When the Florida Panthers finally open their 2021 season Sunday night, Chris Driedger will be the team’s starting goalie.

With Sergei Bobrovsky missing almost all of training camp and off the team’s opening night roster, Driedger will start against the Chicago Blackhawks with Sam Montembeault serving as the backup.

Bobrovsky, coach Joel Quenneville said, appears to be ready to play despite only going through three practices with the Panthers.

He likely gets the start on Tuesday, Quenneville said.

But Sunday belongs to Driedger.
