The Florida Panthers continued to surprise the hockey world on Thursday, taking a 2-0 lead over the heavily favored Toronto Maple Leafs. Toronto scored two goals in the first six minutes of the game, but Sergei Bobrovsky held the fort for the rest of the game for the Panthers.
Bobrovsky stopped 35 of 37 shots and Florida scored two goals 53 seconds apart early in the second period to lead them to victory. Game 3 of the series is Sunday in Florida.
In the West, the Dallas Stars tied their series 1-1 with the Seattle Kraken. Tyler Seguin and Joe Pavelski both scored their fifth playoff goal to propel the Stars to victory. Jake Oettinger stopped 25 of 27 shots to earn second star honors.
Friday will have just one game on the schedule as Carolina looks to take a 2-0 lead over the New Jersey Devils. Here’s a bet I like for tonight’s game.
Akira Schmid will make less than 29.5 saves at -115.
Like we said in Game 1 of this series, they’re two of the top five driving teams in the league and since both teams are amazing at generating shots, we might see more of a game of chess than a high level game.
Game 1 showed exactly that Carolina, which averages 35 shots per night, had only 23 shots and New Jersey, which averaged 34 shots per night, had only 18. Following this trend, I like Schmid under tonight.
Bets on the last game
Bet on Sergei Bobrovsky to make over 29.5 saves at -125.
Bobrovsky channeled his inside days at the Vezina Trophy and stole Game 2 for the Panthers, making 35 saves on 37 shots and improving our record to 5-2 for the playoffs.
