I’ll start off this special evening edition of REDlines with Coaches Corner from this past Saturday:
With their fifth win of the young season Monday night against the Montreal Canadiens and Jacques Martin, the Florida Panthers are beginning to raise eyebrows. When you combine that with the NBA lockout and the collapse of the Miami Dolphins on Sunday (I left when in was 15-0), the Florida Panthers seem to be the flavor of the month. If you don’t believe me today’s links focus on our Panthers not only locally, but across the NHL. Links after the jump
