The Florida Panthers (15-14-4) return home to FLA Live Arena after splitting a two-game road trip to face the slumping New Jersey Devils (21-9-2) for the second time in four days. Florida beat New Jersey 4-2 on Saturday, but were not able to build any momentum as they got smoked 7-3 by the Boston Bruins at TD Garden on Tuesday. The Devils have dropped six straight and were knocked from first place in the Metropolitan Division last night, falling 4-1 to the new top dog, the Carolina Hurricanes by a 4-1 count. That’s quite the plunge considering New Jersey lost only four times through the end of November.
