Florida panthers

Matthew Tkachuk said that a successful road trip would result from his club winning a game on the other team’s ice and splitting the series before the Florida Panthers took on the Vegas Golden Knights in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday night.

He acknowledged the importance of his team’s homestand after the game.

The Panthers were outplayed throughout Game 2 and ultimately lost 7-2 in a game that appeared over early in the second period. They are now behind the Golden Knights as they head home.

With just over seven minutes remaining in the second, Florida was down 4-0, and coach Paul Maurice decided Sergei Bobrovsky had had enough of the chaos in front of him and gave him the rest of the night off.Bobrovsky will be back for Game 3 on Thursday night in Sunrise, Maurice said.

The Florida goalies were not to blame for this defeat since Vegas appeared to do anything it pleased in the offensive zone.

With the next two games taking place in South Florida, the Panthers are currently down 2-0 in this best-of-seven series.

Florida will require all the assistance it can get.

Tkachuk remarked, “We have to prepare and give everything into this one game and get momentum back,” after he scored a goal and was sent to the locker room twice for separate infractions.

“We won’t change our strategy. There are obviously some things that need to be changed from the first two games. They are one of the finest home teams, and both during the regular season and the playoffs, they essentially ruled the show at home.We must go back and begin at number one.

From the beginning, Florida pursued Vegas, but Jonathan Marchessault scored on the power play again at 7:05, and Alec Martinez added another goal a little over ten minutes later.

While Vegas has four goals in 11 attempts, the Panthers have failed to score in seven power play opportunities this season.

If Florida wants to win this series when it plays on its own rink, it needs to tighten up several aspects of their game.

In a brief post-game press conference, Maurice observed, “We know there are parts of our game we can improve, but we have to get there real fast.”

“There’s no denying that. Our strategy will be rather straightforward. In this series, I don’t think scoring goals is as important as defending the rush, and tonight we weren’t very good at it.

When the third period began, Florida was behind 4-0, but Anton Lundell’s goal gave the Panthers what seemed to be new life.

The Cardiac Cats were they back?

No, they weren’t.

Just over two minutes later, Marchessault added another goal for Vegas to make the score 5-1.

Following that, there was a lot of mayhem as both teams’ players — primarily Florida players — were told to take an early shower.

The Panthers now have a few days to prepare for Thursday night, which may be the end of their season.

The squad will likely undertake a full practise in the arena on Wednesday before departing for home later tonight.

Right now, Vegas is feeling very good about itself.

They’re halfway there, Tkachuk remarked. Hopefully they are consideringit a little when they arrive in Florida, and perhaps that will be to our advantage.
