The Florida Panthers and Columbus Blue Jackets found themselves in a battle Tuesday night with the visitors getting a goal in the final seconds before the Panthers won it 4-3 in a shootout.
Usually, the two teams would go their separate ways once the game was done — and, since they are in different divisions, would only face each other a handful of times in a season.
In 2021, however, there were no goodbyes between the two, no ‘see ya laters.’
The Panthers stayed in Columbus following Tuesday’s rousing victory, returning to their downtown hotel before practicing at Nationwide Arena the following day.
Thursday night, the two meet again.
