Panthers coach Gerard Gallant preaches equality among lines

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. -- When asking Florida Panthers head coach Gerard Gallant about the team's formidable fourth line, don't expect his response to come without candor. "That's not a fourth line," Gallant said adamantly with a smirk after the team's so-called fourth line notched two goals in a 4-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday. "It'...

Bruins-Panthers Notes: Roberto Luongo Winless In Last Five Games At TD Garden

BOSTON — Years from now, when we look back at a highlight reel of Roberto Luongo’s best NHL moments, there’s a good chance none of them will have happened at TD Garden. The Florida Panthers’ starting goaltender entered the 2014-15 season with an 0-4-0 record, an .816 save percentage and a 6.35 goals against average in his last four starts in Boston (including the playoffs...

Florida Panthers lost $114,000 a day last year

It’s time to talk about the financial situation in Florida again. The Panthers are a team in the red, but that’s not exactly new information. If you’ve seen the attendance figures so far this year, you’re aware that they’re averaging just over 9,000 fans per night through their first four home games.

14. Florida Panthers at Boston Bruins. Enemy Twos-itory

Twos is back but this time he’s wearing a Florida Panthers jersey. The weird thing is that while I’ve missed Iginla and Boychuk like crazy, I haven’t really missed – or even acknowledged – that Shawn Thornton is no longer a Bruin. I guess this is inevitably what happens when you replace a fourth liner with a fourth liner. Thornton is averaging about 9 minutes of ice time...

The Florida Panthers are bringing you the glorious sounds of hockey in Spanish

The Florida Panthers are a franchise that struggles both on and off the ice in South Florida. They’ve been the subject of attendance shaming and accused of not being able to appeal to  their area. They also have an arena that’s not in Miami proper, but the middle of nowhere in Sunrise. You can’t blame them, then, for trying some interesting ideas. Including doing three Spanish...

Panthers have pathetic attendance at home game

What’s it like when an NHL game is held and almost no one bothers to show up? Just ask the Florida Panthers.
