Florida will be without talented rookie and leading scorer Aleksander Barkov tonight when it hosts the Avalanche in Sunrise.
Barkov, who tops all Panthers with 24 points this year, will miss his first game of the season after suffering a lower-body injury against Buffalo on Tuesday.

O'Reilly had a goal and an assist to lift the Colorado Avalanche over the Florida Panthers 3-2 on Friday night.
O'Reilly wasted little time in making his presence felt. His goal came at 1:34 in. Matt Duchene missed a wraparound shot but O'Reilly grabbed the rebound and sneaked it past Thomas in the corner of the net to make it 1-0.
John Madden is no longer a fan of the Pro Bowl. He thinks it's a joke and that the all-star game will end soon. Here's audio of his segment.
