Panthers look to continue road success at Flames

CALGARY, Alberta -- The Florida Panthers haven't lost a road game in more than a month.

Struggling Panthers go up against Blue Jackets

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Fans at the BB&T Center are getting restless. In the final seconds of Friday night's 5-2 loss to the New York Islanders, Florida Panthers fans were screaming "Fire Rowe" -- a chant that grew louder just before the final horn sounded.

Panthers hope road success leads to win vs. Isles at home

SUNRISE, Fla. -- The Florida Panthers have won four straight road games, but there's just one problem -- the NHL is forcing them to come home. That's right, the Panthers, who surprisingly won the 2016 Atlantic Division only to suffer through a brutal first half of this season complete with a fired coach, significant injuries and dwindling crowds, will be home on Friday to face...

Canucks reportedly won’t use draft picks for playoff push

The Vancouver Canucks are basically the kings of dealing assets for vets who are supposed to help a playoff push, when in reality, the team is far from being competitive. We saw this flawed team-building strategy when GM Jim Benning dealt former first-round pick Jared McCann and multiple draft picks for the steady but unspectacular Erik Gudbranson. The Canucks failed to realize...

Q & A with Panthers’ Mike Matheson

Florida Panthers: How has firing coach Gerard Gallant affected the team?

After only 22 games this season the Florida Panthers decided to fire their head coach Gerard Gallant. Replacing him was the Panthers’ own General Manager Tom Rowe. Rowe has since coached the team through 20 games. But has this switch brought any improvements to the team? Many criticized the team’s management for their decision to fire Gallant and the team’s results have not...

Panthers a Good Home for Reimer

Given what James Reimer has gone through in his National Hockey League career, the infamous saying ‘Nice guys finish last’ would have to be considered verified truth, at least up until now. The affable Florida Panthers goaltender, coming into this season newly inked to a five-year, $17 million dollar contract, truly went through the wringer in Toronto before being shipped to...

The unbreakable Jaromir Jagr now wants to play until he’s 55

Jaromir Jagr is just like the Energizer Bunny, his career keeps going and going and going. The 44-year-old doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon, as Jagr admitted he wants to play until he’s 55. Back in December, Jagr said he would work everyday to play until he’s 50. Now he has raised the bar. “I go to 55,” Jagr told NorthJersey.com Monday as the Panthers beat the...

Trocheck is an All-Star!

The hard-working center is vindicated with a trip to La La Land for the NHL’s showcase. Vincent Trocheck, the Florida Panthers centerman, has been selected to represent the Atlantic division in the National Hockey League’s All-Star tournament in Los Angeles this season. Trocheck, 23, is making the trip to the league’s mid-winter classic for the first time in his career. Vinny...

WATCH: Jagr passes Messier on assists list

It didn’t take long for Jaromir Jagr to pass Mark Messier for second all time in points in the NHL, as his third period assist against the Bruins gave him 1,888 career points. But let’s just say it wasn’t the prettiest pass in the world. If Jagr keeps getting assists like that, it’s going to be very tough for him to play until he’s 50. But I still hope he tries. From...

Amid rough December, Florida Panthers co-owner picked for Donald Trump’s cabinet

For outsiders looking at the Florida Panthers organization, 2016 continues to be a very strange year to understand. To recap: The Panthers organization have had a bizarre December. Panthers ownership fired head coach Gerard Gallant, despite relative success. The move was a clear signal towards further embracing analytics with a collaborative management group. But, only days later...

Blackhawks fans engage in makeout session behind Joel Quenneville (vid)

A couple of Chicago Blackhawks fans seated behind their favorite NHL team’s bench couldn’t keep their eyes focused on the on-ice action and instead engaged in a pretty hot-and-heavy makeout session. And Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville, separated by a mere foot or two along with some plexiglass, was none the wiser. The very-public-display-of-very-intense-affection occurred...

Making sense of Florida Panthers firing Gerard Gallant, which NHL coach could be next

The Florida Panthers stunned the hockey world on Sunday amid reports of head coach Gerard Gallant being fired. Coming off a surprise 47-win, 103-point season and a Jack Adams nomination in 2015-16, Gallant’s job appeared safe. But despite the relative absurdity of firing a coach coming off a great season (and currently one game over .500 this season), there is a method behind...
