The Panthers celebrated the career (to date) of former Columbus goalie Sergei Bobrovsky before Saturday’s game.

While Bobrovsky made 43 saves against his former team, it was ex-Jacket Alex Wennberg who did the big damage.

Wennberg, bought out by Columbus in October and snapped up by Florida the next day, scored his first NHL hat trick as the Panthers beat the Jackets 5-2  at BB&T Center.

“He had a heck of a game,” Joel Quenneville said of Wennberg. “He did a lot of things other than scoring three. We’re happy with his game, he is adding some speed as well. The puck was falling him around a little bit.”
