LAST SEASON: 38-26-18, 94 points. Lost to New Jersey 4-3 in first round.
COACH: Kevin Dineen, 2nd season with Panthers, 38-26-18; 2nd overall in NHL.
ADDED: D Filip Kuba, C Peter Mueller, RW George Parros, RW Alex Kovalev.
LOST: D Jason Garrison, LW Wojtek Wolski, C John Madden.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Kovalev. He's still strong and talented, and could be the perfect fit for a second line that sometimes struggled with scoring a year ago. Plus, considering how much Florida struggles with shootouts, someone like Kovalev could pay immediate dividends.
OUTLOOK: Most of the team that won the Southeast Division title last season is back. The Panthers might have one of the best 1-2 goaltending combos in the league with Jose Theodore and Scott Clemmensen. If health isn't an issue, the Panthers could go deeper in the playoffs this time around.
LAST SEASON: 37-35-10, 84 points. Missed playoffs by finishing 10th in Eastern Conference.
COACH: Claude Noel, 2nd season with Jets, 37-35-10; 3rd overall, 47-43-16 in NHL.
ADDED: C Olli Jokinen, LW Alexei Ponikarovsky, G Al Montoya.
LOST: G Chris Mason, LW Tanner Glass, RW Tim Stapleton, D Mark Flood.
PLAYER TO WATCH: After nearly making the team out of training camp last season, 19-year-old center Mark Scheifele is eager for another shot this year. He's a dependable two-way forward who's enjoyed a solid first half of the season playing for Barrie of the Ontario Hockey League.
OUTLOOK: Will the honeymoon of the NHL's return to Winnipeg be over after last season? The former Atlanta Thrashers are still stuck in what's becoming a tough Southeast Division. And until the NHL realigns its divisions, the Jets are still stuck with a grueling travel schedule that could wear them down in a tightly packed 48-game schedule.

*Panthers-Jets Preview* =======================
By ALAN FERGUSON STATS Writer
Florida (3-5-0) at Winnipeg (3-4-1), 8:00 p.m. EDT
The Florida Panthers snapped out of a prolonged slump last week with a flurry of late goals against the Winnipeg Jets.
That earned them some payback for their most recent visit to Winnipeg, which was one to forget.
The Panthers will try for a better showing there and a third straight win in Tuesday night's rematch with the Jets, losers of three in a row.
Florida (3-5-0) was outscored 23-5 during a five-game losing streak but matched that output in the third period of a 6-3 victory over the Jets (3-4-1) on Thursday. The Panthers registered four goals in the final 8:40.
Florida then rallied for a 4-3 win over Buffalo on Sunday, ending an 0-3-0 start on the road.
As in the victory over Winnipeg, each goal was scored by a different player. Brian Campbell and Peter Mueller were the only two to score in both games, while Tomas Kopecky had a team-best four points with one goal and three assists.
"We're starting to come as a team a bit more now and have faith in coming back," said Campbell, who had the go-ahead goal in the third Sunday. "Earlier in the season, we didn't have a whole lot of faith and confidence. But now we're starting to see our team develop."
The Panthers will try to keep building their confidence in the second game of a four-game trip as they look to avoid another miserable effort in Winnipeg. Florida lost 7-0 there March 1, giving up five goals in the third period.
With the Jets having been outscored 18-9 in the last three games, though, the Panthers would appear to have a good chance to extend their roll.
Winnipeg lost 8-3 to Tampa Bay on Friday, trailing 6-0 after the first 26 minutes. Ondrej Pavelec gave up five goals on 14 shots and Al Montoya allowed three on 11.
"Sometimes you've got to hit rock bottom or whatever to figure out that you've had enough of this stuff," coach Claude Noel said. "Our job is to find solutions to these things, and for me, I know how our team can play and that's what we have to get back to doing."
The Jets gave up three power-play goals in the first period Friday and have allowed opponents to convert nine of 18 opportunities in the last four games.
Florida was 3 of 6 with the man advantage Thursday and Alex Kovalev scored the go-ahead goal on one of those opportunities.
"We've got two choices," Winnipeg forward Alexei Ponikarovsky said. "Choice 1 is to pout and complain and moan about taking too many penalties. The second choice is go home, improve collectively and individually. That's going to have to be our focus."
The Jets have won their past two home games.
Defenseman Dustin Byfuglien, who had two goals and two assists in his last three games, has missed the past two contests with a lower-body injury.
Evander Kane powered the March 1 rout with two goals and two assists.
The Jets haven't lost four straight since an 0-2-3 skid Nov. 5-12, 2011.
