NHL revises the Florida Panthers 2021 schedule



Florida 2021 schedule Panthers

The Florida Panthers had their first two games of the 2021 season against the Dallas Stars postponed because of COVID-19.

Friday, the NHL tweaked the Panthers’ schedule to fit those games in.

First off, the two games against the Stars will both be played at BB&T Center in Sunrise: the rescheduled opener will now be played on Monday, Feb. 22 at 7 p.m.

The second game of the series, which was to be played Friday night, will now be on Monday, May 3 at 7.

To fit those two games in, a few other games on the schedule had to be rearranged — and it gives the Panthers a few more set of back-to-back games.

In February, the Panthers were to visit Detroit and play the Red Wings on the 19th and 21st; now, the game on the 21st has been moved up to the 20th.

The originally scheduled home game against Dallas on Feb. 23 has been moved back to the following day, meaning the two teams will play on back-to-back nights instead of having a day off in between.

Florida’s road game at Tampa Bay on May 4 has also been moved up to March 16 which breaks up what was to be a four-game homestand.

It also means Florida will travel to Tampa following a home game against Chicago on March 15.

The moves do give the Panthers a bit of a break at the end of the season, however, as Florida was to play the Lightning three times (once in Tampa) in the final week of the regular season.

Now, the Panthers will end with a three-game homestand with one game against Dallas and the final two against Tampa Bay.
