@FlaPanthers: 17 games to claw way into playoffs

jagrbeardrangers
Jaromir Jagr has gone beard, no-beard all-season and like the fans of the Florida Panthers with their good luck charms, has struggled to find the magic he and the team enjoyed last season when he was the team’s leading scorer and the team won the Atlantic Division. With the cream of the Eastern Conference rising in Metro Division, the Panthers only options for the playoffs is to catch Boston, currrently third in the Atlantic with 76 points, or the New York Islanders, currently holding the second wild card with 75 points. Florida has 69 points.

SUNRISE–The Florida Panthers hope to have a Wild time at the expense of Minnesota when the two teams meet tonight at the BB&T Center. Recent practices have seen a shakeup of line combinations as the Cats try to pull the trigger on jump-starting their dormant offense, while not a powerhouse, an underperformed most of the season given the available talent.

Jaromir Jagr has struggled in recent weeks with more penalty minutes than points. For Jagr and other Panthers with expiring contracts, the coming weeks mean money as they are now playing for next year’s contract in Florida or elsewhere if the Panthers don’t make the playoffs.
