The Panthers went 1-1-1 in three games this week as they continue to give everyone the textbook definition of an average season.

Jonathan Huberdeau had three assists, Nick Bjustad had three goals and a helper and Jimmy Hayes added a goal and two assists.

The Panthers continue to get points from shootout/overtime losses that mask the fact that they aren’t much better than last season.

Their only win came against the struggling San Jose Sharks in a game where San Jose dominated possession and couldn’t get any bounces.

Florida is going to have a tough time climbing out of seventh in the Atlantic, but they should be safe from the Sabres who, again, sit in 8th.
