It’s a battle for Florida in Sunrise, as the Lightning pays a visit to the Panthers.
Tampa Bay Lightning
Tampa Bay looked out of sort on Saturday in a 4–1 loss on home ice to the Anaheim Ducks. The lightning gave up three goals in the second period and could not recover from there.
It was just Tampa Bay’s second loss in regulation on the season and the Lightning still looks to be the class of the Eastern Conference.
Including this weekend’s loss, Tampa Bay still ranks near the top in goals per game, goals allowed per game and power play percentage. That power play was the big reason for the loss to the Ducks, though. Tampa went 0-for, while the Ducks converted both of theirs. It happens.
The Lightning will have its top keeper, Andrei Kasilevskiy back after the game off on Saturday. Peter Budaj has now started in two of the LIghtning’s three losses this season.
The Panthers host the third matchup between these two teams already this season. Tampa Bay hosted Florida in the first game of the season and the Panthers hosted the season’s second game at their place. The two teams split the first two and the Lightning won the aggregate, only by a slim 9–8 margin.
Florida dropped its last game, at home, 3–2, against the Red Wings. That loss comes on the heels of a 8–3 throttling of the Ducks, the team that just beat the Lightning on its home ice.
Florida scores 3.5 goals a game, which is the sixth-best in the NHL but too often those goals come at inopportune times with a big lead or when the Panthers are already down big. Monday will provide a big test against the state’s superior side.
Free Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Florida Panthers: the Lightning gets back on track.
This is the much better team. Tampa is playing away from home, yes, but not that far. I’ll take the Lightning.
