We've got some interleague play in this one as the Calgary Flames host the Florida Panthers. The Florida Panthers are coming off of a big win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday. These are two teams who have disappointed out of the gates thus far. They are both much in need of a big two points in this one.
David Rittich should start in net for this game. Over 7 appearances, he has delivered a 2.38 GAA and 0.927 SV% this season. In his latest game, he was poor, allowing 4 goals. It's been a good last 3 games for David Rittich as he has 2 wins and 1 loss with a 2.68 GAA and 0.925 SV%.
Sergei Bobrovsky should be in goal for the Florida Panthers. He is 3-2-2 on the year with a 3.75 GAA. He has been bad recently, with a 0.869 save percentage in his last 3 appearances. Bobs has not lived up to his contract yet in sunny Florida.
The Florida Panthers have gone 1-2 when playing Western-Pacific opponents this season. Flames have gone 1-1 when taking on winning teams.
Getting the home team at this price is solid value. Side with the Calgary Flames here. This pick carries a 9.4% edge for us.
