The Vegas Golden Knights look to claim their first-ever Stanley Cup championship with a win on Tuesday, when they play host to the Florida Panthers in game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final.

The Golden Knights return home after hanging on for a 3-2 victory in Florida on Saturday night to claim a 3-1 series lead. Now teetering on the brink of elimination, the Panthers must find a way to rekindle their offense after scoring just nine total goals through the first four games of the series.

Panthers vs Golden Knights Recent History

With Saturday’s victory, the Golden Knights improved to 8-3 SU in their past 11 overall dates with the Panthers. They also remain unbeaten in seven all-time meetings with Florida on home ice at T-Mobile Arena. While goals came at a premium for both these clubs in Games 3 and 4 at FLA Live Arena, the Golden Knights filled the net in the first two games of the series on home ice, outscoring the Panthers by an overall 12-4 margin.

The Golden Knights sport an 8-3 record at home so far in these playoffs, and have avoided consecutive defeats while winning 20 of 26 home contests since January 19. The Panthers saw an epic eight-game win streak on the road snapped with their two losses in Vegas earlier in the series, but have avoided losing three in a row on the road in 33 overall road contests so far in 2023.

Florida Panthers Betting Outlook

It was once again a case of too little, too late for the Panthers in Game 4 on Saturday night. Florida spotted the Golden Knights a 3-0 lead before battling back to make it a game with two goals in the final 24 minutes. Overall, the Panthers have been outscored by a 5-2 margin in first-period action so far in the series, and have scored just four total goals through the first 40 minutes.

Brandon Montour has snapped a 10-game pointless streak with two goals and an assist in the past two games, but could be in for some special treatment from the refs after setting off some fisticuffs at the conclusion of Game 4. Matthew Tkachuk continues to lead the club with 24 points, but has been held off the scoresheet twice so far in the series.

Vegas Golden Knights Betting Outlook

Chandler Stephenson emerged as the hero of Game 4 by potting the first two goals of the game to increase his total to 10 so far in the postseason, and he has now recorded multiple points in two of the past three games.

Jonathan Marchessault has also continued to feast on his former Panthers teammates. With an assist on William Karlsson’s game winner on Saturday night, Marchessault now has eight goals and 14 points during his current nine-game points streak including four goals and seven points in the series.

Adin Hill continues to impress in the Vegas crease. The Golden Knights netminder has compiled an impressive .925 save percentage so far in the series, and offers value as a -125 props bet to make at least 28.5 saves in Game 5.

Panthers vs Golden Knights Game 5 Prediction

Slow starts, a sputtering attack, and an inability to intimidate the Golden Knights have all worked against the Panthers in their return to the Stanley Cup Final.

While no one should discount the possibility of netminder Sergei Bobrovsky stealing a win for Florida, the Panthers’ offensive struggles add to the value of Vegas’ odds to raise the Cup on Tuesday night.

The Pick: Golden Knights -1.5 (+160); UNDER 6 (-120); Jonathan Marchessault Last Scorer (+850)
