X-Factors for Raiders vs. Chargers

+

These are the variables that could be pivotal in seeing who comes out on top between the Las Vegas Raider and Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday The Las Vegas Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers both come into their game on Sunday with neither team being able to afford a bad loss. It makes the opportunity for x-factors to step into the fold and make the key difference a big one, and we'll get into those below.

Last-place Patriots Lose 3d Straight to Buffalo, 24-10

+

Josh Allen threw for 223 yards and two touchdowns on Thursday night to lead the Buffalo Bills to a 24-10 victory over the Patriots, their third straight victory over New England. It's the first time the Bills have beaten the Patriots three times in a row since 2000 - before Tom Brady took his first NFL snap. "These games get bigger and bigger. So when you fall short, it's disappointing," Patriots defensive back Devin McCourty said. ""We have some time. We need to regroup, reset, decide what we want the rest of our season to be."

Florida Panthers make roster cuts as season-opener approaches

+

The Florida Panthers placed six players on waivers and assigned exempt prospect Logan Hutsko to the Charlotte Checkers in advance of the club needing to submit a salary cap compliant roster ($82.5 million) at 5 p.m. this afternoon. Getting waived from Panthers camp were goaltender Alex Lyon; defensemen Michael Del Zotto and Lucas Carlsson; and forwards Chris Tierney, Gerald Mayhew and Aleksi Heponiemi, who scored in the last two preseason games. Those players will need to clear waivers later today to join the Checkers. While most players make it through, I’m a little bit concerned the Cats will lose Heponiemi and/or Carlsson as both players look to be NHL ready. As of this moment, Eric Staal (PTO) has not been signed to a contract and prospect Matt Kiersted, who has a cap hit $50K less than that of Carlsson is still in Sunrise.

What Paul Maurice Brings the Florida Panthers

+

The Florida Panthers decided on a new head coach Wednesday, surprising some observers by not making interim coach Andrew Brunette a permanent fixture behind their bench, but instead going with veteran Paul Maurice. There are plenty of great head coaching candidates out there – Brunette included – but it makes sense that Panthers GM Bill Zito decided on Maurice, who has 1,665 games of NHL experience, as well as two conference final appearances and one Stanley Cup Final to his credit. For this Florida team, at this point in its competitive cycle, Zito didn’t want someone learning on the job. And Maurice brings a cool, calm factor that the veteran-laden Panthers roster can emulate on the ice. Zito could’ve gone off the mainstream path and gone with an unproven commodity, the way the Edmonton Oilers did this past season when they replaced Dave Tippett with Jay Woodcroft. However, sticking with Brunette, especially after the Panthers were steamrolled by Tampa Bay in a second-round sweep this spring, was clearly not Zito’s first choice. There may come a day when Brunette is the right choice for a franchise, but the longer the hiring process took, the more it became apparent Zito wanted someone who has been through the wringer before, and came out of it with a legitimate Cup frontrunner. more: World Juniors Live

Florida Panthers interested in Finland coach Jukka Jalonen. Who is he?

+

According to Frank Seravalli, the Florida Panthers are reportedly adding Finland national coach Jukka Jalonen to their potential coaching search. Jalonen, 59, has coached in Finland for over 30 years, assignments which include several stints coaching the national team since 2008. In 2022, Jalonen was behind the bench when Finland won its first Olympic Gold. Jalonen also coached Anton Lundell to a silver medal in the 2021 IIHF World Championship but has not coached Sasha Barkov.

I wanted to do a snapchat, to share some Panther action, with my friends. I happened to start recording, just prior to the goal. I was so excited that I captured it as it happened!
