We go over how you can watch Friday’s ESPN game between the Lightning and Panthers.
ESPN+ will host Friday’s matchup between the Tampa Bay Lightning and Florida Panthers with the puck set to drop at 7:30 p.m. ET. The game will take place at FLA Live Arena in Sunrise, Florida.
The Lightning are the most surprising undefeated team to start the season (and perhaps any season). Philadelphia just came from behind to defeat the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 on Tuesday night. The Flyers continue their Florida tour against the Panthers, who got some bad news on Wednesday. The Flyers should stat Felix Sandstrom in net after Carter Hart played last night.
The Panthers will be without top defenseman Aaron Ekblad for this game. He’s been placed on long-term injured reserve due to a lower-body injury sustained in Monday’s loss to the Boston Bruins. With Ekblad sidelined, the Panthers should lean more heavily on the forward group and Gustav Forsling.
