The Panthers will hope to rebound after yesterday's awful performance. They'll have to do it against another of the league's best, though. The Washington Capitals currently sit 2nd in the east and are coming off of a hard fought, OT win over Boston yesterday.
That may be good news for the Panthers, as a let down is bound to happen for the Caps. Both teams played yesterday afternoon, so it's unknown at this point who will be in net for either team.
If Florida hopes to avoid a 2nd straight loss, they will have to find a way to get shots through. The Cats have struggled to find good scoring opportunities over the last week or so. You know Washington is going to get chances. Alex Ovechkin, Alex Semin, Nik Backstrom all know how to create goals. Florida will have to find itself defensively to create quick rushes and try to keep pace with the Caps. Hopefully this one is a little more fun to watch. Puck drops at 3:00.
