Florida has had an outstanding regular season and could already be celebrating victory. The chasing team still has a theoretical chance to catch up with the Panthers, but the Southerners are in such great shape that it will be very difficult to do. Andrew Brunette's team hasn't lost a point in eight consecutive games, dominating nearly every time. Moreover, the current season Florida has already managed to update several club records, confirming their incredible condition, with which they will try to get to the coveted Stanley Cup.
Winnipeg is still out of the playoff picture. The Jets started the regular season abysmally, finding themselves among the underdogs. But after the change of head coach, they began to improve. In March the Blue and Whites had a nice stretch winning 9 of 12 games which moved closer to the top-8. Alas, they lost four in April, which was their biggest problem. Winnipeg beat Ottawa and Montreal 4:3 and 4:2 in the past two games but that's only good enough for 11th place in the Western Conference standings.

Anton Lundell is a young Finnish forward who spends his debut season in the NHL but immediately began to show impressive results. In 58 games, he has already earned 41 points (16 goals + 25 assists). Now he is the third center forward playing with great partners, so it is worth looking at the bet on a shot by Anton Lundell.
