The Vancouver Canucks and the Florida Panthers will both be gunning for a victory on Saturday when they meet at BB&T Center.

ABOUT THE CANUCKS (12-13-2): Erik Gudbranson has slumped out of the blocks since joining Vancouver in an offseason deal from Florida, and he isn’t shy about admitting it. “I personally struggled a little with the new systems and adapting to it and finding a way within that system to play physical,” the 24-year-old defenseman told the Vancouver Sun. “I want to be tough to play against. I want guys to know they’re going to get hit if they come to my side. For a while there, I was struggling to find a way to have that presence.” Gudbranson is saddled with a minus-13 rating, but enters Saturday’s game on a high after scoring his first goal of the season while seeing his ice time elevate with Alex Edler and Chris Tanev sidelined by injury.

ABOUT THE PANTHERS (12-12-4): Future Hall of Famer Jaromir Jagr, who is within five points of tying Mark Messier (1,887) for second place in NHL history, will see an unfamiliar face join Aleskander Barkov on the team’s top line. The offensive-minded Seth Griffith, who was claimed off waivers last month, has worked his way up from the fourth line despite being held off the scoresheet in eight of nine games with Florida. Barkov has three goals and an assist in his last five games and also has four points (one goal, three assists) in five career encounters versus Vancouver.

gtbets-sportsbook currently has the Panthers listed as 200-moneyline favorites versus the Canucks, while the game’s total is sitting at 5.

The Panthers were a 5-1 loser in their most recent outing at home against the Penguins. That made winners of bettors who got Pittsburgh at -134 on the moneyline, while the total score (6) was good news for OVER bettors.

The Canucks were a 5-1 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Lightning. That made winners of bettors who got Vancouver at +199 on the moneyline, while the total score (6) was good news for OVER bettors.

Florida Panthers fans were quick to vent their frustration toward Tom Rowe as the team’s general manager/interim coach stood behind the bench in his home debut on Thursday. With Rowe clearly in the eye of the storm, the Panthers look to snap a four-game skid and are in search of just their second win in eight outings on Saturday when they host the Vancouver Canucks.

For all of their troubles, Florida finds itself just two points shy of where it stood last season – and that club put the puzzle together en route to winning 47 games and securing the Atlantic Division title. “I think it gives our guys a real good thing to shoot for. We’ve got a long way to go here in the season,” Rowe said. “The biggest thing as a coaching staff, we’ve got to make sure the emotions are even-keeled, not getting too high when we do well, not getting too low when we hit a bump.” While the bumps have been many for Florida, Vancouver has enjoyed smooth sailing with wins in four of its last six heading into the third contest of a five-game road trip. The Canucks are 1-1-0 on the current trek after Thursday’s 5-1 win over Tampa Bay and 4-3-0 in their last seven road tilts after opening the season mired in an 0-5-1 stretch away from Rogers Arena.
