The Florida Panthers finally put an end to the longest losing streak of the season on Wednesday night in Toronto and will try to stay on the winning path tonight against the Montreal Canadiens.

Florida has owned the Canadiens lately, winning seven of the past eight games.

This season, the Panthers are 3-0 against Montreal — outscoring the Canadiens 22-9 in the process.

The two teams played in Sunrise on March 16 with Florida winning 9-5 in a crazy game in which Montreal scored on three of the first shots it took.

Sergei Bobrovsky was in net that night and ended up getting the win, but he will miss his second consecutive game with an illness.

Alex Lyon, the star of Florida’s 3-2 overtime win in Toronto on Wednesday, will again be in net.

Sam Bennett will also miss his sixth consecutive game with a lower-body injury.

In Florida’s 9-5 win, Sam Montembeault started that game only to get pulled after giving up the first three goals.

He did return and shut the Panthers down in the third period. Montembeault will be the starting goalie against his former team again tonight.

Florida is also trying to improve on its record of 2-6-3 in the second game of a back-to-back this season.

Montreal comes into the night winners of two of its past three games but is coming off a loss in Philadelphia on Tuesday night.
