Avalanche end four-game slide with 7-3 win over Panthers

Avalanche end four-game slide with 7-3 win over Panthers

Cats muster just three points on three-game homie The Florida Panthers ended a three-game homestand on a sour note, dropping a 7-3 decision to the Colordao Avalanche, who entered the BB&T Center on a four-game losing streak. Mikko Rantanen opened the scoring 10:56 into the first period. Rantanen swept a loose puck in the slot by James Reimer after Mark Barberio’s shot didn’t get through a scrum in front of the net. Gabriel Landeskog drew the secondary assist on Rantanen’s ninth. Jonathan Huberdeau took a long pass from Keith Yandle and found a streaking Aaron Ekblad, who hammered a...

Haley goal propels Panthers to 6-4 win over Jets

Haley goal propels Panthers to 6-4 win over Jets

Cats end three-game slide, creep past Senators The Florida Panthers ended a three-game losing streak with an exciting, back-and-forth 6-4 win over the Winnipeg Jets in front of a sparse crowd at the BB&T Center. Florida’s defense played a big role in the offensive outburst with Mark Pysyk and Aaron Ekblad getting first period goals to stake the Cats to an early two-goal lead. Pysyk snapped a wrist shot from the top of the left circle between Winnipeg rookie keeper Eric Comrie’s body and blocker to open the scoring 2:48 into the action. The assists on the goal went to grinders Derek...

Wednesday Caterwaul: Florida Panthers Open Forum

Haapala to Springfield, which AHL goalie comes up? The Florida Panthers loaned rookie forward Henrik Haapala to the Springfield Thunderbirds yesterday, opening up a roster spot for someone to serve as James Reimer’s backup. It looks like the Panthers will stay within the organization (hopefully, this is a sign that Roberto Luongo won’t be out for that long) and call up either Harri Sateri or Samuel Montembeault, as fifth man on the depth chart, Evan Cowley has already been summoned to Springfield from ECHL Manchester to fill in the potential vacancy on the AHL squad. Look for the older,...

Panthers gain point, lose Luongo in 5-4 shootout loss to Islanders

Panthers gain point, lose Luongo in 5-4 shootout loss to Islanders

Cats goalie helped off the ice early in the second While the Florida Panthers dropped a 5-4 shootout decision to the New York Islanders last night at the BB&T Center, the most important loss is that of goaltender Roberto Luongo, who was helped off the ice with a painfully obvious lower-body injury after making a kick save 2:31 into the second period. By the looks of things, things,I wouldn’t expect Luongo back anytime soon. Keith Yandle got the Panthers on the board first, pouncing on a turnover with a quick wrist shot that went off Nick Bjugstad and by an unprepared Jaroslav Halak 10:25...

Hanifin’s overtime winner give Hurricanes 3-2 win over Panthers

Carolina defenseman scores with 2 ticks left in extra session The Florida Panthers rallied from a pair of one-goal, third period deficits before eventually falling 3-2 in overtime to the Carolina Hurricanes in Raleigh. The Hurricanes cashed in on its third first period power play at the 14:02 mark to take a lead they would hold until the final frame. Birthday boy Elias Lindholm got the goal, beating James Reimer with a little deflection in front after working a give-and-go with Sebastian Aho.

Aaron Dell stops 39 shots to stymie Cats Once again, the Florida Panthers failed to extend a two-game winning streak, and succeeded in making a backup goalie look like an All-Star in a 2-1 loss to the visiting San Jose Sharks Aaron Dell, in for injured number one Martin Jones, made 39 saves to out-duel Roberto Luongo, and the Sharks got the eventual game-winner from Chris Tierney in the third period. The Panthers opened the scoring with 1:49 left in the first period, after applying sustained pressure after a face-off win, when Colton Sceviour popped the rebound of his redirection of Alex...

Panthers wear down Schneider, Devils for 3-2 win

Jared McCann scores game-winner with 7:15 remaining Jared McCann scored the go-ahead goal with 7:15 remaining in regulation to give the visiting Florida Panthers a well-earned 3-2 win over the New Jersey Devils. The Panthers absolutely dominated the first forty minutes of action, out-shooting the Devils by a huge 31-10 margin, but they could only solve goaltender Corey Schneider once. Aleksander Barkov got that goal, shorthanded, with 2:40 left in the second period. Michael Matheson flipped the puck to Barkov and he broke out on a 2-on-1 rush with Colton Sceviour. Barkov wisely elected to...

Three points from Toews, 37 saves from Crawford doom Cats Jonathan Toews scored a goal and added two assists, and goaltender Corey Crawford made 37 saves as the visiting Chicago Blackhawks skated past the Florida Panthers by a 4-1 count on Saturday. Looking like they remembered every bit of the pasting the Panthers put on them in March, the Blackhawks dominated the first period, peppering Roberto Luongo with 21 shots and scoring twice. John Hayden got the game’s first goal at the 9:25 mark. Hayden found a soft spot in Florida’s defense in the high slot and snapped the puck into the back...
