Analysis

The Panthers ended 2018 on a bit of a roll -- having won four of their last five games.  But before we proclaim that this team will be able to compete with the likes of the Lightning, Caps, and Leafs in the East, let's take a look at who they beat.  Those four wins came against the Flyers, Blackhawks, and Red Wings (twice) -- three teams  well under .500 and a combined ledger of 45 wins and 65 losses.  Before that little softball of a break in their schedule, the Panthers had lost five of seven.  Oddly enough, one of those two victories was against this Sabres team on December 18 (and they also beat them the time before that).  So the Sabres have some serious revenge business to take care of tonight.  And that's an angle that's worked well for this team as Buffalo is 5-1 in its last six (14-7 in its last 21) revenging a home blowout loss of three or more goals.  Take Buffalo.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie.  And don't miss any of my RED-HOT Winners.  We're 30-10 our last 40 NFL, and have 3 big NFL plays already posted for Wild Card action.  And we also are 8-0 our last 8 Bowl Plays, and have our NCAA Game of the Month in Monday's Championship Game.
