New Jersey Devils at Florida Panthers (+105, 5)

Even though the Florida Panthers are making their first trip to the playoffs since 2000, it’s not like their roster is inexperienced.

Florida has nine players with at last 40 games of postseason experience, which should help the club against a hot Devils team.

"We've got guys who have been there, done that, won Stanley Cups, whatever it may be, as does New Jersey," Stephen Weiss told reporters. "At the end of the day, it's a hockey game. I know how to play hockey. I'm just going to go out and do my thing.”

The big problem for Florida is they don’t give you a point for a tie in the postseason. Florida earned a point on 18 different occasions with overtime or shootout losses in the regular season.

The Panthers won just two of their last 10 games down the stretch, so it’s not like their experience is showing through in pressure-packed situations.

They could be a handful for the Devils, but New Jersey comes in hot with six straight wins.

Pick: Devils

Detroit Red Wings at Nashville Predators (-125, 5)

The Nashville Predators came away with a win in Game 1 and captain Shea Weber escaped a suspension after he smashed Henrik Zetterberg’s head off the glass in the final seconds. For Preds bettors, that’s a Daily Double.

Nashville certainly deserves a 1-0 lead in the series, but don’t discount the fact that Detroit outshot the Preds 37-26.

"I thought we deserved a little better, but that's why they call it a series, there's more than one game,” Detroit defenseman Brad Stuart told reporters. “We'll have an opportunity to make up for it. We're just going to come out and try to continue with the same effort we had, in the last two periods at least. I think we'll be all right, that's why these series tend to be long."

These Predators are tough. They battle hard and have a bit more offensive punch than they’ve had in past years.

Detroit won’t come out flat two games in a row, though. The Wings will have this series level heading back to Joe Louis Arena.

Pick: Red Wings
