Panthers' weekend game broadcasts see big numbers on FOX Sports Florida

Cats hit the road with a few new viewers

A few more folks were tuned to FOX Sports Florida's game presentations over the past weekend. From FS-FLA:

  • This weekend’s Florida Panthers wins over the Rangers & Wild finished as 1st & 2nd most watched games of the year on FOX Sports Florida
  • This weekend's Florida Panthers games finished as most watched consecutive regular season games on FOX Sports Florida since Oct. 23-24, 2009
  • Saturday's win over the Rangers was most watched Florida Panthers game on FOX Sports Florida since November 9, 2013

It's worth noting both games were held in Sunrise, with huge nights at the box office (standing room/full sellout on the 2nd; 15,426 on the 3rd against a Western Conference non-factor). A seven-game stretch of consecutive victories heading into the Saturday/Sunday block may have something to do with it, but we're pleased whatever the reasoning.

The Cats begin a six-game roadie Tuesday in Buffalo (LBC GameThread at 6:30).
