|12/1/2018||at FLORIDA|| |
|FLORIDA: LAST SEASON: 44-30-8, 96 points. Fourth in Atlantic Division.
COACH: Bob Boughner (second season, second NHL season).
ADDED: LW Mike Hoffman, RW Troy Brouwer.
LOST: C Connor Brickley, RW Radim Vrbata
PLAYER TO WATCH: C Aleksander Barkov. He's coming off a career-best 78-point year, is now the team's captain and is simply electric in shootouts ' with 16 scores in 22 attempts over the last three seasons. Barkov just turned 23, and Florida sees him as its cornerstone for years to come.
OUTLOOK: It's playoffs-or-bust for the Panthers, who have been saying for years that they have a young and promising core. It's time to deliver on that promise.
|TAMPA BAY: LAST SEASON: 54-23-5, 113 points. Won Atlantic Division. |
LOST to Washington Capitals in Eastern Conference Finals.
COACH: Jon Cooper (sixth NHL season, 242-143-40, 36-28 playoffs).
ADDED: F Andy Andreoff.
LOST: F Chris Kunitz, G Peter Budaj, D Jake Dotchin.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Nikita Kucherov. Kucherov has taken the mantle from Steven Stamkos to become the Lightning's most dynamic player. He scored a career-high 40 goals in 2016-17 and followed it up with 39 goals and 100 points last season. Kucherov signed an 8-year, $76 million contract extension in July.
OUTLOOK: Even with the surprising announcement of Steve Yzerman stepping down as general manager, it's business as usual for the Lightning. The roster remains largely unchanged from last season and another deep playoff run is expected as long as Kucherov, Stamkos, Brayden Point, Victor Hedman and Andrei Vasilevskiy stay healthy.
|Panthers aim to continue climb vs. Lightning|
TAMPA, Fla. -- The Florida Panthers look to continue climbing up the Atlantic Division standings when they travel to Tampa to face the Lightning on Wednesday.
But the Panthers will have to move forward without All-Star center Vincent Trocheck, potentially for the rest of the season.
Trocheck, who has three goals and 14 points in 18 games, suffered a gruesome leg injury on Monday in Ottawa when he hit the end boards upright but had his leg bend sideways under his weight as fell to the ice. Trocheck needed to be taken off the ice via a stretcher and on Tuesday reportedly underwent surgery to repair "significant" damage to his right leg, according to TSN's Daren Dreger.
The loss will be a difficult void to fill for the Panthers, who have won six of the past eight games.
"He plays in every situation for us, so that's a big loss," Boughner told NHL.com regarding Trocheck. "We're going to have to come together as a team and figure it out until he comes back."
Rookie forward Juho Lammikko expects to see some additional playing time in Trocheck's absence and the former third-round pick is coming off a four-assist game against Ottawa, setting a franchise rookie record for assists in a game. Lammikko is also just the sixth rookie in the past 10 seasons to record four or more assists in a game.
Lammikko logged a career-high 15:51 of ice time.
"When we lost Troch, Lammer had to a bunch of different lines," Boughner told floridapanthers.com. "It was a great night for him. I'm happy for him. He works hard. He plays the right way. He's a detailed kid and he spent his time down in Springfield. He's punched the clock and earned everything he's getting right now."
Mike Hoffman, meanwhile, carries a 16-game scoring streak in to the game against Tampa Bay. He has nine goals and 10 assists during the franchise-record scoring streak.
Tampa Bay returns home from a four-game trip after dropping the finale at Nashville on Monday to fall into second place in the Atlantic Division behind the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The Lightning are dealing with injuries of their own. Already without All-Star goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy, Tampa Bay saw fourth-line center Cedric Paquette miss the last game with a lower-body injury and is considered day-to-day. Defenseman Anton Stralman has missed the past five games with an upper-body injury, but resumed skating with the team at the end of the road trip and is questionable to return against the Panthers.
Tampa Bay will have to continue to ride goaltender Louis Domingue, who is 2-1 since Vasilevskiy was injured marking the first time Domingue has made consecutive starts with the Lightning.
"It's fun to be playing again and getting a couple of games in a row like that," Domingue said after Monday's game. "It's a lot easier. It's crazy how it makes a difference to be playing. You just get in the rhythm, you just don't think. It was a lot of fun. I definitely feel sharper. It's different. I just don't think. I just execute my game plan that I applied in practice. I just continue building on my games. I feel really comfortable."
