Notable:

Forwards Teddy Purcell and Jiri Hudler are cleared to play and will be in Florida's lineup this evening after both missed the Colorado game thanks to visa issues...Arizona wing Max Domi was suspended for tonight's match due to this.

NHL.com Preview:

Jaromir Jagr needs one point to break a tie with Gordie Howe and move into sole possession of third place on the NHL's all-time scoring list. Florida needs points in general: the Tampa Bay Lightning have overtaken them for first in the Atlantic Division by virtue of having five more regulation/overtime wins.  (More)

Yahoo.com Preview:

[The Panthers] beat the Coyotes 3-2 on Feb. 25 before starting their trip with Aleksander Barkov tallying a pair of goals. Jagr had an assist on his second score. Florida has lost four of five in Arizona and scored one goal in regulation in each of the past four visits. In this matchup, the Panthers will take on a team that's lost a season-high seven in a row. The Coyotes have been outscored 11-1 in the past two losses, falling 5-1 to Anaheim on Thursday in their return from a five-game trip.  (More)
