Stupid Lightning. No one likes them anyway.
Who: Pittsburgh Penguins (11-5-3) vs. Florida Panthers (9-6-3)
Where: Bank Atlantic Center
When: 7:30 PM EST
Channel: ROOT Sports
The Panthers are actually playing quite well this season, just two points behind the Penguins overall, and tied for first place with the Washington Capitals in their division.
The Panthers are currently 11th in goals for, just two goals out of the top ten and are 11th in goals against, one goal better than your Pittsburgh Penguins.
One advantage the Penguins might have is that the Panthers are quite bad at home this year for some reason. While on the road they are 7-4-0, at home they are just 2-2-3.
The Pens swept the season series against the Panthers last season, winning three of those four games in regulation.
Your goal scorers were Kris Letang (2), Sidney Crosby (2), Chris Conner (1), Mark Letestu (1), Matt Cooke (1), Ben Lovejoy (2), Pascal Dupuis (2), Tyler Kennedy (1), Zbynek Michalek (1), Craig Adams (1).
Two fights in this series, both from the same game.
Ben Lovejoy vs. Shawn Matthias
Nice effort by Lovegun.
Mike Rupp vs. Darcy Hordichuk
Mikey no like that.
