Panthers, Devils set to play Game 1 Friday
After waiting more than a decade to return to the postseason, two more days will seem minimal for the Florida Panthers. In the last series to get underway in the first round of the 2011-12 Stanley Cup playoffs, Florida will end the longest postseason drought in the League when it faces the Devils Friday night at BankAtlantic Center.

The Devils and Panthers will drop the puck at 7 ET. Game 1 will be broadcast nationally on NHL Network in the U.S. and TSN in Canada.
Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
