Panthers at Predators: Projected starting goalies

Sergei Bobrovsky (17-8-2, .907 SV%, 2.86 GAA) vs. Pekka Rinne (9-12-1, .902 SV%, 2.97 GAA)

Bobrovsky stopped 9 of the 11 shots he faced in relief of starter Chris Driedger Monday. The former Vezina Trophy winner won five of his last eight starts. He’s 2-1-1 with a .889 save percentage and 3.59 goals against average through five appearances against the Preds.

Rinne, also a former Vezina winner, will make his first start since April 10, as Saros has run away with the work in the Nashville crease. The veteran earned the win in three of his last four starts. He is 1-3-0 with a .890 SV% and 3.92 GAA in four games against the Panthers.

Panthers at Predators: Odds, lines, predictions and picks


Panthers 4, Predators 2

Money line (ML)

The PANTHERS (-125) are the team to back, as they deserved a much better fate Monday. Saros stole the win for the home side in the first half of this back-to-back.

Florida registered 69.32% of the total shot attempts and 65.45% of the scoring chances at 5-on-5 Monday.

The Panthers have a slight edge in the goaltending matchup for the rematch and will seal the win in the season series.

Against the spread (ATS)

The PANTHERS -1.5 (+195) can be backed with a small wager to win by 2 or more goals, but it may require an empty-netter.

Florida is the considerably healthier team in this matchup and that’ll play more to the visitors’ advantage in Game 2; however, the Predators are the more motivated side while fighting to hold off the Dallas Stars (21-15-12) in the Central’s playoff race.

Over/Under (O/U)

Hedge against our above empty-net goal prediction on the puck line and bet the UNDER 6 (-115), even though a push seems most likely.

This is an early playoff game between the 2021 rivals and each of the last three meetings hit the Under.
