THN: Aaron Ekblad on course for historic first season

12

Ekblad’s 18 points put him on pace for 57 in 82 games, which would give him the second-most points all-time for a blueliner in his age-18 season.

An outstanding collection of Florida Panthers fans in recent photos of, well, Florida Panthers fans. Full kudos to our pal Lucas (@LukeVader79) - who regularly produces terrific commentary - for an astounding effort via YouTube. Nice job, man.

ESPN Kind to the Cats? Where Are the Flying Pigs?!

@ESPN_Burnside: Don't look now, but the Florida Panthers are charging. Okay, maybe charging is too strong a word. Creeping? Regardless, their impressive 4-1 win over San Jose at home on Tuesday night gave them points in eight of their last 10 games as they moved over the .500 mark at 5-4-4. The offense is slowly coming around, although they still rank 28th in the league in goals per game. But most nights they are playing a solid defensive game (they are tied with Boston for 10th in goals allowed per game) and as long as Roberto Luongo -- who has all of the team's victories this season -- is in goal the Panthers have a shot. Gerard Gallant's plucky squad will face a real test next week, though, when they embark on a tough road trip that will take them to Anaheim, Los Angeles, San Jose and Nashville. If the Panthers can collect five or more points on that trip, maybe it'll be time to give them a little more credit than we have thus far. If they bottom out, there'll be more talk of Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel.

"I never go into a game thinking about [getting into a fight]. I haven't for a long time. They're pretty banged up, I think a lot of their toughness is actually out of their lineup. But you never know. I'd beat up my own sister if it got us two points. So it really doesn't matter to me."

Florida's Shawn Thornton, commenting on his first trip to Boston since signing with the Panthers. Keep it in context here, kids; the guy's got a unique wit. More from the Sun-Sentinel here, including some injury talk heading into Tuesday's action vs the Broons.

Obviously this is not the Florida of old. They've got a good, young team. Skilled. Fast. They play the game really fast.

[Gudas] mentioned to me, 'That's what you get for squirting me with Gatorade.' I guess if you squirt a guy with Gatorade you get a blindside elbow to the lips.
