Here they go again: Panthers hoping for late-season surge

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.

After perfect trip, Florida Panthers back in playoff picture

The Florida Panthers came into the season talking about the Stanley Cup. Now, they’re finally looking like a team that may contend for hockey’s top prize.

Jaromir Jagr’s marks in NHL history may never be topped

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.
