The Florida Panthers (11-9-4) will face the Seattle Kraken (15-5-3) at Climate Pledge Arena for the second time ever tonight. Florida is coming is off a slump-busting 5-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks that has them sitting at 1-1-1 on this five-game road trip. The second-year Kraken are one of the biggest surprises in the league this season. Seattle enters having won seven straight games, including back-to-back overtime wins over the Los Angeles Kings and the Washington Capitals. The Panthers were swept by the Kraken last season, so they’ll be looking to get their first win against the NHL newest team tonight.
