Found November 11, 2013 on NHL Injury News:
It was thought that the Florida Panthers were not playing Scott Gomez because of his poor play as of late. But as it turns out he has missed the last three games due to a groin injury and is considered to be day to day. All this according to the Miami Heralds George Richards. The 33 year old Gomez, in 15 games thus far has just four points. Most came early on in the season, as his goal and three assists came in the first eight games. Since his last assist on Oct. 15th, he had gone on an eight game pointless streak. Gomez has a bloated contract and his play of late has gotten him mocked due to his inflated contract. The Montreal Canadiens made him one of the leagues first compliance buyouts following the closure of the last lockout. The team had hoped to get back on track against the New York Rangers yesterday, but lost 4-3 at the Garden.    

Panthers Goaltending Saga Continues—Markstrom sent down

This past Summer, I kept looking at the Panthers lineup and wondered what they were going to do with their goaltending. After they let Jose Theodore go, I expected something to happen, whether it was trading for a goaltender, or finding another goalie in Europe to add to the mix. Even after Dale Tallon signed Tim Thomas, it still felt like the Panthers were looking for a more permanent...

Florida Panthers captain Ed Jovanovski’s status still up in the air

Defenceman Ed Jovanovski knew he needed hip surgery when “my kids had to help me put on my socks because I couldn’t bend over.” The wear and tear on his hip had severely reduced the Florida Panthers rearguard’s mobility. “I couldn’t tie my skates unless I reached out. I couldn’t bend.” He will be on Panthers trip to Edmonton later this month. When he plays is anyone’s...

The weekly NHL Index: 11-11-13

Biggest Story of the week Kevin Dineen led the Florida Panthers to the playoffs two seasons ago.  This week he was fired along with his assistant coaches Craig Ramsay and Gord Murphy.  Replacing Dineen is Peter Horachek, who coached the Panthers’ AHL affiliate.  John  Madden and Brian Skrudland will be the new assistants.  This wasn’t a shocking change by any means. ...

Panthers snap skid and surprise Ducks, 3-2

SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) -- Brad Boyes scored the tiebreaking goal early in the third period, Tim Thomas stopped 32 shots and the Florida Panthers snapped a nine-game losing streak Tuesday night with a 3-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks. Scottie Upshall and Shawn Matthias also scored for the Panthers, who earned their first win under new coach Peter Horachek and ended Anaheim's...

Panthers send goalie Markstrom to AHL

Tim Thomas‘ return to the Florida Panthers net meant either Scott Clemmensen or Jacob Markstrom was going to be headed to the minor leagues. This time around, youth doesn’t prevail. The Panthers sent Markstrom back to AHL San Antonio and for the 23-year-old Swede it may be a blessing in disguise.

NHL losers ponder trades, firings

Losing has consequences. As the losses piled on the NHL also-rans, change became inevitable.Florida Panthers general manager Dale Tallon fired his coaching staff, despite his earlier votes of confidence for head coach Kevin Dineen. It seems the franchise’s new owners didn’t enjoy watching that team lose game after game after game in soul-crushing fashion.The staggering Edmonton...

Rangers finally jump over .500 mark with 4-3 win over Panthers

Let’s stipulate Sunday’s 4-3 victory over the Panthers at the Garden will never see the light of day in a Rangers Classic Marathon on MSG Network, but at the same time, let’s recognize there is no such thing as a bad two points in the NHL. “We’ll take every win we can get,” Dan Girardi said after the Blueshirts bounded over .500 at 9-8 with their sixth victory in their...

Rolling Rangers Take Out Panthers 4-3

The Panthers fought hard throughout this game but they couldn’t distinguish the flame under the surging Rangers. The Blueshirts defeat the Florida Panthers and hand them their 9th straight game. First period, both teams played an evenly fast paced game. The Blueshirts scored first when JT Miller netted a beauty of a goal, assisted by […]

Senators outlast Panthers 3-2 for third straight win

Tim Thomas arrived in Ottawa as an almost mythical figure – The Goalie the Senators Couldn’t Solve. By the end of his team’s 3-2 loss at the Canadian Tire Centre, he probably wished he’d spent the afternoon at the hotel watching Duck Dynasty. Thomas probably played well enough to win, but Florida’s punchless power play (0-for-5) and haphazard defensive play was too much...
