Panthers finally get to play
The NHL season enters its fourth day on Sunday, and the Florida Panthers will finally get to lace up their skates and play.

The Panthers become the last of the 30 teams to open their season when they step onto the ice at Rexall Place for an 8 p.m. ET faceoff, one of three games on the schedule. They face a tough assignment -- the Oilers have had two days off since opening their season with a 4-0 victory over Calgary on Thursday night.

The Flames also play at 8 -- they host the Los Angeles Kings, who opened their season on Saturday with a 2-1 shootout win at Vancouver.

The day opens at 10 a.m. ET when the Phoenix Coyotes and Boston Bruins meet in the second game of their Compuware NHL Premiere series in Prague. The Coyotes, the home team for Sunday's game, won 5-2 on Saturday.
Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
