Florida Panthers

The Panthers have not played a single game since their loss to the Rangers on Feb. 1. The team may be wary that rust could be a factor against a dangerous team like the Hurricanes, who are also looking to redeem themselves after a rather disastrous road trip. But the Panthers insist they are not worried about the effects of the extended break, saying the team is excited to be back in action. “You can tell the guys are excited to be back. We’ve been working hard. The fun part is in front of us here, and we’d better have a good stretch,” Patric Hornqvist said. A three-game road trip starting in Carolina is ahead for Florida. The break has allowed Tampa Bay to outlast the Panthers in the Atlantic Division standings. But now that they are back, Florida is ready to take the supremacy back. 

Players to watch: J. Huberdeau LW (G 17, A 47, PTS 64), S. Reinhart C (G 16, A 28, PTS 44), A. Ekblad D (G 10, A 31, PTS 41).

Carolina Hurricanes

Unlike the Panthers, the Hurricanes had to battle through a busy schedule after the All-Star break. But instead of taking advantage of the stretch, Carolina found itself stumbling amidst the four-game road trip, winning only once. It was a teaching lesson for the team, especially that the second half of the season is already underway. They remain the second-best team in the Metropolitan and the fifth-best across the league. With the caliber that they have, a major bounce back is expected of them. Back at home on Wednesday facing another tough team, the Hurricanes will be up to the test. The level of competition is going a notch higher, and Carolina needs to catch up. 

Players to watch: S. Aho C (G 21, A 27, PTS 48), A. Svechnikov RW (G 20, A 24, PTS 44), T. DeAngelo D (G 8, A 30, PTS 38).
