Tuesday November 20:

Wednesday November 21:
Florida Panthers @ Tampa Bay Lighting-The battle of Florida’s two NHL teams. The Lightning sit atop of the Eastern Conference, whereas Florida is tied for last.
Thursday November 22:

Florida Panthers @ Carolina Hurricanes-The last game of a six game road-trip. The Canes sit four points ahead of the Panthers in the East.
Miami Heat @ Chicago Bulls-The Heat go back on the road to the Windy City against DWade’s former team. The Bulls are four games out of the eighth seed in the East.
Saturday November 24:
Marshall Thundering Herd @ FIU Panthers-The Golden Panthers are currently tied for first in their division of C-USA. The Herd are second in the same division. A win for the Panthers would control their destiny, whereas a loss could set up a possible three-way tie.
Charlotte 49ers @ FAU Owls-The Owls are coming into this game after last week’s three point loss to North Texas. The Owls need to win this game if they want to clinch a bowl berth for the second straight year under Lane Kiffin.
Pittsburgh Panthers @ Miami Hurricanes-The Hurricanes’ offense looks to click again this week in their final game of the season. The Canes clinched bowl eligibility last week against Virginia Tech. However, this Pittsburgh team is the Coastal Division champion and will face Clemson for the ACC championship next week.
Chicago Blackhawks @ Florida Panthers-The first game of an eight game home-stand. Both the Hawks and Panthers are looking to get hot to save their currently mediocre seasons.
Sunday November 25:
Miami Dolphins @ Indianapolis Colts-The Dolphins are coming off their bye week whereas the Colts are coming off a big win against the Titans. Ryan Tannehill could possibly return for this match-up. Both teams are looking to keep their playoff hopes alive.
Miami Heat @ Toronto Raptors-The second game of a quick two game road-trip. This will be a tough game as Toronto is the number one seed in the East. This is the first match-up of the season between the two.
