Prediction and betting tips
The Florida Panthers have won four of the last five matches and their single loss was in overtime. They have won four of the last eight matches, but there were not any strong rivals in these games.
The Hurricanes have won four of the last five matches, but the Maple Leafs defeated them in the last match. In the last match, the Carolina Hurricanes played much stronger than their rivals, but they were unlucky to finish most of their moments successfully. Rod Brind'Amour’s men were stronger in the 2022-23 NHL pre-season. I believe that they will be able to stop the Panther this time too.
