The Florida Panthers were supposed to be in Raleigh, N.C., on Thursday morning yet due to yet another COVID postponement, were back at practice in Sunrise.
Coach Joel Quenneville has run his team through its paces for the past few weeks with only two games against the Chicago Blackhawks to break up the monotony.
Thursday, he decided to have a little fun all while his team got some work in.
After about 15 minutes into yet another practice, Quenneville gathered the team at center ice and told them the plan.
The teams were split according to jersey color and two pucks would be in play at once — a 14-on-14 scrimmage.
“Get after it!” Quenneville shouted to cheers.
And they did.
