Panthers' Jovanovski could miss 2 months
The Florida Panthers announced today that defenseman Ed Jovanovski will have hand surgery today to fix a hand injury suffered Monday against the Boston Bruins.

No return time was specified by the club, but the Miami Herald is reporting Jovanovski could miss up to two months.

Jovanovski suffered the injury in a first-period fight with the Bruins' Daniel Paille.

The 35-year-old Jovanovski, who returned to the Panthers this season after spending the first four seasons of his NHL career with Florida, has 2 goals and 8 points in 43 games, and has been an important leader on a young defense.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
