March 26, 2011
Sorry I am going to make this really short. Please go to George Richards' blog for a full recap.

BUFFALO - The Florida Panthers finally scored, but their efforts were futile. They fell to the Buffalo Sabres 4-2 Friday night. Drew Stafford had 2 goals and an assist, and Jason Pominville scored a goal while setting up a tip in goal by former Cat Jordan Leopold. After being down 1-0, the Panthers came back strong, tying the game at 1 on a Sergei Samsonov backhand goal. It was his 13th of the year. In the 3rd, the Panthers made it slightly less ugly, as Evegeny Dadonov had a wrist shot to make it 4-2. The goal was scored with just 3 seconds left in the game so, the Panthers had no shot at coming back.
CAT BYTES: The Panthers have been eliminated for an NHL Record setting 10th consecutive season.

The Florida Panthers take on the Pittsburgh Penguins in game 4 of their 5 game road trip. Florida is out of playoff contention, while Pittsburgh has clinched a playoff spot and sits comfortably in the #4 spot. For those keeping track at home, the Panthers sit 1 point out of the 3rd worst record in the NHL, the highest you can be to claim the #1 draft spot. The two teams have met twice this year, with Pittsburgh taking both games. Most recently, Matt Cooke had the GWG in a 5-2 win on December 22 in Pittsburgh. The Panthers were featured on HBO's 24/7 that night.They also found themselves on the losing end in Sunrise, falling 3-2 November 22. Chris Conner had the goal in that game.

FLA - Tomas Vokoun
