The Lightning are looking to extend their current win streak to three. On the other side of the ice, the Panthers will be looking to break their two-game losing streak with a win over Tampa Bay. Both teams are hungry, each for their own reasons. Taking into consideration their well-defined rivalry, this is going to be a volatile game.

While the Florida Panthers are coming off of a tough 3-1 loss at the hands of the Buffalo Sabres, the Lightning are coming off of a well-fought 3-2 win over those very same Sabres. While the momentum may be in the favor of the Bolts, I have always said that underestimating the underdog is a quick way to meet your defeat. As usual, they need to approach this game just like they would if they were playing a team like the Bruins or the Blackhawks.

Especially while they are on the road, the Lightning are going to need their Thunder to give them the Bolt jolt they need to come out on top.

Are you ready, Bolts Nation? It’s time to BE THE THUNDER!

Puck drops at 5:00 p.m. All together now…LET’S GO LIGHTNING!!!
