On the Florida Panthers …
“There’s no big concern for me. I still feel good every day,” Ekblad said following the pregame skate at the BB&T Center. “I wake up and I don’t have headaches, so that’s great.”
The Panthers entered last night eight points out of the last playoff spot, with four teams to pass. GM/coach Tom Rowe.
“We’re still in a fight here to get that last playoff spot. We have every intention of playing it right to the very end.”
