GameDay Caterwaul: Florida Panthers at Vancouver Canucks

Cats looking for first win of five-game road trip

The fifth place Florida Panthers (10-9-4) are on Canada’s Pacific coast tonight and will be looking to snap a three-game losing streak when they face the Vancouver Canucks (9-11-3) at Rogers Arena. Florida is coming off Tuesday’s embarrassing 6-2 defeat to the Calgary Flames, which left them with just one win, over Boston, in their last seven games. After sweeping a three-game road trip, the Canucks returned home and were soundly beaten 5-1 by Alex Ovechkin, who made a little history, and the Washington Capitals. Despite, all their troubles, the Panthers are just two points out of a playoff spot, but they need to turn the tide, and fast.
