Tuesday Caterwaul: Panthers GameDay Open Forum

DALLAS, TX - SEPTEMBER 29: Tomas Fleischmann #14 of the Florida Panthers falls in front of Alex Goligoski #33 of the Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center on September 29, 2011 in Dallas, Texas. (Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)

The Panthers have spent a total of 28:02 MORE on the power play than they have on the penalty kill this season. That's the 3rd best differential in the league. The Stars are on the opposite end of the spectrum having spent 25:00 MORE on the penalty kill than the power play (29th in the league). That's a 53 minute difference. That's a good way to give yourself the chance to win games if you're Florida.
