* Preview:

The Panthers are tied with the Lightning atop the Atlantic Division. General manager Dale Tallon stressed the importance playing well to end the regular season. "We had some tough ones here and now it's time to get rested and ready for Tuesday," Tallon said. "We got four big points in Boston and Tampa and now we can't waste them. We have to be ready Tuesday, have to be focused. We have a good group here and they understand that." The Panthers have won their past two games, outscoring opponents 9-3. (More) Preview:

Toronto has managed one goal in its last two after recording 15 over a three-game winning streak prior to Saturday's 3-1 loss to Boston. It's received more consistent results from goaltender Jonathan Bernier, who's allowed two goals or less in five consecutive starts. Bernier will attempt to slow down a Florida offense that's been rolling of late. Vincent Trocheck has been particularly hot, scoring in four straight and amassing six goals over the last nine.
