Whilst Vancouver players have been quarantining and/or practicing during their ten day layoff, the Florida Panthers have been doing the exact opposite, and that’s winning hockey games. The Panthers have played four games in the New Year, winning three of those matchups. They’ve won five of their last six games, and are showing no signs of slowing down. It’s tough to know how the Canucks will play coming out an extended break, so it’s tough to make any picks against the puckline. For this game I’ll be taking the over on the goal total of 6. The Panthers over has cashed in six consecutive games, and with them being the second highest scoring team in the league, I expect that trend to continue. The Canucks should come out with lots of energy, but also have rust to knock off, and that should lead to plenty of goal scoring opportunities. Vancouver’s porous penalty kill could present some easy goal-scoring chances for the Panthers to take advantage of. Trust the trends and take the over.
