Scouting Report (Full preview at Winners & Whiners)

The Tampa Bay Lightning visit the Florida Panthers in Game One of the Second Round after splitting the four regular-season matchups. The Lightning were trailing 3-2 in the First Round but defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs in back-to-back games to advance to the Second Round. The Panthers trailed in the First Round 2-1 to the Washington Capitals but won three games in a row to secure the series. The Lightning are looking to become the first team to win three consecutive Stanley Cup titles since the New York Islanders in the 1980s while the Panthers are hoping to snap the Presidents’ Trophy curse and win their first-ever Stanley Cup and the upcoming game and series should be a great one.
