FLA PanthersDAL Stars @ FLA Panthers
These teams met a week ago with Dallas taking a wild 6-5 shootout victory over Florida. In fact, that was the only loss that the Panthers have suffered in their last 7 games. Florida is the best team in the league on home ice, with a spectacular 19-3-0 record, and the Panthers are 4th in the league in expected goals percentage. They are fueled by their offense, which leads the league in shots per game and is 2nd in goals per game with 3.92.
Dallas has also been playing well, winning 5 of its last 6 games. The Stars are 8th in the league in expected goals against per 60, and are enjoying a standout season from 37-year-old Joe Pavelski. However, the Stars just announced that top forwards Denis Gurianov and Alex Radulov and goalie Braden Holtby were placed in COVID-19 protocols. Furthermore, Dallas has been atrocious on the road this season, with a 4-10-1 record away from Texas. The Panthers should win, but -210 on the regular money line is too expensive of a line. Take the Panthers’ 3-way money line, and back them to continue their hot streak with a win inside 60 minutes.
MIN Wild WinANA Ducks @ MIN Wild
The Anaheim Ducks start a 2-game road trip on Friday when they play the Minnesota Wild. The Ducks have come out of the break playing inconsistent hockey, going 2-4-1 and allowing under 3 goals in a game only twice in that span. The Wild have played only 3 games since the break with their only loss coming on New Year’s Day in the outdoor game, but the wins have come against top teams in the East: the Bruins and the Capitals.
Offensively, the advantage goes to the Wild. Even though both teams are average at applying pressure, both ranking around average in expected goals, the Wild rank 3rd in goals per game, while the Ducks rank 18th. Defensively, both as a team and in net, it is pretty much a wash. The Wild allow less pressure, ranking 10th in expected goals against while the Ducks rank 19th, but the Ducks are better at keeping the puck out of the net. Both normal starting goalies are out for this game, so it will be a battle of the backups. Anthony Stolarz for the Ducks and Kaapo Kahkonen for the Wild are the projected starters, and they are closely ranked in numerous goalie stats. The big swing in this game will be the return of the Wild’s star forward, Kirill Kaprizov. He is good enough to take over the game and expect him to do that against a struggling Ducks team. Take the Wild.

COL Avalanche -1.5ARZ Coyotes @ COL Avalanche
The Arizona Coyotes are in Denver to take on the Colorado Avalanche for a Friday night showdown. No matter how you slice it, this is a tough matchup for the visitors. The Coyotes have the second-fewest amount of points in the NHL, and they are going up against an Avalanche team that is 11-1-2 over their last 14 games. In addition, the Avs boast the league’s highest-scoring offense. Colorado is putting up 4.3 goals per game, and that number increases to 4.76 at home. The Coyotes are giving up the most goals per game in the NHL (3.71), and their offense could have a tough time keeping up.
To make matters even worse for Arizona, Colorado is coming off a hard-fought overtime loss against Nashville. The Avs were called for a too-many-men penalty in overtime, which led to their loss, and they should be keen to get back out on the ice. The Avs are the much better team in this matchup, and they have been lights-out at home, owning a 14-2-1 record at Ball Arena. They also have a bit of extra motivation coming off such a disappointing loss. The odds aren’t great, but it’s tough to put money on the Coyotes in this one. Take the Avs -1.5.
