Post-Game Notes: Panthers 4, Senators 2
The Panthers came back from a two-goal deficit to win for the third time in their last six games.

In the final meeting between the teams this season, Florida ended a nine-game winless streak against Ottawa (0-8-1). It was the Panthers first win against the Sens since a 3-0 shutout in Ottawa Jan. 9, 2010.

At 31-22-12, Florida has already topped its win and point total (74) for all of last season (30-40-12). It's the Panthers' best record through 65 games since going 33-24-8 in 2008-09 and just one point shy of being their best record since 1999-2000 (35-21-4-5).

With 74 points, Florida opened up a four-point lead on its opponents for first place in the division. The Panthers have now been in first place for 94 days on the season.

The Cats moved to 22-2-7 when scoring with the man advantage this season, including a 14-0-1 mark when scoring a PPG and not allowing an opponent PPG.

Marcel Goc got the Panthers on the board just 33 seconds into the second period, his third point (2-1-3) in his last four games. He has seven points (2-5-7) in his last 10 games and nine points (2-7-9) in his last 12 games, totaling 18 points (7-11-18) in 40 games this season.

Krys Barch notched his second goal and fourth point of the season. It was No. 21’s first goal in 21 games since scoring Jan. 6 at New Jersey. He has four points (2-2-4) in 34 games with Florida after playing 10 games with Dallas to start the season.

Mikael Samuelsson gave the Panthers the lead with his first goal in six games and first point in four, adding a season-high four hits. He has 18 points (8-10-18) in 32 games with Florida after totaling three points (1-2-3) in six games with Vancouver to start the year.

Mike Weaver has matched his career high with two assists on the night. He continues to extend his career-high season with 16 points (0-16-16) in 65 games.

With a helper on Samuelsson’s goal, Brian Campbell reached the 40-assist mark for the fourth season in his career, the first since totaling 52 points (7-45-52) in 82 games with the Blackhawks in 2008-09. He has 44 points (4-40-44) in 65 games this season, second only to Ottawa’s Erik Karlsson for most points among all NHL defensemen.

Jack Skille matched his career high with two points (1-1-2). It was his first goal in 10 games, as he now has 10 points (4-6-10) in 44 games this season.

With an assist, Stephen Weiss has posted five points (3-2-5) in his last five games. He has nine points (3-6-9) in his last 12 games and is T-2nd on the Panthers with 47 points (16-31-47) in 63 games this year.

The Panthers moved to 12-3-2 against Canadian opponents this season, including a 7-1-1 record on home ice, with the lone regulation loss in Sunrise coming in the 6-2 loss to Ottawa on Feb. 15.

The Panthers matched their season high with three goals in the second period, the seventh time this season they have totaled three markers in a frame, most recently in the second period on Long Island Feb. 12.

Florida moved to 25-3-4 when tallying at least three goals this season (including shootouts).

Florida has now allowed the game’s first two goals in five of its last six contests (3-2-1) and six of its last eight (4-3-1). Florida has allowed the game's first goal in 11 of its last 15 games and 37 times this season. The Panthers are 12-20-5 when allowing the game’s first goal.

The Panthers moved to 19-1-4 when leading after two periods and 7-14-6 when trailing after one period.

The Panthers have outshot their opponent in seven of their last eight games, totaling a 274-214 advantage in that span (4-3-1).

Florida finished its 11th of 14 sets of back-to-back games this season, having posted a 5-5-1 record on the second night of consecutive games, including three straight wins.

Tonight's BankAtlantic Center attendance: 15,811

Four Panthers missed the game with injury, as Florida has now lost 291 man games to injury this season.
