Florida Panthers Team Facts

  • The Panthers have lost four of their last five games as home favorites.
  • The Panthers have failed to cover the puck line in each of their last eight night games at Amerant Bank Arena.
  • The road team has won the first period in four of the Panthers’ last five games.
  • The ‘Over 1.5 Goals Period 3′ market has hit in 14 of the Panthers’ last 15 games as favorites against Eastern Conference opponents.

New York Islanders Team Facts

  • The underdogs have won each of the Islanders’ last three games.
  • The Islanders have covered the puck line in nine of their last 10 games as underdogs against Atlantic Division opponents.
  • The Islanders have lost the third period in seven of their last eight games.

Islanders vs Panthers prediction

The Panthers are starting to get healthy, so I don’t expect this losing stretch to continue much longer. The Panthers have also been one of the best home teams in the NHL dating back to last season. The Islanders have pretty much watched their season burst into flames, and they’ve been shutout in 3 of their last 8 games. The Panthers have won 7 of the last 10 games against the Islanders, which includes a win on the road a couple of months ago. Give me the Panthers and the PL for max betting value.
