Good morning and welcome to the latest addition of Rats Roundup!
The Cats are coming home for a three-game homestand after sweeping a road trip, a new episode of "Inside the Panthers" and more! Sit back, relax and catch up on all the latest Panthers news!
New York State of Mind
The Panthers went on a two-game road trip straight out of the gate after their All-Star break, and so far they have not disappointed. The Cats picked up two crucial wins against the Islanders and Buffalo in their race to claw back into the playoff picture. Rookie goaltender Harri Sateri picked up his first two career wins on the trip, and the Panthers have benefited from tight defense and timely goal scoring from their blueline.
A three-game homestand begins February 3rd against the Detroit Red Wings. Come out to BB&T Center to cheer on the Cats as they continue their playoff push.

Barkov Impresses in Tampa Bay
Last weekend, Aleksander Barkov took part in his first NHL All-Star Game. Barkov took part in the Skills Competition as well as notching a pair of assists during the All-Star Game's 3-on-3 tournament.
"I love everything," Barkov, 22, said after the All-Star Game at Amalie Arena on Sunday. "Just to be around these guys and meet everybody and see how good of guys they are, it'll be more fun to go forward and play against them now."
