The Florida Panthers have lost six of their last eight games, the most recent an 8-5 home loss to Tampa Bay. I think they’re in for another tough game here as they host the Columbus Blue Jackets who have won three of their last four games.
Both teams are playing on equal rest, and we can note that Columbus is 16-5 in its last 21 games playing on two days rest while the Panthers are 0-4 in their last four games playing on two days rest.
Sergei Bobrovsky is likely to tend the net for the visitors, and he’s having a strong season going 7-2 with a 1.97 GAA and a .934 save percentage. Bobrovsky is 9-3 with a 1.94 GAA in previous meetings with the Panthers who are likely to turn to James Reimer who is 3-4 with a 3.70 GAA on the year overall and 2-5 with a 3.56 GAA in previous meetings with Columbus.
My free pick is on Columbus Blue Jackets.
