SUNRISE, Fla. – Sunrise Sports & Entertainment and FOX Sports Florida jointly announced today the Florida Panthers’ 2013-2014 NHL regular season broadcast schedule featuring 78 games broadcast in HD on the network – the most since 1999.  

To kick off their 20th Anniversary season in the National Hockey League, the Panthers travel to Dallas to take on the Stars on Thursday, Oct. 3. Coverage starts at 8:30 p.m. with PANTHERS LIVE and the FOX Sports Florida pregame show. 

The Panthers will open their home schedule with a special “throwback” BB&T Center opener on Friday, Oct 11 at 7:30 p.m. against the first regular season home opponent in franchise history – the Pittsburgh Penguins. 

Play-by-play announcer Steve “Goldie” Goldstein returns, alongside 14-year NHL veteran Bill Lindsay as color analyst, to provide viewers with expert commentary throughout the season. 

“We are thrilled to jointly announce with our wonderful partners at FOX Sports Florida one of the best television schedules in franchise history,” said Panthers Vice President of Broadcasting Randy Moller. “With 78 games broadcast live in HD, the return of popular tandem Steve ‘Goldie’ Goldstein and former Cat Billy Lindsay, as well as exciting should programming such as ‘INSIDE THE PANTHERS’, it’s going to be a great season for Cats hockey on FOX Sports Florida.”  

The popular INSIDE THE PANTHERS series returns and will feature player profiles and episodes offering behind-the-scenes access to other aspects of the team and its operations -- all designed to bring the fans closer to their favorite team.
