That's A Win!
After falling in Game 1 at the BankAtlantic Center, the Panthers got off to a blazing start as Stephen Weiss scored a power play goal 23 seconds into Game 2 and the team never looked back in earning their first playoff victory since 1997 with a 4-2 win on Apr. 15. Rats rained down as Tomas Fleischmann iced it with an empty netter at the buzzer.
Coming Back On The Devils
Like most of the series against the Devils, Florida found themselves on the trailing end thanks to an early hole. In Game 3 at the Prudential Center, the Panthers trailed by three goals just 6:16 into the contest. A goaltending change and the power play earned them their second three-goal comeback victory over the Devils in the season. Two power play goals in the first got the game to 3-2 and then after Mike Weaver tied the game 2:18 into the second, Brian Campbell would knot the eventual game-winner on their third power play of the night 6:34 into the second.
 
A Sudden End
The Panthers' season comes to an end, with a 3-2 home playoff loss to New Jersey on April 26. The loss comes on a bitter note as trailing by two after two, they get two power play goals to force a sudden death situation. After playing through a full twenty minutes of overtime, a second one is needed and Adam Henrique ends the Cats season 3:47 into the second one.
