2) Road Struggles
The Florida Panthers have not fared well on the road this season. Sorry, that is too generous. The Florida Panthers have been awful on the road this year. The Panthers have compiled a 1-8-1 record away from home with their only win coming against the Dallas Stars in the first game of the season. That was October 3rd. So yea its been awhile.
To make matters worse, the Panthers are on the second half of what will probably prove to be their toughest back-to-back set this season. The other contenders for toughest back-to-backs are:
On the road Vs. Detroit and Chicago: December 7-8
On the road Vs. LA and Anaheim: 22-23
Either way, after already losing the first game of the back-to-back, 3-2 vs Minnesota last night, the Panthers will be looking to do whatever they can to steal a point or two against a very good Avalanche team.
