The Line: Carolina Hurricanes -140 / Florida Panthers +127 --- Over/Under: 5.5
The Carolina Hurricanes host the Florida Panthers in Tuesday night NHL action.
The Florida Panthers are aiming for two points when the team visits the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday. Florida ended a four game home stand at 1-2-2 after a 5-4, overtime loss to the New York Rangers on Saturday.
The Rangers attack received a pair of tallies from Kevin Shattenkirk including the game winner at 1:08 of the extra session. Rick Nash, Michael Grabner and Nick Holden also lit the lamp for New York while JT Miller added three assists to help Henrik Lundqvist to the victory with his 30 stops.
The Panthers saw Colton Sceviour return from injury to score two times with Vincent Trocheck and Keith Yandle reaching the scoring column. Sceviour completed a three point night with an assist while Michael Haley logged a pair of helpers for Florida. Roberto Luongo returned from injury to give the Panthers 39 saves.
The Carolina Hurricanes are hoping to begin a hot streak when the Florida Panthers pay a visit to PNC Arena Tuesday. Carolina is enduring an 0-2-2 skid following a 2-1 shootout defeat at the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday night.
Scoring was scarce with both goal tenders and defenses taking control from the opening faceoff. The game was scoreless until the Coyotes Clayton Kelller gave his team a 1-0 lead at 11:33 on an assist from Brad Richardson before Jordan Staal lit the lamp with 2:15 remaining in regulation to even the score.
Derek Stepan tallied the game winner in the shootout to make the monster save performance of Antti Ranta a winner for the Arizona. Scott Darling recorded 23 saves to help Hurricanes to a point.
Panthers are 0-4 in their last 4 overall and Panthers are 0-4 in their last 4 when their opponent scores 2 goals or less in their previous game and Panthers are 0-4 in their last 4 Tuesday games. Hurricanes are 0-4 in their last 4 overall and over is 4-0-2 in Hurricanes last 6 vs. Atlantic and over is 4-0 in Hurricanes last 4 after scoring 2 goals or less in their previous game. Over is 2-0-2 in the last 4 meetings and under is 2-0-2 in the last 4 meetings in Carolina and Panthers are 7-2 in the last 9 meetings.
Neither team is playing well at all so something has to give. I’m not sure who is in goal and I’m not sure it matters anyway because I’m not betting this…
