Gerard Gallant believes his team played "a good game" in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Penguins.
The Penguins scored the winner in the extra frame after Jussi Jokinen went to the box for hooking. "We played pretty well, were in command, but they’re a good team and found the goals,’’ said coach Gerard Gallant. "I thought we played a good game, and they found a way to come back and get two big points against us. It was disappointing. We played a good enough game to win. It happens." Feb 7 - 11:49 AM

Florida's power play has gone 0-for-18 in the last seven games.

The Panthers haven't scored on the man advantage since Jan. 2. "We need to compete harder, put pucks at the net," coach Gerard Gallant said. "We had some great looks, changed things up in the third. When it's not going good, it gives the other team momentum."

For the first time in professional sports history, two teams with the same nickname have recorded 11-game win streaks.

The NFL's Carolina Panthers and the NHL's Florida Panthers have turned the trick this season. That's pretty cool in our books. Moral of the story, it's a good year to be any kind of Panthers' fan.

Attendance at Panther games has noticeably increased of late.

Florida is riding an eight-game winning streak and are in top spot in the Atlantic Division, and the local fans seem to have noticed. "We’re a long way from that, but it’s a lot of fun," coach Gerard Gallant said of potential playoff success. "The crowds are into the game, the team is playing very well. ... It’s awesome, couldn’t go any better for us right now."

The Florida Panthers have also extended coach Gerard Gallant through the 2019 season.

Gallant has led the Panthers to a 59-41-19 record since taking the helm, including this season's 21-12-4 mark that has them a point behind Montreal for first in the Atlantic. Things are finally starting to turn sunny in south Florida.

The Florida Panthers have inked general manager Dale Tallon to a multi-year extension.

The Panthers didn't disclose the details of the extension, but based on a previous report from the Miami Herald, it's probably a three-year deal. Tallon took over the Panthers in 2010 and while the team hasn't accomplished a ton since then, they seem to have finally turned a corner this season with a division-leading 21-12-4 record. Tom Rowe has also moved from the head coach of the AHL Portland Pirates to an associate general manager.

According to a source within the organization, GM Dale Tallon and the Panthers have agreed in principal to a three-year contract extension.

Tallon was in the final year of his contract, so Panthers management is trying to lock him up. Tallon has revamped the entire Panthers roster and his changes have paid dividends.

The surging Florida Panthers have won 13 of the last 16 games and seven in a row going into the New Year.

The club has taken over the top spot in the Atlantic Division thanks to their vastly improve play. "We were 3-6-3 and it was looking bad, we were headed on a tough road trip." coach Gerard Gallant said. "But the guys battled. But they believe in themselves, know they are a good team. If we battle and play the right way, we can beat anyone on any given night."

With a win against Columbus on Sunday, the Florida Panthers would extend its winning streak to six games, which is a feat they haven't accomplished since 2008.

The fact that the franchise hasn't enjoyed a winning streak of six or more games since 2008 is a little sad, but it's hardly surprising given the record of Florida. This is a franchise that has only made the playoffs four times in its 21-season existence (22 if you count the still in progress 2015-16 campaign) and has only made the postseason once since 2001. That being said, with a 19-12-4 record exiting the Christmas break, the Panthers are very much in the running to make the postseason this season.

Four Panther prospects will particiapte in this prestigious tournament. Forwards Lawson Crouse will play for Canada, Juho Lammikko for Finland, Denis Malgin for Switzerland and goaltender Samual Montembeault will represent Canada. This looks good on Cats' GM Dale Tallon.

Gerard Gallant had an interesting way of describing Saturday's game between the Bruins and Panthers.

"It was pretty flat game, a defensive-minded game," Panthers coach Gerard Gallant said. "There wasn't a lot of scoring chances for either team. They got the first goal and it held up for quite awhile. Every game is different in this league; another low-scoring game [while in ] Washington we had a lot of jump and lots of room on the ice. Today there was no room on the ice for either team." The Panthers lost the game by a score of 3-1.

Florida's power play has been excellent at home, but it has struggled on the road.

The Panthers lead the league with 14 goals (on 48 chances) at BB&T Center, which is most of any team in the league. It's been a different story on the road, where they have three power-play markers on 35 opportunities to rank 29th in the NHL.

Panthers head coach Gerard Gallant thought his team dictated the pace of Saturday's 5-4 OT loss to the Rangers.

"We played, in my opinion, one of the best team in the NHL, and we took it to them a little bit,’’ said Gallant. "I liked a lot of things we did. We had some great chances, there was no quit." The Panthers were down by two goals with under three minutes remaining, but stormed back with goals by Aleksander Barkov and Jaromir Jagr to force overtime. The Panthers also outshot the Rangers 43-31.

Florida coach Gerard Gallant didn't like his team's effort in a 1-0 loss to Philadelphia on Monday night.

"We were defending too much in the first two periods and not getting many opportunities," Gallant said. "I expected them to play a lot better. They're not going to lose 7-1 in their home opener. You pride yourself in playing 60 minutes and I thought we played 30." The Panthers had 14 shots in the third, but they couldn't beat Michal Neuvirth. Florida also went 0-for-6 on the power play.
