Panthers vs. Hurricanes Prediction

I’m on the Panthers here. I went back and forth on this game, and I think you’re really splitting hairs. That being said, the Panthers have won 5 of the last 6 meetings going back to last year’s playoff sweep, and we’re getting plus/even money with one of the hottest teams in the NHL and one of the best teams in the NHL. And as well as Carolina plays at home, you could argue that Florida’s played as well if not better on the road this season. Give me Florida and the value here.
