Five of the Panthers next seven games will be played against division leaders, with contests against the Northeast Division leaders the Boston Bruins twice (Feb. 21 & Feb. 24), the Atlantic Division leaders the New Jersey Devils twice (Feb. 17 & Feb. 28) and the Southeast division leaders the Washingon Capitals (Mar. 1).

4. D Jay Bouwmeester ranks first in the NHL averaging 27:20 of ice time per game and has recorded nine points (6-3-9) in his last 16 games played. With his 50th goal of his NHL career on Thursday, Feb. 5, Bouwmeester became just the second Panthers defenseman to record 50 tallies while playing for the Cats, joining Robert Svehla (61).

3. The Panthers goaltending tandem of Tomas Vokoun and Craig Anderson ranks sixth in the NHL with 2.61 GAA and places third with a .922 save percentage.
