Sergei Bobrovsky already has two Vezina Trophies, the award handed out at the end of each season to the NHL’s top goaltender. He’s not looking for a third. For the Florida Panthers’ new goalie, only one trophy matters now. He believes the Stanley Cup can come his new team’s way.

The Florida Panthers are hoping for deja vu. Sort of. A year ago, the Panthers shook off a disastrous start to the season and caught fire after the All-Star break – only to miss the playoffs by a single point. This year, they’re heading into the break on a three-game winning streak and playing perhaps their best hockey of the season after spending the first three months of the year sputtering near the bottom of the NHL. So here they go again, trying for another late and improbable playoff push.

Shawn Thornton has been hired as the Florida Panthers’ new vice president of business operations. He moves into the front office after a 20-year career on the ice, one in which he was part of two Stanley Cup championship runs with the Boston Bruins. Thornton retired as a member of the Panthers back in April.
Shawn Thornton battled for years in the minors before finally getting to the NHL, and now he’s preparing to say farewell. Thornton’s final game as a player is Saturday when Florida plays Buffalo, the end of a 20-year professional career.

When 44-year-old Jaromir Jagr notched his 1,888th point on Thursday to move into second place all-time behind Mark Messier (but still far behind Wayne Gretzky’s 2,857) it would be hard to imagine that this Mt. Rushmore of hockey legends will be threatened in their lifetimes or perhaps ever.
