Preview

The Florida Panthers travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Penguins on Tuesday. These teams have met twice already this season and they're tied 1-1, both games went to overtime.

FLORIDA PANTHERS

The Panthers have 6 of their last 7 games and are 15-13 on the road this season. They have a 41-13-6 record overall and are now 1st in the Atlantic. Florida beat the Sharks 3-2 last tuesday. 

Barkov leads the Panthers with 26 goals and has 55 points. Justin Huberdeau has 77 pts and 59 assists for Florida.

In their last 10 games the Panthers are 6-4, averaging 4.1 goals, 7.4 assists, 3.9 penalties and 8.4 penalty minutes while giving up 3 goals per game with an .890 save percentage.

LAS VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS

The Golden Knights are 32-26-4 overall and 16-16 at home ranking #4 in the Pacific Division. For the first time in the season they have lost 5 straight games.

Jonathan Marchessault leads the Golden Knights with 25 goals, adding 22 assists and totaling 47 points. Jack Eichel has four goals and two assists over the last 10 games for Vegas.

In their last 10 games the Penguins are 3-7 averaging 2.8 goals, 4.1 assists, 3.3 penalties and 8.3 penalty minutes while giving up 3.3 goals per game with an .885 save percentage.

BETTING TRENDS

Florida are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games.

Florida are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games on the road.

Vegas are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Vegas' last 6 games at home.

Prediction

The Panthers are on a winning streak and are scoring over 4 goals per game in their last 10 games. The Golden Knights are on a losing streak but they're .500 at home with a 16-16 record. I'm really tempted to take the Golden Knights at home but with the Panthers hot offense I think the safest bet is the over.

PICK: Over 6.5 (-115)
