Published

Florida panthers

The Florida Panthers are back in town tonight as the New Jersey Devils visit Sunrise.

Did we not just go through this?

Oh yeah, the Panthers previous win came against the Devils, oh, just five days ago.

Florida played a strong game in that one, taking a 1-0 lead in the first period before Sasha Barkov was chopped down by Nico Hirschier.

Florida went on to score twice in the second and won 4-2.

Although Saturday was Florida’s first against former coach Andrew Brunette, tonight is his return to Sunrise with the Panthers planning on honoring him.

Brunette, who joined Joel Quenneville’s staff in 2019, finished second in voting for the Jack Adams Award as Florida’s interim head coach as the Panthers won the Presidents’ Trophy.

The cap-strapped Panthers will have a little more breathing room as it appears Patric Hornqvist will not be returning to the lineup any time soon after sustaining his second concussion this season.

— It took Sam Reinhart a while to get warmed up this season but he is on absolute fire right now.

Reinhart goes into tonight’s game agains the Devils with five goals and eight points in his past four games.
