Monday REDlines: Recapping The Florida Panthers & NHL Weekend.


Today’s music video is a spooky one:

After 10 games the Florida Panthers are 6-4-0 and have 12 points.  Off to a fantastic start, and should they continue this pace they would ending up with 96 to 98 points, which should be good enough for their first playoff birth in 11 years.  Their bounce back victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night was a heart stopper, but an excellent way to respond to the disappointing loss in Ottawa on Thursday.  The schedule does them a small favor this week by being at home, but none of the next three games (Winnipeg, Chicago, Tampa) will be walks in the park.
