Pucking Hockey is 4-3 +$1,089 so far this week in NHL Hockey Picks. Today we have a top NHL hockey pick Tampa Bay Lightning vs Florida Panthers.
Florida’s Playoff Chances
Florida once looked like they could clip the slumping Bruins for the final playoff spot but it seems like Florida just can’t get over the consistent hump. They are only four points behind Boston, but with how tight the Easter Conference has been, and Boston finally getting back on track, four points seems like a mile away. Not to mention they have Philly and Ottawa right behind them, creeping closer and closer.
The Panthers acquired Jaromir Jagr from the New Jersey Devils and not only his leadership but his style of play should improve this Florida offense. Florida has had trouble getting the puck into the zone and sustaining pressure, Jagr will fix that, leading to more scoring chances.
Al Montoya is expected to start in net tonight. Montoya allowed five goals on 26 shots in the Panthers loss in Pittsburgh on February 22nd. He has gone 1-2-0 with a 3.03 GAA and .898 SV% in his last three outings.
Tampa Bay Keeps On Rolling Offensively
In Tampa’s last 4 games they have scored exactly four goals in each game. Totaling 16 goals in their last four games. I know, I’m not surprised either, this is something the Bolts have been doing since game 1. What’s impressive about their 4 game winning streak is that they took down Anaheim and Chicago in two of those four games. Although Chicago’s dealing with their own issues concerning Patrick Sharp, and it’s affecting them on the ice. Regardless, Tampa won the game.
Valtteri Filppula has a team-best nine points in Tampa Bay’s five-game win streak against the Panthers (three goals, six assists). He registered 10 of his 44 points in the past nine contests, totaling one goal and nine assists.
