Condon, Senators blank Panthers 2-0

Offensive struggles continue to hamstring Cats Mike Condon made twenty-four saves to lead the Ottawa Senators to a 2-0 win over the Florida Panthers at Canadian Tire Center on Saturday night. The loss dropped the Cats record to 1-2-1 on its current six-game road trip that still has stops to make in Boston and Philadelphia. Ottawa scored twice in a 19-second span of the first period to provide the game’s only goals. Erik Karlsson opened the scoring at the 6:46 mark, taking advantage of some shoddy coverage from both Aaaron Ekbald and Jussi Jokinen to rap Ryan Dzingel’s centering pass by...

Panthers' Bjugstad returns to center

Barkov hopes to bust out, 'big time', after ending goal drought

Panthers Looking to Take Big Step Forward

Will coaching change get the team to the playoffs? It's a story so weird, even non-fans of hockey are aware that it happened. The Florida Panthers literally dumped coach Gerard Gallant on the side of the road after a 3-2 loss in Carolina to the Hurricanes. The news broke when Gallant and assistant coach Mike Kelly were spotted waiting for a taxi outside of PNC Arena after the game on Sunday. In that game, Florida took an early 2-0 lead, but gave it all up in just a few minutes midway through the second and failed to come back. That dropped them to 11-10-1, which isn't a pretty start, but...

Tom Rowe gets his first win as Cats’ head coach Say it ain’t so, Joe! Barring a playoff match up this spring, the Florida Panthers made their last trip to Joe Louis Arena a successful one with a 2-1 overtime win over the Detroit Red Wings. The win was Tom Rowe’s first as an NHL head coach and came in his second game since replacing Gerard Gallant behind the bench. Florida fell behind early when Aaron Ekblad’s fancy between the legs pass in his own end rebounded off Aleksander Barkov and wound up on the stick of Henrik Zetterberg. Zetterberg collected the puck in the left circle and...
