from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,
Florida Panthers President and Chief Operating Officer Michael Yormark posted on Twitter today that the team will not be selling plastic rats anymore at games at BankAtlantic Center—and blamed it on Devils’ fans that attended Game 5.
“Panthers will not sell rats at Pantherland,” Yourmark tweeted. “This is a result of visiting fans throwing rats on the ice during the game.”
Some fans threw the rats, which were being sold for $5 apiece, on the ice after each goal during the Panthers’ 3-0 Game 5 win over the Devils at BankAtlantic Center. They also threw rats on the ice after Panther goals in Games 1 and 2.
