The Cats currently sit first in the Southeast Division with the third seed in the Eastern Conference – two points ahead of the Washington Capitals and four points ahead of the Buffalo Sabres.
We control our own destiny, and we need each and every one of our fans to “Believe RED” and pack the BankAtlantic Center this week for two of the biggest regular season home games this franchise has ever had.
It’s been an incredible year thus far. When General Manager Dale Tallon and his staff remade this team over the summer, it was difficult to predict how we would perform. Regardless, there was palpable buzz and excitement surrounding this franchise that we hadn’t experienced in years.
And this team has delivered on that excitement, playing an aggressive and passionate brand of hockey all year round and occupying first place in the Southeast Division for the majority of the season.
We’ve been through six months and 78 games of incredible, edge of your seat Panthers hockey. We’ve seen this team, and our fans, fight and claw for every inch of progress and territory.
But now, with only 12 periods of hockey remaining this regular season, it is time for us all to come together and push this team over the finish line. Our staff is working hard to continue building the buzz around the stretch run, our players and coaches are focusing on the task at hand and taking it one game at a time, and I know our fans are geared up and ready to support this team during every tense and exciting moment that remains.
Only four more games – four more games to “Believe RED” and support our Cats like only we can.
