Joel Quenneville said it was a privilege to have fans back in the stands, something the Florida Panthers will indeed have Sunday night when they open their 2021 season against the Chicago Blackhawks.

“We are looking forward to it,’’ Quenneville said. “It is fun playing in front of people.”

The Panthers are among just a handful of NHL teams which will open their doors to a limited number of fans to kick off the season.

Tampa Bay had planned to have fans at its games, but an uptick in COVID-19 cases in the region had the team change its mind.
