Given up for dead as the All-Star Game approached, Florida has dramatically turned things around over the past six weeks, going 12-5-3 to climb back into the Eastern Conference playoff race. After a near-sellout crowd saw them beat Southeast Division co-leader and rival Atlanta on Saturday for the first time in seven tries, the Panthers find themselves just five points shy of the eighth and final postseason seed with 13 games remaining.
“I’m sure a lot of people have written us off, but in here, we’ve never thought we’re out of it,” said forward Nathan Horton. “Obviously, it took us longer than we wanted to get things going, but we feel good about things and now we’re making our push.”
