Scouting Report

The Panthers return home to face the Stars again after beating them 4-3 in a shootout in Dallas on Wednesday. Sergei Bobrovsky is supposed to start tonight and go the first two periods with Christopher Gibson, who went the distance on Wednesday, getting the final frame. After going youth-heavy last time out, the Cats will ice a roster that will be much closer to what we’ll see in the regular season for tonight’s home game at FLA Live Arena.

Panthers roster for tonight:

Goalies: Sergei Bobrovsky, Christopher Gibson

Defensemen: Kevin Connauton, Aaron Ekblad, Radko Gudas, Brandon Montour, Markus Nutivaara, MacKenzie Weegar

Forwards: Noel Acciari, Aleksander Barkov, Sam Bennett, Anthony Duclair, Patric Hornqvist, Jonathan Huberdeau, Eetu Luostarinen, Serron Noel, Sam Reinhart, Owen Tippett, Frank Vatrano, Carter Verhaeghe
