Saturday night is the most anticipated home opener for the Florida Panthers since the 2005-2006 season which was the year after the lockout. The game is almost sold out, so if you haven’t purchased your tickets yet act quickly as you won’t want to miss it. A new era is beginning here in South Florida and the Panthers finally have a legitimate chance to win the hearts of it’s fans. And gain some new one’s. New home sweaters, a new entrance to start the game, a new and highly anticipated goal song, and of course a roster of new players who’s talent combined just rings of character and hard work. It’s never been a better time to be a Florida Panther fan (since 1996). We hope to see you at the Bank Atlantic Center Saturday night. Stop by our “meet and greet” during the first and second intermissions at the Budweiser Terrace. We look forward to seeing you there!
