The NHL is back in action on Friday as the Florida Panthers will clash with the artwall Arena in Helsinki. This is game two of a two-game global series matchup. The Jets won game one by a score of 4-2.
Florida Panthers Form
The Panthers are one the teams that are struggling at the moment. Their record so far this season is not good as they have only two wins and 8 defeats. The Panthers have been playing below average in the last games as well as they have 4 defeats in their last 5 games.
The Panthers are placed on the 22nd spot in the league in scoring at 2.90 goals per game.
On the defensive side of the ice, they are placed on the 26th spot in goals allowed at 3.70 goals per game so far this season.
Winnipeg Jets Form
The Jets had a very good season last year. However, they have not played well in recent games. Their last game in Helsinki was a good win but their performances were not up to the necessary level for a playoff team.
On the bright side, Laine played a very good game in front of his home fans in Helsinki. He was able to score three goals in what was a perfect home comeback.
On the offensive side of the game, the Jets are placed on the 18th spot in the league in scoring with an average of 3.00 goals per game, converting 31.7 % of their chances.
On the defensive side of the game, they are on the 6th spot in goals allowed, conceding an average of 2.62 goals per game.
The Panthers are not playing well, again. They have been struggling all season last year and it seems that it will be the same for them this season as well. They have a potential, but unfortunately, this season is a bit early for them to flourish. On the other side, the Jets are a solid team with some experienced names in their roster. And even though they have not been playing well lately, they are the better team and I expect another win for the Jets in Helsinki.
