- Last night, Florida lost their first game after firing the entire coaching staff on Friday. Peter Horachek was promoted from Florida's American Hockey League affiliate in San Antonio as head coach.
- Florida has lost eight straight games.
- Tomas Fleischmann is pointless and a -5 in the last two games.
- Brian Campbell has yet to score this season.
- Jonathan Huberdeau hasn't scored in 10 games.
- Brad Boyes has one goal in the last 11 games.
- Former Ranger Scott Gomez hasn't scored since opening night on October 3rd.
- Kris Versteeg is pointless in the last six games.
- The Panthers own the worst power play in the NHL at an 8.5-percent success rate. They've gone 1 for 25 with the advantage during the losing streak, scoring only 14 goals.
- Whenever the Panthers visit MSG, I can't help but think of the "Great One" (6:24 mark)...

I wouldnt care if it hurt the team. I wouldnt care if we lost because of kreider. we need to set the stage early this season and demonstrate that we will come after you if you go after our guys. The league doesnt protect star players. Even the player association doesnt. Bottom line is towards the end of the year when it counts, players will think twice before running our guys. It might be a half-second thought but that may be all we need to make a play.kudos to kreider!!!
I watched this game with my dad so I didn't get to post but this was a really fun game to watch. For the first time in a while I don't worry about this team scoring.
Replayed the Kreider hit. Damn. Imagine if Kreids came in at full stride/speed. I think Upshall would be dead.
Kreider destroyed him. If there was any question of how much Raw Power our boy Kreider has...
Also, it was a bad play to make, but we've been clamoring for our guys to stand up for each other, so there we have it!
2 points in a trap game.... I'lll take it. Solid 3rd period. Big game against the Devils Tuesday... Keep it rolling
Not sure why I keep thinking Vanbiesbrouck is in goal for FLA. I think it's that big throat protector Thomas is wearing.
Been cleaning the apartment and putting away summer clothes, but I have been watching. Overall we look pretty good tonight, then again we are playing Florida. Richards has been playing pretty well of late. Yeah he missed a few chances tonight, but he has looked pretty good.
working on a couple of photoshops in the woods. to weird?
@johnAMIRANTESrug It's weird, isn't it? I actually go in to power plays with enough of an expectation of a goal to where getting one isn't a surprise anymore. What the hell.
@shoot_the_goalie gaborik shoots goalie
@AnnoyingJoe Wow. Nicely done.
@tygalpin ithaca is great. love the finger lakes
@tygalpin NYR bailed him out. I liked that he was sticking up for Step, and certainly we always complain about the lack of that, so I'm happy it didn't hurt the team. He'll learn there is a time and place for sending a message.
But yeah, he destroyed Upshall. Kreids seems to be picking up a nasty streak, which is kinda fun to watch with his size and power.
@tygalpin Yep. I'm okay with an error like that, as long as he learns.
@shoot_the_goalie He should have just taken him into the boards and crosschecked him there.
@JustinRP37 He's had a lot of chances in this game.
@Hotfreak Thats what she said
@Hotfreak He also looks a lot like Timothy Busfield.
@Hotfreak I be he could be had for a ridiculous cap hit.
@AnnoyingJoe I approve of this
@AnnoyingJoe lol! I'm not really the guy to ask, though.
@JustinRP37 well, hope the NYR can pickup Kreids here.
