The NHL is back in action on Thursday as the Florida Panthers visit the Ottawa Senators at the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa. The Panthers will be playing this game on no rest as they have just lost the game against the Maple Leafs on Wednesday night. On the other side, the Senators suffered a 4-3 home loss to the Islanders.
Florida Panthers Form
The Panthers were able to catch up with the playoff race thanks to their great form of 20-7 before the loss at the hands of the Maple Leafs on Wednesday night. Losing a game against the poor Senators team will not help them in the quest for a playoff spot. They seriously need to win this game, especially after suffering a loss to the Maple Leafs on Wednesday night. The Panthers away form is 16-21 with an average of 2.73 goals per game and have allowed 3.05 goals per game in those games.
On the offensive side of the game, Florida has been a bit above average as they are ranked 13th in the league in scoring at 3.01 goal per game while converting on 19.0% of their chances. At the defensive side of the game, the Panthers have an average form as they lay on the 19th position in goals allowed, letting in a 2.99 goal per game, while, allowing opponents to convert on 19.1% of their chances.
Ottawa Senators Form
The Ottawa Senators are in the worst form in the league at the moment. The Senators have lost their last six games in a row and they have been outscored by 28-11 during these losses. Ottawa goes into this game after a 4-3 home loss to a struggling Islanders team which exposed how bad season the Senators are having this year. Ottawa home form is 15-24 here at home for the year and they have an average of 3.00 goals per game and while letting a 3.62 goal per game in those games.
On the offensive side of their game, the Senators have been awful and are placed on the 25th position in the league with a score of 2.70 goals per game with a 17% conversion of their chances. At the defensive part of their game, they have also been poor so far as they rank 30th in goals allowed, letting in 3.46 goals per game, while also ranking allowing opponents to convert 24.4% of their chances.
The Senators are playing very bad hockey this season with a bad record of letting in, an average of 4.50 goals per game over their last six defeats. On the other side, the Panthers have been very solid on the offense in the recent games. Before the loss in Toronto on Wednesday night, they have averaged 3.20 goals per game over their last 10 games. Based on that I expect that the Panthers will win this game with plenty of goals scored.
