The BankAtlantic Center isn't exactly a tough place to play. Florida's own television rightsholder [FS-FLA] declined to televise Tuesday's [Panthers] game because the Marlins and Heat are playing regular-season games.
My age group is when hockey really started growing in Florida. It was a fun thing to do. A lot of my friends' older brothers went to the Panthers' games and they'd always be playing street hockey. That's how I mostly started out was playing street hockey and it turned into ice.
