The Capitals turned to Vitek Vanecek in net for the sixth out of nine games this season against one of the NHL's most high-powered offensive attacks. In the loss, Vanecek stopped 23 of 26 shots — one of the goals he allowed came on a 5-on-3 powerplay for the Lightning. ... Read more.

CAPITALS VS. PANTHERS PLAYERS TO WATCH

Capitals: Evgeny Kuznetsov, C (9 games, 5 goals, 8 assists): Kuznetsov currently leads the Capitals in assists, passing Tom Wilson after the 29-year-old notched one in Monday's loss to Tampa. Kuznetsov trails only Alex Ovechkin in both goals and points this season, too. He'll look to continue his hot streak on Thursday against Florida. 

Panthers: Aleksander Barkov, C (9 game, 5 goals, 5 assists): Barkov has played a major role in Florida's hot start, as he's second on the Panthers in points and second on the team in goals. The 2013 No. 2 overall pick will look to continue his torrid start to the season against the Capitals.
