ESPN NHL Pick Florida Panthers vs. Montreal Canadiens
The Montreal Canadiens should be tho oblivious choice here. They have been the better team throughout the season and have been in fine touch of late. However they come into this game following two losses and that that might have just released some momentum that was built up over the last few weeks. The Panthers on the other hand have played some of their best hockey this season these last few weeks. They are also hot off a victory against the Flames one of the more dominant teams this season. This win is sure to have given the Panthers some much needed morale boost and momentum something the Montreal team is lacking. Expect the Panthers to walk away with this one.
