If the NHL resumes the 2019-20 season then Aleksander Barkov believes the Panthers should get a chance to play.
"I don’t think it would be right if we’re left out," Barkov said. "We are close to a playoff spot and have 13 games left. We just started playing as well as we did before the All-Star break, the bye week. We were feeling pretty good, playing with confidence." Florida was outside of the playoff picture going into the pause, but the team was in the hunt for third in the Atlantic Division or a Wild Card spot. Barkov emphasized that safety and health is what's most important right now, but he "would love to play as many games as possible" if the NHL resumes play. Mar 30 5:46 pm (EST)
