GameDay 75: Lineups, Betting Odds for Panthers at Red Wings

Florida panthers

When the Florida Panthers take the ice this afternoon, the Detroit Red Wings have a long list of players they need to keep a close eye on.

Defenseman Gus Forsling is probably a newcomer to that list.

Forsling, now in his second season with the Panthers, is having a career year — and a career month.

On Friday night, Forsling came close to his first NHL hat trick after he scored twice against the Winnipeg Jets.

It was his second multi-goal game in April (he also scored twice in the comeback win over New Jersey) as he comes into Sunday’s game with five goals and seven points in the month.

The five goals match what he scored in 43 games with the Panthers last season.

“It is fun to score and I want to keep doing that, for sure,” Forsling said following Friday’s win.

The Panthers, everyone knows, create a lot of offense from their defensemen and Forsling has been adding into that in a big way this season.

His eight goals rank third on the Panthers among defensemen trailing Aaron Ekblad (15) and Brandon Montour (nine).

— The Panthers return to ESPN on Sunday from Detroit.

Spencer Knight will get the start for the Panthers with Petteri Lindbohm replacing Robert Hagg.

The Red Wings come into the game following a 4-0 loss to the New York Rangers on Saturday.
