With the Olympic break just around the corner, and a feverish stretch run immediately following, there’s no better time than the present to go on a hot streak, and Coach Pete DeBoer’s Cats have done just that thanks to a big jump in play from players like Rostislav Olesz and Cory Stillman.
Tomas Vokoun has been incredible in-between the pipes the last few games, and fans have to be excited that the Panthers, 3-0-1 in their last four, have had this recent success without the top line of Nathan Horton, Stephen Weiss
and Michael Frolik carrying the team on their back.
Olesz himself has five goals in his last four games, and is playing some of the best hockey of his career, while Stillman had his best game since returning from injury with two goals and assist in the win over Tampa on Saturday night.
It should be an exciting game tonight against Atlanta, as only one point separates the two teams and we are both fighting for positioning in the Southeast Division, and the Eastern Conference.
That said, I also want to remind our season ticket holders that the 2010-11 Renewal Campaign has begun and you should be receiving your renewal packet starting this week. Our theme this year is “True Blue,” as we reward our season ticket holders that stay “True” to their team with incredible incentives.
As I’ve said in the past, being a season ticket holder with the Florida Panthers is the best value in professional sports, and with a host of new benefits this year, to go along with the existing perks, as well as frozen prices, that value will be even better for 2010-11.
Finally, tonight we are looking forward to hosting our second Project Unite event, this time with the City of Coral Springs. For those of you who don’t know, Project Unite is a new initiative designed to gain the support of local business leaders in SSE’s overall effort to continue to raise the profile and notoriety of the South Florida community.
Our inaugural event took place last Wednesday with the City of Sunrise and generated an incredible response from everyone in attendance, and we’re hoping for a similar reception tonight when the city that houses our wonderful practice facility incredible ICE, brings its local business leaders to the BankAtlantic Center.
That said, our organization remains focused on another crucial game tonight against the Atlanta Thrashers as the Cats look to stay hot before they head out on the road.
Thanks for reading and go Panthers.
