Panthers get routed by the Jets posted by Florida Panthers Fan
The Florida Panthers were decimated Friday night by Winnipeg Jets off a historic 4 goal night by Jet’s wingman Perreault.
Dave Bolland and Brad Boyes scored for the Florida Panthers, which finished 4-2-0 on a six-game trip.
Boyes said the Panthers made too many mistakes.
"I think my son who's 11 months now, he probably could have scored a couple tonight, too," Boyes said. "It wasn't the way that we normally play." The Panthers will need to do some serious regrouping as they return from their road trip to fill up the glaring holes that appeared Friday night, namely the man guarding the net.
Roverto Luongo started in net for Florida, but was pulled with 13:23 left in the second period in favor of Al Montoya after letting in four goals on 20 shots. Montoya stopped 11 of the 15 shots he faced.

The Jets led 2-0 just past the midway point of the opening period on Perreault's first two goals and made it 3-0 early in the second.
The first goal came after Winnipeg capitalized on a Florida turnover just inside the Panthers' blue line. Mark Scheifele got the puck and sent it across to Frolik at the point, whose shot went off the backboards. Defenseman Zach Bogosian picked up the ricochet and passed the puck to Perreault in front, who flipped it past Luongo for his 12th goal of the season at 7:24.
"We had a great trip, but to end it off like this with a performance like tonight, we're disappointed," Florida coach Gerard Gallant said. "So it wasn't one guy, it wasn't one line. It was every player on our team. We've just got to regroup tomorrow, go back home and get ready for the next game."Continue reading "Panthers get routed by the Jets"
