2.
