Ups & Downs is a feature that looks at the individual performances of your Panthers over the past week.
2011-12 Florida Panthers
27-17-11 (59 points), 1st in Southeast Division, 3rd in Eastern Conference, 11th in League
Goals For: 141 (22nd of 30), Goals Against: 152 (13th of 30)
Biggest Gain: Sean Bergenheim
Bergenheim's hot streak continues with a two goal week, where he scored the game tying goal against the Devils and opening goal against the Kings. With 11 goals, Bergenheim is only four way from tying his career high (15 in 08-09).
Biggest Loss: Krys Barch
You know your team had a good week when the team enforcer is the only minus of the week. Barch was a healthy scratch against the Islanders for Jack Skille, and his weekly performance didn't help. Barch scored zero points, zero penalties minutes (currently on a four game PIM drought, his longest of the season), and two hits. As the bodies come back, we're likely to see less of Barch.
