In the opening match of the game day of the NHL regular season, an interesting confrontation awaits us, "Florida" will host "Dallas". The game of these teams will take place on January 15 at 03:00 Moscow time. Our portal offers you its forecast for the outcome of this meeting.

 Florida Panthers

The Panthers had a great start to the season and were the leaders of their division for a long time. After the coach's dismissal, the Panthers lost confidence in their abilities, the game became crumpled, which brought a terrible away series of defeats. Florida is playing more confidently at home, and now it's giving out a series of victories altogether. In the last meeting, the Panthers managed to beat Vancouver 5-2 with a big score.

Dallas Stars

In the opening rounds, the "stars" did not look the best, they often fail in defense and have problems with implementation. There are also minor problems in the attack, where the leaders play poorly, which has resulted in the loss of a young attacking link due to illness. Now the team is giving out an excellent series of victories, with the exception of a failure against St. Louis, and in the last match they managed to beat Seattle with a score of 5:2.
