NHL Odds: Red-Hot Panthers vs Rangers

The Florida Panthers are looking like a team that will never lose again. That’s obviously a stretch, but the Panthers enter Saturday’s home tilt with the New York Rangers seeking their eighth straight victory, which would be a franchise record.

Shark Bites
  • The Rangers are 1-8 in their last 9 road games.
  • The Panthers are 5-0 in their last 5 home games.
  • The UNDER is 4-1 in the Panthers last 5 overall.

A big reason for Florida’s success has been the play of veteran goaltender Roberto Luongo. Loungo is riding a personal six-game winning streak while allowing a total of just nine goals during that span.

Just how good has Florida been? The Panthers just completed their most productive month in franchise history on Tuesday, finishing December with 22 points (11-3-0) after a 3-1 victory over Montreal.

One Rangers player who loves facing the Panthers is Rick Nash. In Nash’s 18 career games versus the Sunshine State foes, he’s notched nine goals including a hat trick in the first meeting between the clubs last season.
