WHEN/WHERE: 7:30; Bank Atlantic Center, Sunrise.

TV/RADIO: Sun Sports; 620-AM.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR: Coach John Tortorella said Thursday that he wasn't sure if John Grahame, who won Wednesday's opener, or former Panther Sean Burke would start in goal. The one who doesn't play likely will play Saturday against the Panthers at the St. Pete Times Forum. Grahame went 2-1 against Florida in 2003-04. ... Marty St. Louis had seven points (four goals) in six games against the Panthers in 2003-04. ... This is the first of eight meetings. The Lightning was 3-2-1 against Florida in 2003-04, but trails the all-time series with an 18-26-10 record with two overtime losses.
