Coming off a big 3-2 comeback win over the Carolina Hurricanes, the Florida Panthers will take on the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday in Sunrise.
Ryan O’Reilly scored 3:55 into overtime, as his shot trickled through the legs of Florida goalie Jose Theodore, helping the Avalanche rally for a 4-3 win over the Panthers on Wednesday night.
Jose Theodore saw the puck at his feet and threw his arms in the air. It’s way too early to declare the Florida Panthers a playoff contender, though moments like that from their new goalie are certainly signs of hope.
The Florida Panthers started the day more than $20 million below the NHL’s salary cap floor and when the clock struck noon, Panthers general manager Dale Tallon came out swinging to try to help rebuild the moribund franchise.
