The Florida Panthers have shown they have plenty of resolve and resiliency this season, that is not their problem. The issue remains how frequently they have had to call upon that attitude because of falling behind early.
The Florida Panthers receive some bad news all the way from the Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. The teams' only Olympic representatives Tomas Kopecky (concussion) and Aleksander Barkov (knee) suffered injuries during the preliminary round and will miss the remainder of the Olympics. Reports suggest both could be out for an extended period of time, perhaps the remainder of the season.
