The Florida Panthers put their six-game winning streak to the test against host Carolina on Tuesday night.
If they didn’t regret trading Vincent Trocheck away last February, well, he makes sure they do every time they meet.
Tuesday night, Trocheck scored twice and the Hurricanes got a pair of empty net goals to snap Florida’s winning streak with a 5-2 win at PNC Arena.
Trocheck and Jordan Staal each scored twice, spoiling a big game from Sasha Barkov.
The good news? Florida remains atop the Central Division.
The bad? Carolina has won four of five against the Panthers and is right on their heels.
