Some harsh words from Pete the Bore after the Florida Panthers defence played like boys against the men of the Anaheim Ducks.  Here’s what Pete had to say:

“We were very soft in our end of the ice playing without the puck,’’ said Panthers coach Pete DeBoer.. Their guys were playing men with boys. We didn’t have a response physically.

And then there was this:

“That’s a team that makes you pay for mistakes if you’re going to make soft plays with the puck or turn pucks over. We found that out the hard way tonight.’’

Finally some tough love from the frustrated coach as the Panthers began their three game western road trip on the short end of the stick losing to Anaheim 5-3.  I missed the entire first period, and some of the second.  But thanks to things like Twitter and sports updates that are sent to my phone, I was current on what was happening.  When I learned that George Parros had put the Ducks ahead 3-0 I felt as though the airwaves were tricking me.   Then four seconds after the ensuing face-off after his second goal, George and Darcy Hordichuk dropped the gloves and I figured the updates were accurate.  I don’t now about you, but any time a tough guy like Parros scores two goals in a game, and then caps it off with a fight, there’s not much anyone can do. Even though the fight could barely be called that, as the players fell to the ice within seconds, Parros ended the night an assist short of the Gordie Howe Hat Trick.

Here’s the TSN boxscore.
