The Florida Panthers (21-20-4) will once again be looking to post its first three-game winning streak of the 2022-23 season when they face the Toronto Maple Leafs (26-11-7) for the first time tonight at Scotiabank Arena. Florida is getting right back at it after an impressively-played 4-1 road win over the Buffalo Sabres yesterday afternoon at KeyBank Arena. Brandon Montour, Sam Bennett, Anton Lundell and Carter Verhaeghe (ENG) scored the goals. Matthew Tkachuk collected three assists and Alesksander Barkov, Samson Reinhart, Gustav Forsling and Verhaeghe each had one helper. Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 28 of 29 shots, yielding only a aesthetically unpleasing third period goal to Alex Tuch. The Maple Leafs return home to Toronto after going 0-2 on a short road trip that saw them fall 4-1 in Detroit and 4-3 in Boston.
