Playing with a sense of urgency usually attached to a playoff game, the Washington Capitals needed only 13 seconds to take the lead in their first-place showdown with the Florida Panthers.
The Florida Panthers will have one member of the team on the NHL’s All-Star team this year. Thursday, the NHL revealed that Panthers defenseman Brian Campbell made the 2012 All-Star squad.
The Florida Panthers earned a rare home win to add to the Pittsburgh Penguins’ road woes. Stephen Weiss scored with 3:30 left in the third period and the Panthers beat Pittsburgh 3-2 on Saturday night, capturing their first win against the Penguins in their last six games.
Kris Versteeg barely remembered the last time he had a hat trick.
The Florida Panthers were wheeling and dealing over the weekend before and after Friday’s NHL Draft. The Panthers need an influx of talent and managed to get plenty to fill both needs.
