It’s a full schedule of NHL games on Saturday night across the league. One of those games is an in state rivalry between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Florida Panthers.
This is kind of a weird schedule because these teams also kicked off the season against each other, so this will be the second game played between the two teams this week.
In the first game Lightning won 3-5.
Tampa Bay Lightning
The Tampa Bay Lightning had a disappointing season last year and did almost a complete overhaul of the front office and some of the team.
They hope these changes are going to lead to some success this year, and at least in game one they looked better.
They still struggled on the defensive zone still, but when you score five goals you have a little wiggle room to work.
In this game the Lightning need to try to play better in the defensive zone. They need to try and not let so many shots on goal.
On the other side of this match up is the Florida Panthers who are going through a bit of a rebuild, and not many have real high expectations this season for this team.
Roberto Lungo really struggled in game one giving up five goals. A couple of those goals were tough but he let up two goals that never should have made it to the back of the net.
To win this game the defense needs to be better. They need to to not let this game become such a high scoring affair or they will start out the season 0-2.
