Odds as of Wednesday evening and via FanDuel, where Action Network users get a risk-free bet up to $500.

The Florida Panthers are hanging around the Atlantic Division playoff picture despite an underwhelming statistical profile. The Cats own a 48.7% expected goals rate and have especially struggled on defense, allowing 2.94 goals (28th), 2.54 expected goals (26th) and 11.2 high-danger scoring chances (26th) per 60 minutes at 5-on-5.

Florida has allowed at least four goals in five of its last six games and has earned just 44.7% of the expected goals in its last 10 games. The Panthers have enough scoring talent to make the most of some iffy 5-on-5 play, but it’s fair to question if the Panthers will be able to outrun their expected goals for the rest of the season.
