Scouting Report (courtesy of Winners and Whiners)

The Florida Panthers hos the Washington Capitals in Game Five of the First Round in what has been back and forth series. The Capitals won Game One and Game Three but after an overtime defeat, hope to retake the momentum of the series. The Panthers, meanwhile, entered the series as heavy favorites but trailing 2-1 had to fight back to force overtime in Game Four and eventually won the game to even up the series. Both teams are looking to win Game Five to put themselves one game away from the Second Round and the upcoming game should be a great one.
