Outside the Boxscore:
It's not everyday that an NHL player gets his glove stuck in a board and during Monday's game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Florida Panthers, Erik Gudbranson achieved that feat.
Gudbranson was attempting to check Toronto's Jay McClement into the boards in the first period of play and while doing so, the board gave way and Erik's glove got caught in the open area:
Now, I can finally add to my sayings, "Stuck between a hockey glove and board".

What happened to the Florida Panthers?
Just a year ago, they were one of the better teams in the Eastern Conference. Although Florida didn’t make it far in the playoffs, they battled hard in the first round against the eventual conference-champion New Jersey Devils, so the team looked to be on the upswing. Not so fast, as this year the Panthers have the worst goal differential...
Well it is was just a matter of time. The Florida Panthers defense is porous, and the goaltending has suffered.
At the moment GM Dale Tallon is carrying three goaltenders on the team in Jose Theodore, Scott Clemmensen, and Jacob Markstrom, in an effort to get some competition going to improve the situation between the pipes. We shall see if it works.
Markstrom, 23, the Gavle, Sweden, n...

Evgeni Malkin got thrown into the boards by Florida’s Erik Gudbranson with 15 minutes left in the third Period and didn’t return. It looked like he may have gotten whiplash. He also looked a little woozy as he headed to the locker room. The Pens went on to score two goals after he left and won the game 3-1.

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin was driving wide in the third period to try and get a shot. As...
