The Tampa Bay Lightning finished last year as the leaders of the regular season overall table, but performed poorly in the playoffs, getting swept in the first round. This year they are looking to finish what they started and actually lift the Stanley Cup. With Steven Stamkos leading the offense and the likes of Ondřej Palát in the goals, the team is sure to perform well this year.
The Florida Panthers are coming off a rather disappointing 2018-19 season but performed relatively well in preseason matchups. The team is looking to take this momentum into the regular season. But will they be able to do so against the heavily favoured Tampa Bay Lightning?
