Stadium: BB&T Center (Florida)
Florida confirmed their status as the best team in the NHL at the moment by beating Philadelphia away. Will Joel Quennevilleэs team be able to extend their winning streak by beating Arizona on home ice? Here are a few bets on the upcoming game.Get Your Registration Bonus!
Florida thrash all
The Panthers are unstoppable at the start of the season. After defeating Philadelphia in the previous game, Joel Quenneville's magnificent team won their fifth consecutive victory. Moreover, in 4 of 5 games, Florida were stronger in regulation time.
Last season the Panthers' forwards also were excellent, and this season they have already scored 22 pucks in 5 games. Now the defence is working better, too - only 9 conceded goals at the start of the championship. Much of the credit for that goes to Sergei Bobrovsky. The Russian goalie seems to have finally settled in with Florida. Through four games, Bobrovsky has a 1.99 passer rating, and a phenomenal 94.2 save percentage.
Arizona still can't win
The rebuild is painful for the Coyotes. Andre Torino's team has looked awful so far with five losses in 5 games, four during regular time. Arizona have only 1 point - a 1-0 win away against Buffalo, which they lost 1-2 in a shootout.
In the previous game, Arizona defeated the New York Islanders 0-3 on home ice. Then, also at home, the Coyotes fell to Edmonton 1-5. So over the last two games, it became clear that the revamped team not only has problems with their defence, but also with their offense.
Expert Betting Tips
The prospects of Arizona in the upcoming game are not bright at all. The Coyotes are by far the weakest team in the league and not on par with the NHL. Florida will likely get another solid win, their 6th straight at the start of the season.
The prediction is a convincing win for Florida.
