Two days after an embarrassing 7-0 loss at Winnipeg, Florida (30-22-12) suffered a 3-1 home defeat to Nashville on Saturday. Recently-acquired Wojtek Wolski provided the team's only offense while Scott Clemmensen made 20 saves. Despite outshooting the Predators 40-23, the Panthers failed to increase their two-point Southeast Division lead over the second-place Jets.
