The Vegas Golden Knights and plus money is always worth a look. However, the Florida Panthers have been a buzz saw at home dating back to last year, they’re playing their best hockey right now, and they need to keep piling up the points if they’re going to sneak into the playoffs. Must win games for the Panthers. I’ll lay the cheap juice with the home team.
