from George Richards of Florida Hockey Now,
It’s not often that you see a contending NHL team have not one but two rookies perform in a starring role as was the case Tuesday when both Spencer Knight and Anton Lundell helped lead the Florida Panthers to a 4-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Usually if a team has two standout 20-year-olds, that means the team is rebuilding.
Which is what the Panthers are.
A legitimate contender.
With two pretty good rookies.
“They are great,” Florida team captain Sasha Barkov said following the game. “They are special, special players. We’re lucky to have those guys on our team.”
The Panthers played a good game on Tuesday, with Knight getting his first start of the season and pretty much picking up where he left off when we last saw him.
