With sincere apologies to the Fox network’s 9-1-1 franchise, the Florida Panthers have found a lot to like about a new line consisting of newcomer Sam Bennett, Jonathan Huberdeau and Anthony Duclair.

Florida’s version of 9-1-1 has only had three episodes, but the reviews have been pretty good.

We’re not expecting coach Joel Quenneville to cancel Sunrise 9-1-1 any time soon. 

They may go on hiatus, however.

With Mason Marchment expected to miss Thursday’s game against the visiting Carolina Hurricanes, it is possible Huberdeau (or Frank Vatrano) moves up to the top line for the time being.

But, once Carter Verhaeghe returns and goes back to his spot with Sasha Barkov and Nikita Gusev, Huberdeau will almost certainly be reunited with Bennett and Duclair.

UPDATE: Patric Hornqvist will join Barkov and Gusev tonight against Carolina. 

“I wasn’t touching that line,” Joel Quenneville said Thursday morning. 

The trio — Bennett (No. 9), Huberdeau (11) and Duclair (91) — have shown terrific chemistry and have generated chance after chance since their season premier Saturday night in Tampa.

“All three guys are really making it happen,’’ Quenneville said. “It’s been fun to watch.”
