The NHL announced the full schedule for the upcoming 2016-17 season on Tuesday and with that came the Panthers’ campaign which begins at home against the Devils on October 13th.
After smashing franchise record after franchise record during last season’s schedule, the Panthers will be back at it again in October, and once again, things won’t come easy. Before the regular season ends on April 9th at Washington, the Panthers will play in 15 sets of back-to-backs, meet the Islanders and defending Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins 3 times each, endure a season-long 6-game road trip, and face the rival Tampa Bay Lightning a total of 4 times.
The Panthers’ website has a nice overview of the big games which you can check out here, and you can find the full 82-game schedule by clicking here. As always, stay tuned to COTP for more off-season coverage of the Panthers.
