7:05 PM EST. OT included. This play has little to do with these two teams, as the Panthers will be scoreboard watching this afternoon when the Flyers take on the Rangers at 3:00 PM EST. If Philadelphia wins, as expected (they are at home and a -220 favorite), then this game tonight becomes absolutely meaningless for the Panthers. We can assure you that the Panthers will have the Rangers/Flyers on TV in the locker room and will know the score and the final. If Philly wins, Florida’s season is over and they will not only be playing for nothing, they will very likely be suffering a big mental letdown upon taking the ice after playing their hearts out over the past two months to get in this position.
With a Philly win, the price on the Sabres is likely to go down, as Florida would no longer have anything to play for. However, even if the Rangers pull off the upset, the Sabres can still relish in the role of spoiler with a chance to end the Panthers' season themselves. At this price, we'd still be happy to be holding this ticket if that is the situation that plays out because Florida is just not good enough to be priced in this range and they’ll be hugely vulnerable if the Flyers knock them out before the puck drops here. We’re anticipating a Flyers victory and should that come to pass, this price on Buffalo will be a steal.
