Florida Panthers – 7th Atlantic Division

Florida went 2-0-1 on the week to inch closer to the Leafs and Senators in the Atlantic Division standings.

Regulation wins against San Jose and Anaheim and a shootout loss to the New York Islanders is how they got there. The Panthers scored an impressive 13 goals in their three games for the week.

Jussi Jokinen led the way with 5 assists while Aaron Ekblad chipped in with a goal and three assists. The Panthers rookie defender is coming into his own early in his career and Florida is reaping the benefits of his solid play.

Al Montoya was in goal for the Anaheim victory an Roberto Luongo received the other two stars.

Florida is now seven points up on the Buffalo Sabres in 7th  and only three back of the Toronto Maple Leafs, with three games in hand, for 6th in the Atlantic Division.
