Starting Goalies:

The Panthers won three of four on their most recent road trip before losing 3-1 to visiting Philadelphia last time out.

The Blue Jackets are coming off a solid 5-3 victory at Tampa Bay on Friday. Columbus scored on the power play, while short-handed and got the winner from Brandon Saad during a 4-on-4 situation versus the Lightning. Sergei Bobrovsky recorded the win on Friday and owns an 8-1-1 all-time record with a 2.14 goals-against average and .935 save percentage against the Panthers.

Saad, Cam Atkinson and Alexander Wennberg each recorded a goal and an assist on Friday as Columbus improved to 8-2-2 this month – its best November in franchise history. Atkinson shares the team lead in points with captain Nick Foligno and Wennberg at 19 after posting 15 in 12 games this month.

Veteran Jaromir Jagr and Aleksander Barkov were part of one of the most productive lines in the league last season, but the duo has struggled to put the puck in the net in 2016-17, with just four goals between them.

Florida C Jonathan Marchessault leads the team with a career-high nine goals and 16 points – two fewer than his total in 45 games with Tampa Bay last season.
