FHN Today: The Florida Panthers would like a return to Tampa

Published

Florida panthers

TAMPA — As much as one would think the Florida Panthers don’t like Tampa very much, they certainly hope tonight’s game at Amalie Arena is not their last in the city.

They would love to be coming back for a Game 6 on Friday night.

Obviously that would mean they got themselves back into the series.

No one is booking hotels or flights or any of that stuff just yet. The Panthers have a long way to go just to win a single game in this series much less make it one.

They will have to put up a better showing than they did in the third period, that’s for sure.

At least we have some other good series going on — the Rangers got back in theirs, Edmonton looked dominant.

We have controversy in the Avs-Blues series and Hollywood’s Steven Kampfer is headed north…

PANTHERLAND

The Florida Panthers are in deep — really deep this time — as they either win tonight or go home for the summer. 

It’s too early to start talking about the offseason, although if Florida loses tonight, we probably do that on Wednesday.
