Scout­ing re­port: The Pan­thers host the Dal­las Stars for just one game be­fore hit­ting the road again with a three-game trip to Cal­i­for­nia later this week. Florida has lost six of its past seven games af­ter Satur­day night’s 2-1 loss in New Jer­sey. Af­ter a home­s­tand that saw the Light­ning and Blue Jack­ets score a com­bined 15 goals against the Pan­thers, Florida’s de­fense has stiff­ened up in re­cent games. Against Buf­falo on Fri­day night, it only al­lowed 25 shots on goal. Against the Devils on Satur­day night, it only al­lowed 21 shots on goal. … The Stars come to Sun­rise af­ter play­ing in Carolina on Mon­day night. En­ter­ing Mon­day, Dal­las de­fense­man John Kling­berg led all NHL de­fense­men with 18 points (four goals, 14 as­sists). … Pan­thers for­wards Derek MacKen­zie (lower body) and Jared McCann (lower body) will likely miss Tues­day’s game. Jonathan Hu­berdeau (sick) missed Florida’s prac­tice on Mon­day, but is prob­a­ble to play today.
