Atlanta Thrashers at Florida Panthers

Both teams are playing their second game in as many nights. Even though it is early in the season this still has a tendency to slow things down, especially in the third period.

The Panthers have a very promising blue line in front of goaltender netminder Tomas Vokoun. This guy regularly robs snipers of sure goals and can steal a game from time to time.

Florida won't wow anyone with its offense but the team can wear opponents down on the D side of things. The Thrashers don’t have much firepower so the main way they will win games this year is laying back and waiting for chances.

Last year seven of the eight meetings between these two clubs played under the total. Look for another low-scoring game here.

Pick: Under 5.5

Los Angeles Kings at San Jose Sharks

The Sharks started the season out with a bang beating division rival Anaheim 4-1 on Thursday. The new guys – head coach Todd McLellan and defensemen Rob Blake and Dan Boyle - all injected life in this already lethal Sharks team.

Blake and Boyle both had an assist and McLellan's guru stamp was all over the power play. The new bench boss incorporated his power play strategies to the Sharks quite seamlessly. The Sharks will be contending for the Western Conference title and it showed in this game.

This will be the opening game for LA. Terry Murray will have his hands full this year with a young rebuilding project. Well let’s call it the John Tavares project. That’s the kid everyone wants in this coming draft.

The Kings did some major salary dumping cutting ties with defensemen Rob Blake and Lubomir Visnovsky. As a result the blue line is just a rag-tag group this year. Drew Doughty and Thomas Hickey are in for a long season, but the question mark is Jack Johnson. He hasn’t lived up to the hype yet.

On the offensive side of things Anze Kopitar is the gun for the Kings. He scored 32 goals and had 45 helpers last year. With proper management and structure, this team could be a force in a few years time.

But not tonight.

Pick: Sharks -1.5
