Good morning and welcome to the latest edition of Rats Roundup!

The Cats are hosting two games this weekend in Sunrise, vote your favorite Panther for the 2020 NHL All-Star Game and more! Sit back, relax and catch up on all the latest Panthers news!

Busy Weekend at BB&T Center

This weekend, the Panthers will welcome the Columbus Blue Jackets and San Jose Sharks to Sunrise. It will be the first time this season the Cats will play against both teams as the Panthers look to solidify their standing in a tightly contested Atlantic Division.

Saturday's game against Columbus will also be the fourth 'Territory Takeover' night of the season as we celebrate the city of Boca Raton. Fans who live in Boca Raton and Deerfield Beach can use their resident ID to receive special discounts at concession stands and special pricing on domestic beers at the Coors Light Cold Zone.

On Sunday, the Panthers will take on the Sharks at 5 p.m. But for those who are early risers or just want to enjoy some sun, come celebrate Yoda Day with us on the JetBlue Tarmac at 10 a.m.

By purchasing a special ticket package, you receive a one-hour yoga session, a Panthers yogi tank top and one ticket to the Sharks game that night or to the Dec. 10 game against the Lightning. To get your package, click HERE and namaste!

Territory Talk

On this week's episode of the Territory Talk podcast, Florida Panthers goaltender Chris Driedger sat down with Jameson Olive and Doug Plagens for a nice long chat about picking up the win in his first NHL start, the long and winding road it took for him to get there and his mindset moving forward.

Jameson and Panthers digital host Katie Gaus also took some time to break down the team's impressive shutout win over Nashville, tough loss to Minnesota and the road ahead of the team's franchise-record homestand.
