They also lead the league in home wins (10) and points (22).

2 Last Time They Met

These teams played earlier this month in Sunrise, with the Rangers recording a 5-4 overtime win.

Kevin Shattenkirk scored two goals, including the overtime game-winner.

3 On the Prowl

The Rangers have dominated the Panthers of late.

They own a 10-1-2 record against Florida dating back to the 2013-14 season and have earned at least one point in 17 of their last 21 games against them.

4 King Henrik

Henrik Lundqvist has started 12 consecutive games and is likely to start his 13th tonight.

Over his last four games (all wins), Lundqvist has posted a 1.22 GAA, a .960 SV% and one shutout. He owns a lifetime record of 24-10-2 against Florida.

5 Zucc!

Mats Zuccarello enters tonight’s game on a four-game point streak (one goal, four assists) and has 11 points in his last 12 games.

In 18 career games against the Panthers, Zuccarello has 19 points (nine goals, 10 assists).

6 TeamWork Makes the DreamWork
