Streaking Panthers will get Bjugstad back tonight

1 Comment

It’s a good time to be a fan of the Florida Panthers.

They’re in first place in the Atlantic Division, they’re currently riding an eight-game winning streak and tonight, they’ll welcome their leading goalscorer from last season, Nick Bjugstad, back into their lineup.

The 23-year-old has been out since Dec. 1 because of an upper-body injury.

He’s expected to center Florida’s third line with Brandon Pirri and  Logan Shaw.

If you thought head coach Gerard Gallant would wait until his team loses to insert Bjugstad back into his lineup, guess again.

After tonight’s game, Florida will hit the road for the next two weeks.

The road trip will take them to Buffalo, Ottawa, Edmonton, Vancouver, Calgary and Tampa.
