CNBC’s coverage of the 2020-21 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs continues with Monday’s Game 5 between the Tampa Bay Lightning and Florida Panthers. Lightning-Panthers stream coverage begins at 8 p.m. ET on CNBC. You can watch the game online and on the NBC Sports app by clicking here.
“There’s nothing wrong with the message setting and tone setting. That’s part of the game. That’s why we love it,” said Lightning head coach Jon Cooper. “But let’s do it in the parameters of the game, and then there’s guys with stripes on that control that. But if it’s not controlled, stuff like this happens and you have superstars lying on the ice hurt. It just can be frustrating.”
The Panthers will start their third different goaltender in the series as Joel Quenneville turns to rookie Spencer Knight to keep their season alive. Knight made four appearances during the regular season and has not made a start since May 3.
