Uncertainty abounds as Panthers visit Blue Jackets

There will be a lot of uncertainty when the Florida Panthers visit the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday night.

Can the Panthers take it up a notch after having been idle since Jan. 19? They have played just two games -- tied for the fewest in the NHL -- while most teams in the league have completed five, six and even seven contests.

Florida's two most recent games on the schedule were postponed due to COVID-19 issues on the Carolina Hurricanes. Earlier this season, the same thing happened to the Dallas Stars, which also cost the Panthers games, at least in the short term.
