Money Line: -164.00 Philadelphia (Home)
Philly put an end to a three game losing skid with a 4-1 home win over the Oilers on Tuesday. They've now won three straight at home, and they host the Florida Panthers tonight. Florida has been a little more competitive since acquiring star netminder Roberto Luongo, and they have yet to lose in regulation time on the road.
Don't expect that trend to continue though, as scoring goals remains a serious issue for the Panthers. Florida ranks 29th in the NHL, averaging just 1.5 goals per game. Special teams remains a sore spot for Florida, as they rank in the bottom half of the league on the power-play as well as penalty kill.
Flyers goaltender Steve Mason is coming off his best start of the season, stopping 35-of-36 shots in the win over the Oilers. He's 6-2 with a 1.69 GAA lifetime versus Florida.
Vincent Lecavalier will be playing his third game back after missing seven games due to injury. His first game back was a loss at Florida, but he scored the Flyers only goal in that game. He's got 14 points in his last nine games versus the Panthers.
