Florida Panthers GameDay

GameDay 51: Lineups, Betting Odds for Predators at Panthers



Florida panthers

The Florida Panthers have been absolutely on first since late December and they will try and keep their winning ways going Tuesday night in Sunrise.

Florida is now 17-3-1 since Dec. 28 following a three-game road sweep of Carolina, Minnesota and Chicago coming out of a two-week All-Star break.

On Thursday, the Nashville Predators come to Sunrise as the Panthers play their first home game in three weeks.

Nashville will be trying to get their game back on track.

The Preds have not handled their return from a little break well at all as they have lost all four games since coming back.

Tuesday’s game against the Panthers kicks off a big week for the Predators. On Thursday, the team will retire its first number as Pekka Rinne’s No. 35 goes to the Bridgestone Arena roster.

Saturday night, the Preds will play the Lightning at the Titans’ football stadium.

As for the Panthers, this is the start of a five-game homestand as the team tries to set yet another a franchise record for consecutive home wins.

Florida comes into the night with wins in its past nine at FLA Live Arena and could tie the 11-game home winning streak with wins against the Predators tonight and Columbus on Thursday.

A win Saturday afternoon against Edmonton would set the record.

But that’s jumping way ahead.

Florida will have Sergei Bobrovsky back in net tonight as he has won his past six starts.

The Panthers are also expected to activate Maxim Mamin from IR and not play Noel Acciari. Mamin would rejoin Sasha Barkov and Carter Verhaeghe on the top line.

As for the roster move which is needed to activate Mamin, one would be assigning Owen Tippett to AHL Charlotte.

Tippett, along with Acciari, were working with the scratches following Tuesday’s morning skate.
