The Florida Panthers (9-7-1) will wrap a five-homestand this afternoon when they play host to the middling Calgary Flames (7-7-2) at FLA Live Arena. After a terrible first period cost them Thursday’s night tilt against the Dallas Stars, the Cats are just 2-2 on this run of home games in Sunrise. After losing six in a row, Calgary posted one-goal victories over Winnipeg and Los Angeles on home ice before they were beaten 4-1 by Tampa Bay to open a six-game road trip on Thursday. After making a blockbuster trade with each other this summer, neither club can be all that happy with their current position. We will see ex-Panthers Jonathan Huberdeau and MacKenzie Weegar as members of the opposition; and Matthew Tkachuk will face his original team for the first time. Should be interesting to say the least,
