Head coach Kevin Dineen gives his thoughts on the Panthers' 3-2 overtime loss to the Wild.

Panthers 3, Canadiens 2, SO

Wojtek Wolski carried the Florida Panthers to a big lead in the division on a night their closest rival lost. Wolski scored in regulation and added the only goal of the shootout to help the Florida Panthers boost their playoff hopes with a 3-2 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night. That left the Panthers five points clear of the Capitals, who lost 5-1 to Buffalo...

Video- Panthers Lose A Possible Point In A Matter Of Seconds

from George Richards of On Frozen Pond, The Panthers got no help from their friends in Boston on Thursday night – and they sure didn’t help themselves. Yes, Florida got a point out of its 3-2 overtime loss to the host Wild. But, for the third time in a week, the Panthers left that extra point sitting on the ice. The Wild scored with 30.3 seconds left to force overtime then...

Eklund: Could Florida Repeat the Magic of '96?

There is nothing scarier in the Stanley Cup Playoffs than a team that has no pressure on it apart from the pressure it puts on itself. Here in Philadelphia, there was a lot of talk about whether the club would be best served to drop from the fifth spot to sixth and play the Southeast Division winner. Many in New Jersey seem quite content with the likely matchup against the Florida...

Panthers blow lead in 3rd, lose to Wild in OT

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Jose Theodore and the Florida Panthers let a point slip away. Trying to pull five points ahead of the Washington Capitals in the Atlantic Division with a game in hand and five to play, Florida led Minnesota by one in the final minute. But the Wild, already eliminated from playoff contention, weren't finished. With Niklas Backstrom pulled from his net...

Mikael Samuelsson also scored in regulation for Florida, which outshot Montreal 36-29. The Panthers ended a three-game winless streak and completed a four-game sweep of...

John Jaeckel: Hockey is A Funny Sport

Follow me @jaeckel Eklund had a blog the other day positing the question as to whether this year’s Florida Panthers could replicate the magic of the ’96 Panthers—and take the Stanley Cup. I’m not here to comment on that beyond saying this: hockey, especially at this time of year, often defies expectations and predictions. Suitably, for a sport played...

Tom Gilbert gets stick of Kris Versteeg stuck in his earhole (Video)

During Thursday night's NHL game between the Florida Panthers and Minnesota Wild, Wild defenseman Tom Gilbert was very lucky not to be injured after a high stick by Panthers forward Kris Versteeg became stuck in Gilbert's earhole. It happened in the third period just after a faceoff on the Wild end of the ice, and play was stopped as Gilbert went down on the ice to protect...

Panthers-Wild Preview

A road trip against mainly lackluster competition would only seem to aid the Florida Panthers' quest for their first Southeast Division title and first playoff berth in 12 years. The Panthers play the second of those four straight road games Thursday night against the Minnesota Wild. Florida (37-24-15) had lost three in a row heading into Tuesday's game in Montreal with...

Dan Spiegel: Panthers Look For Breathing Room Against Montreal

Good teams beat the teams they're supposed to beat, especially at this time of year. For the Panthers, nothing comes easy. After a season-high 5-game winning streak, Florida has now lost three consecutive games to bad teams in the Hurricanes, Oilers, and Islanders. While the last two losses were in shootouts, it does not sit any better with this team or coach Kevin Dineen...
