WASHINGTON -- The Florida Panther's quest for their first win of the season brings them to Washington on Friday night to face the Stanley Cup champion Capitals.
Florida (0-2-2) lost to the Philadelphia Flyers 6-5 in a shootout Tuesday to match the franchise record for futility to start a season, which was set in 2000-01. The Panthers endured a five-goal second period but rallied to earn a point.
"We scored five goals on the road. We won the special teams battle and were the more aggressive," coach Bob Boughner told the Miami Herald. "So, there's a lot of good, but still some bad in our game we've got to eliminate."
