The Florida Panthers kick off their annual California road trip tonight as they visit the San Jose Sharks.

The game is scheduled for a 10:30 p.m. start and it is only available for viewing on the ESPN+ and Hulu streaming platforms.

Bally Sports Florida resumes coverage on Thursday in Los Angeles.

Florida, which beat the Sharks 3-1 in Sunrise on Oct. 24, will go back to Anthony Stolarz tonight.

It will be Stolarz’s third start of the season — and second against his old friends from San Jose.

Stolarz is now 9-1-0 against the Sharks during his career; in his first start with the Panthers, he made 27 saves against San Jose.

Tonight also marks the return of Steven Lorentz to San Jose. He spent just one season with the Sharks before being traded to the Panthers on July 1 as part of the Anthony Duclair deal.

Speaking of Duclair, the former Florida forward is questionable for tonight.

Duclair, who is battling illness, did not take part in morning skate but could still play tonight. He has missed the past two games.

San Jose started its season 0-10-1 before winning consecutive games. The Sharks come into tonight with losses in its past two.

— Florida coach Paul Maurice said that Brandon Montour and Aaron Ekblad could return to the lineup during this California trip but that it would be “a scheduled thing.’’

“It it happens,” Maurice said, “it will probably be Anaheim.’’

Florida visits the Ducks on Friday night after playing in Los Angeles on Thursday.

— As for Jonah Gadjovich making his debut with the Panthers, Maurice insinuated that he remains with AHL Charlotte on a conditioning assignment.

The Checkers are on the west coast and play in San Diego this week.

Gadjovich can stay with the Checkers for another week after being assigned on Nov. 7.

— The starting goalies tonight: Stolarz vs. Mackenzie Blackwood.
