SUNRISE — The Florida Panthers and Seattle Kraken only play twice a season so it is definitely odd to see both of those games come within just over a week.

Eight days ago, the Panthers went to Seattle and got their first-ever win against the Kraken as Florida was down three players but still rolled to a 5-1 win.

Spencer Knight was terrific for the Panthers that night as he ended with 35 saves — including 12 in the second when the Kraken brought all it had.

Is Knight back in net tonight?

He is not.

Knight is still dealing with the illness that has gone through the team and will not be in uniform tonight.

Coach Paul Maurice added that Anton Lundell remains out as well.

The Panthers will start Sergei Bobrovsky for the third consecutive game with Alex Lyon backing up.

Martin Jones will start for the Kraken.

Florida certainly could use a win here after losing 4-1 to the Lightning on Saturday.

As the Panthers were playing in Tampa, the Kraken were in South Florida waiting and watching.

Seattle has not won since Florida snapped its seven-game winning streak, dropping its past three games.

This is the second game of a four-game road trip for the Kraken which started with a 4-1 loss to the Washington Capitals on Friday night.
