A West Coast Sweep Puts The Florida Panthers In A Playoff Position

from George Richards of the Miami Herald,

Roberto Luongo has been through this before.

So, too, have his teammates.

Yeah, the Florida Panthers are back in the thick of a playoff race.

By virtue of beating the host Los Angeles Kings 3-2 early Sunday morning at Staples Center, the Panthers took over third place in the Atlantic Division and the playoff spot that comes with it.

The win over the Kings — Florida's first in L.A. since 2002 — marked the Panthers fourth consecutive victory and seventh in their past eight games.

The Panthers left California with a three-game sweep of the Sharks, Ducks and Kings for the first time in franchise history with the five-game road trip ending Monday in St. Louis.

Roberto Luongo Now 5th All-Time In Career Wins

from George Richards of the Miami Herald,

Roberto Luongo had been tied with Hall of Famer Terry Sawchuk on the NHL’s all-time win list for almost three weeks.

Monday night, Luongo finally got sole possession of fifth.

Luongo looked terrific as he backstopped the Florida Panthers to a 3-0 win over the host New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center.

“I wasn’t too worried about it, I just wanted to get some wins,” Luongo said. “Obviously our goal is to make the playoffs and that’s where my focus is — 100 percent. The rest will take care of itself.”

The victory was No. 448 for Luongo — who had not been in the personal win column since Dec. 20 against the visiting Sabres.

Afternoon Line- Gerard Gallant

"I wasn't fired because of analytics. I loved coaching the Florida Panthers and I'm a stubborn guy at times; maybe I said a little too much, maybe I gave my opinion a little bit too much. Maybe when they asked for my opinion, I have an honest opinion and sometimes it doesn't help you. Maybe it wasn't always what they wanted to hear. I don't know where it went from there ..."

-Gerard Gallant to Piere LeBrun of ESPN.  More on and from Gallant.

Video- Seth Griffith Out With A Conussion After Hit By Nikolaj Ehlers

from George Richards of the Miami Herald,

Griffith, playing on Florida’s top line alongside Jagr and Vincent Trocheck, left Wednesday’s game in the first period with a concussion after a hit from Ehlers.

Rowe made no bones about the hit.

“It was a dirty hit, but Ehlers, he deliberately did it,” Rowe said of the blindside hit.

“I don’t care what anyone says. I saw it on video; it’s a dirty hit.”

Here Are The Florida Panthers

from Rosie DiManno of the Toronto Star,

Analyze this.

How does a team that racked up a best-ever 103-point season and the Atlantic Division title a year ago turn itself into a hot mess of a franchise verging on the bizarre and the bozo?

Eyes right: To owner Vincent Viola, the West Point graduate and 101st Airborne vet who shook the bejeezus out of the Panthers’ front office over the summer in what most observers view as a fatal enthrallment with advanced analytics, embraced by an upper management cadre of aye-aye-sir army-exes in possession of scant hockey smarts.

Viola, by the way, was recently selected by U.S. president-elect Donald Trump to serve as his Secretary of the Army. Which is either a mark of distinction or a further imputation.

In essence, these Panthers are the antithesis, the reverse-double-with-a-twist opposite of the Maple Leafs — no plan, no ballast, no clue, with a couple of glitterati players whose stars must surely start to dim soon, no disrespect intended to Jaromir Jagr and Roberto Luongo.

Just the sort of sad-sack opponent to widen Leaf eyes in anticipation of filling their bellies, first game after Xmas, caring nothing for the turmoil which has beset Florida.

Ha. Ha. Ha. Post ho-ho-ho.
