Game three of the west coast trip culminates tonight as the Florida Panthers try to break their losing streak against the Phoenix Coyotes. The first two games have been disasters of different sorts. The Anaheim game which Florida lost 5-3 found the kitties playing like kitties. Tossed around, beaten to the pucks and beated twice by tough guy George Parros. But the power play did score twice, as Steve Bernier had the two goals.
In Los Angeles the Panthers let a 2-1 lead slip away in the third (seen that before), and ended up losing 3-2 when Anze Kopitar got the winner with just under three minutes to go. Now some are saying that they Panthers have played well, but don’t have anything to show for it. Not sure what games those folks are watching, but I’m seeing a timid and fragile group out there with no confidence. Some are calling this game a must win. Others think the change in altitude will change the attitude.
