When the Florida Panthers last skated on postseason ice, they were swept away by Martin Brodeur.
A dozen years, eight coaches and a couple hundred players later, the Panthers are finally back in the Stanley Cup playoffs. And even though the Florida franchise fortunes seem to finally be changing, maybe it's fitting that Brodeur - the NHL's winningest active playoff goalie...
Last night the New Jersey Devils went into Florida to take on the Panthers and won Game One 3-2. Though the Devils didn't play great, besides the first period, a win is a win come playoff time. Here are some notes on the game.
- I'm not sure if Anton Volchenkov was banged up or if Pete DeBoer didn't like the way he was playing, but he certainly didn't play very...
Florida Panthers right winger Scottie Upshall missed on a check attempt and went head over heels into the Panthers bench during Friday night's NHL playoff game against the New Jersey Devils.
It happened in the third period when Upshall made a leaping attempt to check Devils right winger Stephen Gionta in front of the Panthers bench. Gionta was able to dodge out of the...
It’s finally Friday and the Devils and Panthers will finally get their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal s matchup underway tonight. This is it!! This is what we’ve been waiting an entire year for. The Devils enter tonight’s game as the hottest team to close out the regular season having won their final 6 games but that was last week. THIS is a whole different ballgame. Four...
The first Florida Panthers' playoff game in 12 years was one that NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman wouldn't miss.
Bettman was in the crowd Friday night for Game 1 of Florida's Eastern Conference first-round series against New Jersey, a matchup that officially marked the end of what was the NHL's longest active playoff drought. The Panthers' most recent playoff game...

From the start the Florida Panthers looked like they wanted to dictate play, and physical play at that. The intensity was up and the crowd was rocking...until the Devils skill kicked in. It didn't take long.
At 6:31 of the first, Patrick Elias outwaited a sprawling Theodore to make it 1-0, and the onslaught continued totaling 26 shots to the Panthers 9 at the end of the...
By Bill WhiteheadSUNRISE, Fla. -- No disrespect intended by any means, but the Florida Panthers aren't really looking for anyone's respect or approval at this point in the season.Or to be more clear, this point in the postseason.Few in the media believed in Florida, who clinched its first divisional title by winning the Southeast in a 4-1 victory over Carolina last Saturday...
So Brendan Shanahan the Vice President of the Department of Player Safety was busy the day after the first night of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
First Shanahan fined Nashville Predators defenseman Shew Weber the NHL maximum of $2,500.00 and then suspended Canucks forward Bryon Bitz for two games for boarding Kyle Clifford, Bitz was assessed a major penalty and given game...
SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) -- Going down 3-0 in a playoff game against Martin Brodeur is not a great idea.
Going down 2-0 in a playoff series against Brodeur is even worse.
Over Brodeur's storied time in the New Jersey nets, the Devils are a perfect 10-for-10 when winning the first two games of a postseason series. New Jersey could get there again Sunday night, when the Devils visit...
A lot of talk around the Panthers this last week is if there is a goalie controversy. Jose Theodore, who was stellar for most of the season, looked mediocre for multiple starts down the stretch, making the clinching of a division title all that more excruciating.
Scott Clemmensen outplayed him by far, but only has one playoff start in his career. Coach Kevin Dineen had the familiar...
Martin Brodeur stopped 24 shots for his 100th postseason win,
and a three-goal first period was enough to help the New Jersey
Devils spoil the Florida Panthers' long-awaited return to the
Stanley Cup playoffs in a 3-2 victory Friday night.
The New Jersey Devils will start their first round playoff matchup with the Florida Panthers tonight in South Beach.
Last season. The Devils weren't able to make the playoffs and it was an off year for them, but here they once again.
First year head coach Peter DeBoer has a fantastic job of getting this team back on track and a chance to get back to Lord Stanley.
