The Panthers are four points out of a playoff spot right now and largely due to the stability of Roberto Luongo between the pipes.

They only have one more win than the Toronto Maple Leafs but they’ve gained a losers point from overtime or a shootout twelve times – tied with Los Angeles for the most in the league.

If Jonathan Bernier can put together a performance that mirrors the last two games the Leafs will have a good chance to get a rare victory.

The Panthers offense is underwhelming – but the Leafs will have to beat a pretty good goaltender at the other end of the ice.

The Leafs have a significant advantage on special teams and they’ll have to take advantage of that given their struggles at 5v5 lately.
