The two-time reigning Stanley Cup champions against the recently crowned Presidents' Trophy winners -- that's the juicy matchup set for the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The Tampa Bay Lightning and Florida Panthers begin their best-of-seven Sunshine State series on Tuesday night at the Panthers' home in Sunrise, Fla.

By eliminating the Toronto Maple Leafs in Saturday's Game 7, the Lightning became just the sixth franchise to win nine straight playoff series. The last team to do it was the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2018.
