Lightning, Panthers battle for home ice in playoffs

If the Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning don't already know each other pretty well, the two in-state rivals will soon enough.

Not only will the Lightning visit the Panthers in Sunrise, Fla., for a two-game series to conclude the 2020-21 regular season, the two teams will open the playoffs against each other.

It will be the first time the two in-state rivals will face each other in a playoff series. The Lightning joined the NHL in 1992, Florida a year later.
