Two teams who have bounced back and forth from the win column and loss column to start the season meet on Monday as the Tampa Bay Lightning and Florida Panthers get set for battle.
Tampa Bay Lightning
The Lightning look to make it 4 straight games with at least 1 point when they enter play on Monday night.
Tampa Bay’s offense has finally found their groove.
After scoring just 3 goals in a 3 game losing streak, Tampa Bay has put in 13 goals during their last 3 games. On Saturday, it was a 4 goal performance against the New Jersey Devils that got them back in the win column after an overtime loss.
It’s the forwards that are really getting the huge push for the Lightning here.
Steven Stamkos and Ondrej Palat continue to be productive on the first line, while Nikita Kucherov has stepped up.
Kucherov leads the team with 15 points and comes in off a goal and an assist in Saturday’s victory.
The Panthers have seen injuries play a role in their early portion of the season.
Florida will welcome back Jussi Jokinen (knee) and Nick Bjugstad (hand) at some point this week, two crucial parts of this team.
However, they could be without Jaromir Jagr, who injured his groin in Saturday’s loss and is listed as questionable for Monday night’s action.
Over their last 7 games, the Panthers are a mere 2-5, but playing at home here could be a huge advantage for them. Florida has won 4 of their first 6 at home, while putting up 3 goals per game.
Home defensive play has been the biggest advantage though. Florida is giving up just over 2 goals per home contest.
