Florida Panthers- New Jersey Devils Game 3 Preview
After a night that Panthers fans won’t forget in a long time, they’ll travel to New Jersey to take on the Devils on Tuesday night at Prudential Center. The Panthers have done something that they haven’t done since 1997. The Panthers got their 1st playoff and home win. The Panthers defeated the Devils 4-2 behind Stephen Weiss’s 2 goal game. After the game, the Panthers littered the ice with toy rats, bringing the tradition back in 1996, when the Panthers had their playoffs and Stanley Cup run. Despite the Game 2 win, the Devils have the advantage since they defeated the Panthers 3-2. The Panthers are 3 for 7 on the power play while the Devils are 1 of 8 on the power play. The Devils missed the playoffs last year and they have struggled at home in the playoffs in recent years. The Devils haven’t made it out of the 1st round in their last 3 playoff appearances and they’re 3-7 at the Prudential Center in the playoffs. For the Panthers to win this game, they have to do what they did in Game 2. For my prediction, I think the Devils will win 4-1.
