Why is no one talking about the Panthers?

Midway through the 2014-15 season, the conversations are all generally the same: what a surprise the Nashville Predators are, whether or not the Anaheim Ducks can turn their huge regular season success into something tangible in the playoffs and whether or not the New York Islanders are for real.

Why did Claude Giroux bite Erik Gudbranson’s jersey? (GIF)

Philadelphia Flyers center Claude Giroux bit the jersey of Florida Panthers defenseman Erik Gudbranson during a stoppage of play in Thursday night's game at the Wells Fargo Center.OK, technically that's not a penalty, but this deserves one simply because it's so weird.
