The Florida Panthers play host to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Saturday night NHL action.
The surging Pittsburgh Penguins couldn’t slowdown the Tampa Bay Lightning in a 6-3 defeat at Amalie Arena Thursday hat put a halt to their four game winning streak. The Lighting offense received a pair of goals from both Anton Stralman and Ondrej Palat with Alex Killorn and Tyler Johnson also lighting the lamp. Johnson added a pair of assists and Ben Bishop was just strong enough in the nets to up the Lightning to 29-18-4 in their 8th straight win on home ice. Sydney Crosby, Matt Cullen and Patric Hornqvist found the back of the net for the Penguins while Marc-Andre Fleury gave up four goals on 14 shots before getting the yank in favor of Jeff Zatkoff who allowed a goal on 14 shots.
