The Florida Panthers will interview Bob Boughner for the team's vacant head coaching job this week.

The Panthers got permission from San Jose to speak to Boughner earlier this month. Boughner may be Buffalo's radar as well, according to TSN's Pierre LeBrun, but it's believed that the Sabres have not reached out to the Sharks yet to talk to him. Other candidates for Florida and Buffalo include Jim Montgomery, Michel Therrien and Phil Housley. Housley can't be interviewed until after the Stanley Cup Final because he is still with the Predators.
