The Florida Panthers got a feel good victory last night in overtime and that offense continues to show up time and time again. The Panthers have won three of the four meetings against the Stars this season. The Dallas Stars have been struggling for much of the season and last nights frustrating loss doesn't do much for the confidence. The Panthers are easily the better team here and not a team you should turn down at these prices. I'll gladly back the Panthers yet again.
