Lightning vs Panthers


The Tampa Bay Lightning are expected to head home with a two-game lead after defeating the Florida Panthers in Game 1. They are led by Steven Stamkos, who has been performing well so far in the playoffs with his five points. In Game 1, the team also got a boost from their impressive performance in the third period, as they scored three goals to cap a 4-1 victory.

Right-wing Nikita Kucherov was also a big contributor to the team, as he scored two goals and an assist in Game 1. The defense has been playing well, as they are allowing only 31.3 shots per game. If the unit can continue to play at this level, it will be plausible to make it 2-0.


The Florida Panthers have been playing well so far in the playoffs, and they need to win Game 2 to avoid falling behind in the series. They are led by Jonathan Huberdeau, who has been performing well so far in the tournament with four points. However, they are still struggling on the power play, as they allowed three goals on six attempts.

Anthony Duclair scored two goals and had two assists in Game 1. The team's defense has been struggling so far in the playoffs, as they are allowing 3.29 goals per game. If they can improve on this aspect, they can win Game 2 and take a commanding lead in the upcoming series.
