Florida Panthers at New Jersey Devils (-170, 5)

The Panthers got three goals from defensemen in their stunning 4-3 comeback win over the Devils on Tuesday.

“Any time you can get scoring from the back end, that’s going to make a difference,” said Jason Campbell, who had one of the tallies. “We got some good screens and you get rewarded.”

Both teams pulled their goalies in Game 3. The Devils will go back to 39-year-old Martin Brodeur, but it’s fair to wonder how long a leash he’ll have.

Florida has cashed in on 6 of 10 power-play opportunities.

The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings in New Jersey, and 4-0-2 in the Panthers’ last six games overall.

Pick: Over

St. Louis Blues at San Jose Sharks (-110, 5)

The Sharks had an extra day off between Games 3 and 4 to tweak their penalty kill, and that’s good. Because it needs a lot of work.

St. Louis scored three power-play goals to win 4-3 Monday and grab a 2-1 series lead.

The Sharks’ struggle on the penalty kill comes as no surprise: they finished 29th in the NHL with a 76.7 percent success rate in the regular season. In the last two regular-season games, San Jose gave up six power-play goals.

In Game 3, San Jose won only four of 11 faceoffs when in the defensive zone on the penalty kill or in the offensive zone on the power play. The Sharks converted 1 of 4 power plays, while the Blues converted 3 of 4.

“Winning faceoffs and getting clears are as important as reading what they're doing on their power play,” Sharks coach Todd McLellan said.

The Blues have won six of the past seven meetings.

Pick: Blues
