It’s week one of the NHL season and it starts with a rivalry game. It’s an all Florida match up on Friday night at Amalie Arena.
The Florida Panthers make the trip to take on the Tampa Bay Lightning. The two teams played four times last year with each team winning two of the games.
The Florida Panthers had a disappointing season last year and fired their head coach and missed the playoffs by 14 points.
They basically started new with this team after cleaning the house in the off season. They were an older team last year but they made a change in this department.
Jonathan Huberdeau and Aleksander Barkov are two of the fastest players in the NHL and will make one of the fastest lines all of the NHL.
To win this game the goal tending is going to need to be good. The Panthers probably won’t have a ton of scoring chances so they are going to need to take advantage of the ones they get.
Tampa Bay Lightning
Like the Florida Panthers the Tampa Bay Lightning also missed the playoffs, and they fired their head coach and did almost a complete overhaul of their team.
They added a lot of veterans leaders like Chris Kunitz who they hope will help this team get back the playoffs.
To win this game they need to get out to a fast start and get the home crowd behind them.
