Red Wings at Panthers: Projected starting goalies
Thomas Greiss (2-14-4, 3.51 GAA, .885 SV%) vs. Sergei Bobrovsky (13-5-2, 2.91 GAA, .903 SV%)
Greiss was buried Thursday against the Nashville Predators in allowing 3 goals on 7 shots in the first 7:39 before he was pulled. Prior to that ugly outing, he had allowed a total of 5 goals in his previous two starts. He is 1-3-1 with a 3.03 GAA and .898 SV% in five games against the Panthers.
Bobrovsky has taken about a season and a half to settle in with the Panthers after some uneven results. The Panthers are finally starting to get the guy they thought they were getting when they shelled out huge money two offseasons ago. He is 7-3-0 with a 2.80 GAA and .907 SV% in his 10 outings in March.

Red Wings at Panthers: Odds, lines, predictions and picks
Panthers 3, Red Wings 1
Money line (ML)
The Panthers (-250) are too expensive on the money line, as you have to risk two and a half times your potential return. That’s risky business considering the Red Wings have beaten them twice in six previous meetings, with four of the games decided by 1 goal.

Against the spread (ATS)
The PANTHERS -1.5 (+115) are worth playing lightly on the puck line, mainly because they’re at home.
Even though the Red Wings have played them tough this season, Florida has won three of its past four home games, and each of their past four victories on home ice were by 2 or more goals.
UNDER 5.5 (-105) is the play here, especially because of the Red Wings. The Under is 5-1-2 in Detroit’s past eight games and 5-1 in its six meetings with the Panthers this season.
The Under is also 4-0 in Florida’s past four games as a favorite, and 5-2 in its past seven games overall.
