The third episode of the Panthers Pressbox Podcast is up and the conversation is heavy around the Florida Panthers’ 5-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday.
Was the disappointing exhibition performance a harbinger of things to come when the Panthers have to play for reals come Saturday against the New York Islanders?
Or, was this exactly the early kick-in-the-pants moment Joel Quenneville needed? After all, Wednesday does not count — win or lose.
In this episode, I talk to special guest Steve Goldstein from Fox Sports Florida who called the game alongside Randy Moller not from Toronto but their studios in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
Jameson Olive, the team beat writer for floridapanthers.com and host of their Territory Talk pod, also joins in to talk about the Cats.
Brian Boyle, Erik Haula and Quenneville also give their postgame thoughts on what, exactly, happened against the Lightning.
Have a listen.
Episode 4 will advance the Islanders series which opens Saturday at 4 p.m.
