Florida Panthers

The Florida Panthers got the Tampa Bay Lightning’s number during last season’s regular season. The former, however, failed to capitalize on the said advantage as the Lightning took them down when both teams squared off in the first round of the Playoffs. The agony of the defeat still lingers for the Panthers, and they could not wait to get right back at their rivals. The team is off to a blistering start, winning their first two assignments – beating the Pittsburgh Penguins and the New York Islanders, respectively. A third straight win at the expense of Tampa Bay will be a huge boost for the Panthers. Even as early as now, supporters of the Panthers can expect their team to give its 100% on the road. 

Players to watch: G. Forsling D (G 0, A 3, PTS 3), A. Barkov C (G 1, A 2, PTS 3), C. Verhaeghe LW (G 2, A 1, PTS 3).

Tampa Bay Lightning

The Tampa Bay Lightning know that the entire league is coming after them. Playing against the Panthers at home on Tuesday, the two-time reigning Stanley Cup champions are bracing for a highly physical encounter on ice. The huge target on their backs are evident, hence, there is no reason for the Lightning to put their guards down. The team has played three games so far, winning two of them. Judging their play so far is quite premature, especially with how they are known to flip the switch in the latter part of the season. The slight advantage they have in the latest odds is not surprising to say the least. Playing at home against a familiar prey, one could predict Tampa Bay is smelling blood. 

Players to watch: S. Stamkos C (G 3 A 4 PTS 7),  V. Hedman D (G 0 A 5 PTS 5),N. Kucherov RW (G 1 A 3 PTS 4).
