Detroit Red Wings at Florida Panthers NHL Pick (1/27/15)
The loss of Jimmy Howard has not slowed down the Detroit Red Wings as Peter Mrazek has stepped in and played to the Red Wings expectation. But can he keep it up coming into the 2nd half of the NHL season? I mean, maybe he can keep it up in bed I’m not too sure about on the ice.
Detroit has pretty much locked up a playoff spot with their only threat being the Florida Panthers. Florida sits with 47 points and I believe they can make the playoffs if they have a very strong closing to this season. Not saying they will push Detroit out but they can certainly push somebody out. They have been the most overrated team this season and we remember when the New Jersey Devils were flying under the radar and made it to the Stanley Cup Finals.
This game tonight in my opinion will have a playoff type atmosphere and both teams know it. Regardless of how many fans will be in attendance this game is going to be one you as a hockey fan needs to watch.
Detroit has won 5 games in a row and Florida lost their last game. But none of that matters because with how the standings currently are, this is a fresh start for all the Eastern Conference teams with a playoff spot and Florida being the only one’s out who can make a push.
Florida has been struggling on the power play going 1 for 23 over their last 8 games so that has been a concern. But as I said, it’s practically a new season for Florida if you are looking at them in terms of standings. And this is all speculation if Ottawa and Toronto keep slipping as they have been doing. They will.
Is Florida experienced enough however to have a strong push and make it into the playoffs? I personally do not think so but only time will tell.
Can Peter Mrazek keep the Red Wings in playoff contention? I personally don’t think so, but only time will tell. Then again I never thought Jimmy Howard could be that guy and still don’t think he can be that guy.
