Another bright spot for the Preds is the play from forward Filip Forsberg, as he leads the team in goals with his 25 on the year and has recorded three in his last five games for Nashville. 

Looking at the Panthers Stats

Florida finds themselves playing like a top contender in the NHL this season. They currently lead the Atlantic Division with 75 points from their 35-10-5 record on the year.

They are one point away from leading the NHL in points. Their offense is potent, and their 4.12 goals per game average is good for first in the NHL. 

A major part of that offensive success is the consistent play from winger Jonathan Huberdeau who has 70 points on the season. This comes from his 17 goals and 53 assists on the year. In the past five games, Huberdeau has eight assists to his name.

Their superstar center, Aleksander Barkov, leads the team in goals with 23 on the season. The Panthers have plenty of scoring depth which makes them a dangerous team to play against late in the season.

  • The Panthers are 28-22 against the puck line this season
  • Florida hits the over in 62% of their games
  • Nashville hits the over in 58% of their games
  • The Predators are 16-11 against the spread on the road

Predators at Panthers Prediction

Both the Predators and the Panthers are averaging over three goals per game this season. They have plenty of scoring depth and options to put the puck in the net. Florida is currently on a nine-game home winning streak. 

While the Panthers have been the more dominant team all season, the Predators have quietly kept pace to make a playoff push. This will be a high pace offensive battle between these two franchises. 

Take the over 6.5 goals (-120) in this contest on Tuesday evening.
