The Panthers are currently riding a two-game winning streak (3/26 @ PHI 4-2 W, 3/28 @ DAL 6-3 W) and open a three-game homestand tonight against the Ottawa Senators.

4. D Jay Bouwmeester ranks third in the NHL averaging 26:58 of ice time per game and ranks 24th among NHL league leaders with 39 points (15-24-39). He also holds the NHL’s active consecutive games played streak at 335 games played, dating back to the 2003-04 season. Bouwmeester tied his career high with his 15th goal of the season on Mar. 28 at Dallas, which also ties the franchise mark by goals scored by a defenseman in season.
