Driedger (groin) will return to the Panthers crease on Thursday.

Driedger has been out since January 16th but will return to the net tonight vs. the Bruins. Driedger played extremely well for the Panthers from late-November up until he got hurt, going 5-2-0 with a 2.35 GAA and .932 SV%. Still, he has a terrible matchup tonight with the Bruins in town and so far they've scored four goals in each game against Florida in 2020.

The Panthers have recalled Chris Driedger from Springfield (AHL).

Driedger has been sidelined by a lower-body injury since mid-January and was recently sent to Springfield on a conditioning stint. He struggled in his only AHL game, allowing five goals on 33 shots in a 6-3 loss to Bridgeport. He could be in-line to start Thursday with Sergei Bobrovsky (lower-body) listed as day-to-day.

Bobrovsky suffered a lower-body injury in warmups on Sunday.

Bobrovsky was scheduled to start vs. the Flames but "tweaked" something during warmups which led to Samuel Montembeault getting the nod for the Panthers. If the Panthers want a chance at making the playoffs, they need a healthy Bobrovsky. Luckily they're off until Thursday, so he should be good-to-go.

Bobrovsky will start Saturday vs. the Blackhawks.

Bobrovsky surrendered four goals on 28 shots in the Panthers loss to the Maple Leafs on Thursday. The veteran has been very inconsistent in the month of February, going 4-7-1 with a 3.33 GAA and .903 SV% in 12 starts. Today he’ll try and keep the Panthers in the playoff hunt with a win over the Blackhawks—he stopped 32 of 35 shots in a 4-3 win in his first start vs. Chicago.

The Panthers have acquired Erik Haula, Lucas Wallmark, Chase Priskie and Eetu Luostarinen from the Hurricanes for Vincent Trocheck.

Haula performed admirably in his third-line role for the Hurricanes after being acquired from Vegas in the off-season. Injuries limited him to just 41 games in a Carolina uniform, but he was able to register 12 goals and 10 assists while playing less than 16 minutes a night. He should play more of a top-six role now with the Panthers. Haula is set to become an unrestricted free-agent on July 1.
