Scouting Report (courtesy of Winners & Whiners)

The Chicago Blackhawks travel to Sunrise, FL to take on the Florida Panthers inside of the FLA Live Arena. These two teams played last month and the Panthers won, 5-2. This game doesn’t have any playoff implications, as the Blackhawks have underperformed this season and the Panthers are already in.

The Blackhawks are coming into this game after falling to the Buffalo Sabres, 6-5. Chicago struggled on the defensive end of the ice in this game. The Sabres don’t have a powerful offense and they still found success against the Blackhawks.

The Panthers are coming into this game after defeating the Montreal Canadiens, 7-4. Florida’s offense is clicking right now and they are extremely tough to stop.
