SUNRISE, Fla. – With their 4-3 shootout win over the Vancouver Canucks on Friday night, 25 fans left the BankAtlantic Center with a new flat screen television, as part of the Florida Panthers Super All-Star Match Up presented by Sharp, Aquos and TigerDirect.com. The Panthers gave away five flat screen televisions prior to the start of the game and an additional 20 flat screen televisions ranging in size from 37-46 inches wide each time the Cats scored a goal.
The following fans were the recipients of the 25 flat screen televisions Friday night:

We need to win at home and have the same support from our fans that we did Friday night against Vancouver on a consistent basis.”
