Panthers Look to Extend Home Winning Ways

Cats to Face Philadelphia Flyers on Friday Night; Fans are Encouraged to Arrive Early for Pregame Festivities

SUNRISE, Fla. - The Florida Panthers look to push their home record to 4-0 this week when they face-off against Eastern Conference rivals the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday at 7:30 p.m at the BankAtlantic Center. With three home wins, the Cats are off to their best home start since the 1995-96 campaign, when the club posted four consecutive home victories, and earned a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals.

Dating back to last season, the Panthers have posted one of the best home marks in the National Hockey League going 24-6-4 since Nov. 25, 2005. The Panthers currently sit in second place in the Southeast Division with a 3-2-1 mark, two points behind the division leaders the Atlanta Thrashers. Great tickets for Friday night's game are still available by calling (954) 835-PUCK.

All fans are encouraged to arrive to the game early in order to take part in the numerous pre-game activities that are offered at the BankAtlantic Center. The Spirit Airlines Funway is once again the place to be for pre-game entertainment, that includes local bands, interactive games and performances by Stanley's incredible FRIENDS. The first 10,000 fans attending the game will receive a free magnetic Panthers schedule courtesy of Papa John's.

Once doors open (6:30 pm for a 7:30 pm face-off) some lucky fans may also have the opportunity to eat dinner with the mascots in the Chairman's Club, while all fans can meet and greet the characters in the BankAtlantic Center food courts during intermission.

All fans are also asked to be in their seats by 7:20 p.m., so that they do not miss out on the enhanced game presentation. The Panthers are only one of a few NHL teams that feature different game presentations for weekend and weekday games. The popular Panthers Ice Dancers by Sziro Jewelry will also perform again on Friday night during the intermissions. The Ice Dancers will also help distribute give-a-ways, assist with intermission activities and be on hand at player autograph sessions.

Fans will also find new menu items featured throughout the BankAtlantic Center. The WCI Communities Private Club now will have rotating menu items and a self-serve popcorn machine. Concession stands will now include kids meals that include corn dogs, as well as kosher items for all to enjoy. New souvenir beverage cups with Panthers player's images on them will also be available at select concession stands. Also new to the BankAtlantic Center this season is a series of Heart Rock Sushi Bars, and increased points of sale to provide better and more convenient service for some of the more popular food and drink items.
