Florida Panthers DFS Spin

The Florida Panthers are 0-25 on the power play in the 2022 Stanley Cup playoffs. While the lack of scoring with the man-advantage did not hurt them in the opening round versus Washington, the Panthers are down two games to none against Tampa Bay with Games 3 and 4 in Tampa. They are 0-7 against the Lightning. "We've thrown everything at least discussion-wise" Brunette said. "We're trusting our best players to make a play and hindsight'll be 20-20 and I could be kicking myself all summer or they find it and we get moving, but there's tweaks we can do. ...Everything's on the table. We'll try to figure something out, but I really feel like it just takes one. But what the heck do I know?"
