Florida Panthers Analysis

Offensively, the Panthers performance has been a wrath as the team continues to be driven by its two main gunners in Matthew Tkachuk and Aleksander Barkov, who has so far produced a total of 19 points in the 18 matches staged. Tkachuk’s hard-hitting style having also demonstrated his ability in playmaking alongside Barkov’s skill in which he was both skilled and a natural leader in the center, Florida became a serious contender. Carter Verhaeghe contributes a significant 18 total points, 10 of them goals proving himself as one of the key components in the team’s offense. The Panthers served as an offense should try to probe the Oilers’ backline which has displayed weaknesses; notably when pressed by the opposition.

Sergei Bobrovsky at defense Florida has played a defensive role well. His save percentage stands at .915 percent with goals against average of 2.08 in 18 games and has thus been very instrumental. Thus, the performance of Bobrovsky who was characteristically quite calm and came up with crucial saves will be crucial to disarming the Oilers and their firepower fronted by Connor McDaid and Leon Draisaitl.

Edmonton Oilers Analysis

The Oilers prodigal offense is led by none other than Connor McDavid, whose 31 points in 19 games show his ability to dole out assists. Assisting him, Leon Draisaitl also puts up 28 points for the Oilers to give Edmonton a dangerous two-headed monster. Their effectiveness at getting through the defense line will challenge the Panthers’ organization and Bobrovsky in particular in goal.

Defensively, Stuart Skinner who plays as the goaltender will have to come up with what it takes. He has a save percentage of 0.897 although the goals against average (GAA) of 2.47 so Skinner inefficient in this series can make a difference. His stand against Florida’s aggressive attacking moves will be instrumental for the Oilers in an effort to get back in this series.

Florida Panthers vs. Edmonton Oilers Against the Spread

Panthers have been a good team of late going by their 4-1 record in their last 5 games but they have not been a good team against the spread in these 5 games going by their 2-3 record as well as their road record where they are 3-5 against the spread. While they are 3-0 ahead in the series their spread performance indicates some alertness.

On the other hand, the Oilers have a record of 3-2 in the last 5 games, and 2-3 as far as spreading records are concerned. Their form in home games suggest the total going OVER in 6 of the last 9 games ,making them a propulsive candidate in the total points category.

Moneyline: Florida Panthers (+110). The Panthers have displayed superior consistency and resilience. Coupled with Edmonton’s shaky goaltending, Florida seems poised to take a commanding 3-0 series lead.
