The Panthers picked up a “convincing” 3-0 win on Monday against a lowly Devils squad where two of the goals were empty netters. Maybe that’s enough to get them rolling, I’m not sure with this team anymore, but they face another bad team here. Naturally, I like Roberto Luongo who picked up a shutout in that game.
Greiss has been a little too good lately, so I like the Panthers second line tonight, especially since they probably get a good match-up against the weak depth that the Islanders have. Jussi Jokinen, Jonathan Marchessault, and Reilly Smith all had a pretty decent game last time, but that was mostly because of the empty net goals. This should be close so they’ll likely be on in that situation again, and they’ve also got a decent chance to contribute real goals as well.
