The Florida Panthers are on the road as they travel to face the Tampa Bay Lightning Saturday night. Florida was dropped 3-2 in a shootout on the road by Pittsburgh Thursday night in their most recent contest. Tampa Bay was upended 2-1 in overtime by Carolina in their most recent contest Tuesday night. In the last 10 meetings, the Panthers have taken six of them. That includes a 4-1 road victory in the first matchup between the teams this season back on October 19.
