Monday Caterwaul: Florida Panthers Open Forum

It’s Tampa Bay Lightning week!

The Florida Panthers enter the final week of training camp with 31 players on the roster, meaning eight will need to be jettisoned before they open the season on October 14 against the injury-riddled Pittsburgh Penguins.

Florida will take on the Tampa Bay Lightning three times to this week to close out the preseason slate. The two teams will meet on Tuesday in a neutral site game at Amway Center in Orlando, again on Thursday at Amalie Arena, and finally, on Saturday night at FLA Live Arena.
