* Preview:

Forward Vincent Trocheck had two goals and an assist in the Florida Panthers' 4-1 win against the Colorado Avalanche on Oct. 27. All four of the Panthers' goals came on special teams, (three power-play, one shorthanded). Avalanche forward Gabriel Landeskog scored with less than a minute left to prevent a shutout for Florida goalie Roberto Luongo.  (More) Preview:

Though the Panthers are amid a 4-1-2 stretch overall, they have lost six of nine road games since winning a team-record six straight Dec. 15-Jan. 10. Florida had lost in Columbus and Minnesota to begin a five-game trip before winning Tuesday. The Avalanche (32-29-4) are among the league's worst home teams at 14-14-4 and have fallen out of the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference by losing three of four overall. Eleven of the 19 goals they've allowed during that stretch have come in the third period. Minnesota scored three times, two into an empty net, in the third of Colorado's 6-3 loss Tuesday.  (More)
