Free NHL Pick: Florida Panthers +103

The Panthers have been playing decent hockey on the season compared to the Blackhawks. However, what is really going to be a telling sign in this game here is the fact the Blackhawks offense is playing horrible at home and the defense is only a slight improvement at home versus the road. Even with the bad Panthers road defense they will be able to bring home a win in this one. Final Score Prediction, Florida Panthers win 3-2.
