CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. Practice. The Florida Panthers are happy to be talking about practice.
On the tail end of a stretch which has the Panthers playing five games in eight days, Florida finally had the opportunity to hit the reset button amid a three-game slide.
The Panthers met Friday for a video review and team meeting, then spent their on-ice session working on the basics. Getting the puck in deep. Battling along the boards. Shooting to score. Producing secondary chances in front of the net.
"We didn't go out there long, but everything we did had a purpose today," Florida coach Kevin Dineen said. "There's areas we have to address every day. The good thing is the players are very aware. They're on board and they want to stop the flow of blood here."
Friday marked the first practice for Florida since Jan. 20, a day prior to the team's Canadian road trip. Dineen rested his players on Wednesday after the team arrived back in Florida at 4 a.m.

The 21-year-old center has yet to play in an NHL regular season game.
