The two teams last met on the ice on 05/03 of 2022 and the clash ended in a 4-2 away win for Washington Capitals on the road. Tom Wilson was on the ice for just 1:31, but managed to put his name among the scorers. He sent 2 shots towards the opponents’ net and one of those made it through the goalie. Claude Giroux tried his best for the Florida Panthers. He scored his only attempt on goal for a 17:39 of playing time. Washington’s triumph may also be attributed to the team’s netminder. Vitek Vanecek stopped 30 of the 32 shots, which was enough to seal the victory. Sergei Bobrovsky was between the sticks for the Panthers and parried 34 of all the 37 shots he faced, but that proved insufficient for the win. Washington Capitals are boasting a better H2H balance across the last five match-ups with Florida Panthers, registering 3 victories, while losing 2 times in the process.
