Hawks just need to come in ready and dictate the play like they have been; I'm sure Tallon has money on the board and we'll see a strong effort from the Panthers. Vokoun has been pretty rough his last two starts, so I expect a good one from him.
This game seems like the perfect streak breaker. A sub .500 team with nothing to lose coming out strong against a team that's been on the road and playing another back-to-backer. In all likelihood we should beat Florida but these are the types of games that end up being the toughest.
Florida is terrible, the Hawks need to smoke them.
I wouldn't expect a blowout if I were you.
I could be wrong, as this roster really sucks, but as a Panthers fan, I can tell you this team is usually involved in one-goal games. Hard-working team with little talent. Plus, they'll probably come out with a strong effort tonight, facing Dale Tallon's former team.
Hopefully you guys can beat us in regulation, though. We don't need anymore points.
