BOSTON–After one of the more tumultuous weeks in team history the Florida Panthers hope four games this week will yield better results than last week’s quartet of games that saw the Panthers finish 1-2-1.
The most recent setback was Saturday’s 2-0 loss at Ottawa, currently sitting second in the Atlantic Division. The Senators lanced Florida for two first period goals then played solid enough defense in front of journeyman goalie Mike Cnndon to collect a shutout.

The week ahead for the Panthers and Jaromir Jagr
For Jaromir Jagr it’s three games against former teams starting with tonight’s game against Boston. Tuesday night’s game will be down I-95 and is the last game of the Panthers’s six game road trip, their longest stretch away from BB&T Center. The exciting Stanley Cup Pittsburgh Penguins visit BB&T Thursday while the struggling Vancouver Canucks come to South Florida Saturday night before the Panthers hit the road again.
Jagr starts the week with 1880 points and needs seven to match Mark Messier’s 1887 as the NHL’s second all-time leading scorer. Jagr had three of the Panthers 24shots and was noticeable in Saturday’s loss, but like his teammates could not find the scoresheeet.
