The Edmonton Oilers and the Florida Panthers meet Monday in Game 2 NHL Stanley Cup Finals action from the Amerant Bank Arena. Here’s an Florida Panthers vs Edmonton Oilers Prediction.

Game One Recap: Florida Draws First Blood

The Florida Panthers took the opener of the series on Saturday by knocking off the Oilers by a final score of 3-0. Carter Verhaeghe opened the scoring for the Panthers just under four minutes into the game with the lone goal of the opening frame before Evan Rodrigues doubled Florida’s advantage 2:16 into the second period. Edmonton outshot Florida 25-12 through the first two periods and 7-6 in the 3rd, but the Oilers wouldn’t be able to break through as Eetu Luostarinen put home an empty-netter to make it 3-0 and to ice the series-opening win for Florida. Sergei Bobrovsky got the win in goal for Florida with a 32-save shutout, while Stuart Skinner took the loss for Edmonton after allowing 2 goals on 17 shots in the defeat.

Florida Panthers vs Edmonton Oilers Prediction

I’m on the Panthers here. I just think that the Panthers have more firepower and have the edge across the board in this series. Edmonton’s going to have the two best players on the ice in McDavid and Draisaitl, but the Panthers have the greater depth throughout the lines after the top-end talent and they also have a significant edge in goaltending and in experience at this level having been in the finals last season. The Panthers are also rock solid at home while the Oilers have been a far better team at home all year long. I’ll roll with Florida to take a 2-0 series lead.
