Sluggish Senators lose a key game to Panthers

Panthers 4, Senators 2 No Boyes, no Bjugstad, no Bobbylu (Roberto Luongo). It was a formula for success for the Ottawa Senators but they could not take advantage, losing to a Florida team led by a 43-year-old, a third-string goalie and a lot of youthful enthusiasm. In a bid to re-energize his suddenly struggling team, […]

Marchand Madness: Shorthanders, Part Deux

Another go at Marchand's bread and butter, the short-handed goal. In the first half of this match-up, we saw Marchand's signature Stanley Cup Finals moment, scoring a shortie on Roberto Luongo to seal Game 3 of the series. This time around, we're going to look at a couple more memorable moments with Brad on the PK in... Round One: Short-handed Goals, Part II 2. Marchand vs. The Entire LA Kings Team, 2014 In January of 2014, Boston was in the middle of a Presidents' Trophy-winning season. But at the start of this game, the Bruins had won just 2 of their first 6 games of the new year. On...

Bruins Bulletless In Another SO, Lose 2-1

Another key game. Another close game. Another SO. Another loss. Well, we knew to expect a close game. It was definitely that. Both Tuukka Rask and Robert Luongo were in top form, with Luongo making more saves and Rask making a couple highlight reel-worthy stops. Florida's adopted style was on display in terms of choking off the middle for much of the game, though the Bruins would have easy had the lead in this one early if it weren't for Luongo stopping a lot of chances from the slot. Through two periods, while SOG were 19-17, the Bruins had more than doubled Florida's scoring chance total....

Luongo returns but is it too late for Panthers' playoff hopes?

Panthers drop 3-2 heart-breaker to visiting Canadiens

Power play goes 0-for-4, surrenders shorty in latest frustrating loss. For the second straight game, the Florida Panthers outplayed one of the best in the Eastern Conference and again came up just short, falling 3-2 this time to the Montreal Canadiens at an almost-full BB&T Center. Dustin Tokarski earned First Star honors for his 41-save performance. Florida's Dan Ellis, making his sixth straight start, made 22 stops and saw his record drop to 3-2-1 in aid of injured Roberto Luongo and Al Montoya. The Cats got off to a good start before allowing Montreal to start to tilt the ice as the...

Rangers, Talbot withstand Panthers' barrage in 2-1 win at Madison Square Garden

Cats outplay leagues's top team, but can't find the back of the net enough. The Florida Panthers overcame another lousy first period to outplay the New York Rangers over the final forty minutes, but couldn't find the back of the net enough in a 2-1 loss that made their playoff aspirations seem that much more unlikely. Cam Talbot stopped 38 of 39 shots to outduel Dan Ellis, who finished with 32 saves in his fifth straight in place of regular netminders Roberto Luongo and Al Montoya. The Rangers had the better of the play in the first, doubling the Cats in shots 12-6, and came up with the...
