Betting on the Florida Panthers (+1.5)

Regular Season Record: 42-32-8

The Panthers were denied of a win in Game 1, as they fell prey to Vegas on the road, 5-2. But Florida actually scored first in the series opener with Eric Staal delivering a shorthanded goal in the opening period. However, they went blank on three power-play chances while giving away two power-play goals on seven chances to Vegas. Florida just has to play with more discipline. And even though they had a lot of penalties, the Panthers got away with more total shots than the Golden Knights, 66-63. In any case, the Panthers remain very dangerous. They are 12-2 in their last 14 road games and have won 13 of their last 16 games after just a day of rest.

Betting on the Vegas Golden Knights (-1.5)

Regular Season Record: 51-22-9

The Golden Knights got the job done in Game 1, thanks to their offensive activity and great goaltending from Adin Hill. Although they were outshot, the Golden Knights posted a higher expected goals rate of 59.06 percent along with a superior high-danger shots rate of 67.74 percent. Vegas also showed how resilient it is by answering each Florida goal within just 10 minutes. And then there’s Adin Hill, who earned three-star honors after turning away all but two of the 35 shots on goal made by the Panthers. That’s a big confidence booster for Hill and the Knights, who also blocked a total of 16 shots to just 11 by Florida. The Golden Knights are 5-1 in their last six games after a win.

Writer’s Prediction

The Golden Knights win, 4-3.
