OTTAWA -- Florida Panthers forward Jaromir Jagr made it clear what he expects from his teammates in their final game of the regular season on against the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday.

Jagr, who scored the only goal in the Panthers 3-1 loss to the Ottawa Senators at Canadian Tire Centre on Thursday, said the Panthers (46-26-9), who won the Atlantic Division title, can't afford to have the same kind of effort against the Hurricanes.

Situation Room: Senators' goal overturned

4/7/16: After a coach's challenge, it is determined that the Senators were offside, overturning Mika Zibanejad's goal in the 1st period

  • 00:54 •

At 1:41 of the first period in the Panthers/Senators game, Florida requested a Coach's Challenge to review whether Ottawa's Mika Zibanejad was off-side prior to his goal.

After reviewing all available replays and consulting with NHL Hockey Operations staff, the Linesman determined that Zibanejad was off-side prior to the goal. According to Rule 78.7, "The standard for overturning the call in the event of a 'GOAL' call on the ice is that the Linesman, after reviewing any and all available replays and consulting with the Toronto Video Room, determines that one or more Players on the attacking team preceded the puck into the attacking zone prior to the goal being scored and that, as a result, the play should have been stopped for an "Off-side" infraction; where this standard is met, the goal will be disallowed."

Behind The Numbers

Panthers more than a one-man show

Numbers show Florida a solid team from top to bottom

by Rob Vollman / Correspondent

One of the success stories of the 2015-16 NHL season is the Florida Panthers. The reasons for their turnaround that resulted in the Atlantic Division title go far beyond their legendary leading scorer, Jaromir Jagr.

Though it's impressive that Jagr, 44, is leading the Panthers with 64 points, his age-defying play is one of many reasons the Panthers clinched a berth in Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time in four seasons, set a new team record for points and won their division for the second time in their 22-season history.
