#11/12 ASA PLAY ON 8* OVER 5.5 Goals (-102) - Florida Panthers vs Carolina Hurricanes, Monday at 8:05 PM ET - The Hurricanes, in the series with New Jersey, the Canes averaged 4.6 goals scored per game! After coming up just short in each of the first two games of this series, look for Carolina to come up with a huge effort on the road at Florida in Game 3. The Panthers, are a very confident bunch here at home as they score particularly well on home ice. They also have built plenty of momentum with back to back wins at Carolina. However, the Hurricanes are proven road warriors plus have their backs against the wall now in this series and we could see this one turning into a back and forth high-scoring affair in which a 4-3 type of final would not be a surprise at all. The Hurricanes must respond after the Game 1 and 2 losses on home ice. But also there is going to be tired legs defensively on both teams as the defensemen get more extra work than the forwards in long multi-OT games like the one that played out in Game 1 of this series and though Game 2's OT was a short one, the accumulation of ice takes a toll simply because there are fewer defensemen on an NHL roster. Over is our play here.
