Look for this to be a rather low-scoring affair amongst two teams that tend to be more efficient on the defensive end thus far in the season. In all, the Panthers will squeak out a slim, 3-2 win in the end as the Stars will fail to get it done on the offensive end yet again en route to yet another defeat.
