From The Florida Panthers Side

The Florida Panthers will look rebound from a tough loss and get back in the win column when they kick off a pivotal back-to-back set against the Detroit Red Wings at Little Caesars Arena on Saturday afternoon.

After stringing together consecutive wins against Buffalo and Toronto, the Panthers (13-14-6) stumbled in their rematch with the Maple Leafs on Thursday night, losing 6-1 while allowing a season-high three power play goals. Overall, Florida now sits at 6-9-2 on the road this season.

"We talked about some of those mistakes, but it's a positive day," Panthers coach Bob Boughner said after Friday's practice in Detroit. We've got a big game tomorrow against a team we're trying to chase. It's a four-point game.

"We just want to make sure we come out and we play well. If you have some success here, that's three out of your last going into Chicago with a chance to go four out of five. I think we'd take that rolling into Christmas break."

Puck drops just after 2:00pm ET.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
