17 – It only took one period of play for the Panthers to equal the last game in shots as the Cats came out flying with 17 shots in the opening period against Washington. They only had 17 the entire game against New Jersey. Florida put 9 shots on Theodore at even strength and 8 with the man advantage. Bryan McCabe and Stephen Weiss each had three shots a piece.

3

The last time the Panthers have scored three power play goals in a game came on March 8, 2008 against Atlanta.

4 – The Panthers skaters came out gunning and along with their season high three power play goals in the first, the Panthers also set a new high for most goals in a period, as Richard Zednik’s 13th of the season gave Florida four first period goals. The Panthers had three, eight separate occasions this season.

11 – The Panthers leading scorer this season and on pace to crush his previous high of 48 points, Weiss recorded his 11th multi-point game of the season, his second 3-point game (59 games). Weiss scored the first goal of the game for the Panthers and then assisted on Bouwmeester’s goal and on Jassen Cullimore’s second period goal, giving Florida a 5-1 advantage.

5 – Acquired in the off-season, McCabe was looked upon to add punch to the Panthers from the backend. He has done that this season collecting 12 goals and 19 assists in 53 games. Sunday, he tied a career high with four points (goal, 3 assists) in the contest. It was the fifth time he has done that, the last time being March 6, 2008 against Boston.
