5 THINGS EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT TONIGHT'S GAME:

5. The Florida Panthers have posted an 23-13-6 mark since Jan. 1, earning points in 29 of their last 42 games. After 79 games, Florida (39-29-11) owns their best record since 1999-2000 campaign (42-26-6-5), the last time that the Panthers qualified for the post season. The Panthers begin a two-game road trip tonight in Philadelphia, followed by a contest in Atlanta on Apr. 9. Florida closes out the regular season with a home game against the Washington Capitals on Sat. Apr. 11.

4. D Jay Bouwmeester ranks second in the NHL averaging 26:58 of ice time per game and ranks 22nd among NHL league leaders with 41 points (15-26-41). He also holds the NHL’s active consecutive games played streak at 338 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. Additionally, 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. Seven of Florida’s top 11 leading point producers are 26 years-old or younger (Weiss-26 yrs old; Booth-24 yrs old; Horton-23 yrs old; Bouwmeester-25 yrs old; Frolik-20 yrs old; Campbell-25 yrs old, Ballard-26 yrs old).

2. C Michael Frolik ranks seventh among NHL rookie scoring leaders with 41 points (20-21-41). In addition, Frolik places seventh in rookie goal scoring (20) and fifth among rookie leaders in shots on goal (153). He recorded the 20th goal of his freshman season on Mar. 31 vs. Ottawa, becoming just the third Panthers rookie to score at least 20 goals joining Mark Parrish (24) and Kristian Huselius (25).

1. Florida has posted a 4-1 mark in their last five games and has pulled into an eighth-place tie with the New York Rangers. Both teams have three games remaining with Florida at Philadelphia tonight, at Atlanta on Thurs. Apr. 9th and at home against Washington on Sat. Apr. 11th. The Rangers host the Canadiens this evening and then Philadelphia on Thurs. Apr. 9th and close out their season at Philadelphia on Sun. Apr. 12th. With a Panthers win tonight and a Rangers loss, Florida would hold sole possession of the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.
