Result: Loss
#15 ASA NHL TOP PLAY ON 10* Carolina Hurricanes Money Line (-105) over Florida Panthers, Wednesday at 8 PM ET - The Panthers 1-0 win over Carolina Monday was their first shutout victory of the post-season and the first-ever playoff shutout for Sergei Bobrovsky in his career. The Panthers had only 2 home ice shutouts in the entirety of the regular season. Each time they lost their next game and those defeats were by identical 4-2 scores. All 3 wins in this series for Florida have been by 1 goal and the first two were OT victories. Carolina outshot Florida 32 to 17 in the Game 3 loss. A key player, Barkov, for the Panthers was knocked out of that game early and never returned. He could be back tonight but will not be 100%. The Hurricanes are a determined group with a determined hard-nosed head coach that knows how to get the best out of his players. This series has been tight all the way through and the Panthers are very fortunate to be up 3 games to 0 in this one. The Canes will not quit and have largely avoided losing streaks of more than 2 games this season. This is their first 3-gamer of the post-season and it is the perfect spot to back them for a bounce back. Carolina also won the shots on goal battle in Games 1 and 2 of this series and has had a 70 to 43 edge in shots on goal in games 2 and 3 combined. This has simply been a crazy series as it seems unfathomable that Florida could be up 3 to 0 when you see how this one has played out on the ice. The Hurricanes have to be happy with their level of play yet they have fallen just short of the victory in all 3 games. The determination level and relentlessness of the Canes will be off the charts in this one. Coach Rod Brind'Amour has had his team ready and is one of the best in the business when it comes to preparing his team in the toughest of situations. Down 0-3 but knowing they just need 1 win here and then this series could "turn on a dime", we have no doubt the Hurricanes will be getting some high quality shots and screened shots plus will take advantage of power play chances (likely to get more opportunities tonight), and the result will be a solid road win. Carolina Hurricanes Money Line is the play in this one!
