Hey everybody, the Leafs play the Florida Panthers tonight in Florida. Hopefully they come out flying tonight and not have another terrible start like they did against the Coyotes. Also, let’s hope they play the whole game a hell of a lot better than they did against the Coyotes. They’ll need more energy for sure.
The Leafs lineup should be unchanged and the lines should be the same as they were against the Coyotes.. As everyone knows, Babcock likes his lines to be consistent.
However I just saw that Soshnikov is in the lineup and Moore is out so, not sure how that affects the lineup. Even though it’s not my fault, I will say the typical Canadian ‘Sorry’.
I haven’t seen anything tweeted out at the time I wrote this but according to @dailyfaceoff they are probably something like:
The Florida Panthers lines should look like this:
Players to look for in tonight’s game.
- Vincent Trochek leads the team with 9 goals and
- Barkov, Trochek and Huberdeau are all tied for the team lead in points with 21
- Keith Yandle leads the team in ATOI with 24:01 with Ekblad a close second with 23:53
The Panthers PP% is 16.7 for 23rd in the league and their PK% is 72.0 for 30 th. So getting some power play time should really help the Leafs even more than usual tonight.
The Panther also average 33.9 shot per game, 35.3 against and have a record of 7-11-0-2 for 16 points.
Have a good one.
