The Panthers are 6-0 in their last 6 road games and 20-6 in their last 26 overall. The Canucks are 1-4 in their last 5 Monday games and 3-7 in their last 10 vs. Atlantic. The Panthers are 2-5-2 in the last 9 meetings in Vancouver and the road team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Panthers are on a historic streak right now and may be the best team in hockey overall. It's impossible to bet against Florida until this team cools off. I'll take the road team for the cheap price. These kids are feeling it.
