There's plenty of hometown sports action in South Florida this weekend.

The Hurricanes open Atlantic Coast Conference play this Friday night against Notre Dame. Miami (6-7) has gotten off to a rough start in the final year of the Jim Morris era. First pitch against the Fighting Irish is at 7 p.m. Friday, followed by a doubleheader Saturday beginning at 1 p.m.

A little north up Biscayne Boulevard, the Heat will host Washington on Saturday night for the second time in three games. They dropped a 117-113 decision to the Wizards in overtime Tuesday, but this time it's in Miami, where the Heat have won three in a row at home. Tipoff is set for 7:30 p.m. Saturday.

Florida Panthers center Aleksander Barkov (16) celebrates with teammates Nick Bjugstad (27) and Evgenii Dadonov (63) after his goal during the third period against the New Jersey Devils, March 1, 2018, in Sunrise, Florida. The Panthers won 3-2.

The Panthers stay at home for Saturday night's game against the New York Rangers. Florida is vying for a playoff spot, having won eight in a row. Can the Panthers make it nine?

Fort Lauderdale will be bustling with bicyclists and runners this Sunday.

The sixth annual Las Olas International Triathlon will pedal through Fort Lauderdale Beach between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m.

Not too far away, Irish eyes will be smiling at all the runners participating in the Fort Lauderdale Shamrock Run. The four-mile course will bring about traffic delays on Las Olas Boulevard and Broward Boulevard, so if you're not wearing your running shoes, you may want to avoid the area.
