The Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning will cap off their three-game series with the preseason finale for both teams tonight at BB&T Center.
Florida won the first game in Tampa by a 3-2 count before the Lightning struck back for 6-2 win in Orlando. Both clubs are now 3-3 in the preseason.
Nothing official yet, but look for James Reimer to face Andrei Vasilevskiy since Roberto Luongo and Louis Domingue were the goaltenders on Thursday.
This is the final chance for bubble players to impress their respective coaching and personnel staffs, so expect a spirited game.
The Panthers have decisions to make at defense, where surprises like Jacob MacDonald and Julian Melchiori remain on the roster, and among its bottom-six ,which we knew was going to flat-out battle from the beginning.
