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

It's an incredible feeling just to see it go in and see the Joe go pretty crazy.  Ever since the introduction there, I was kind of feeling the nerves, and to put that one home, I started to feel comfortable and I thought my play started to pick up.
