"That's how we need to play every game," - Barkov on tonight's win.

Hear more from the team.

Julie Dewey Too late. Love a cat's win but thanks to Rowe we had too few..can't someone wake up and see the problem before the puck drops next season...going out on a limb but I bet pucker face is still with us in the fall
Frank Santamaria Always great to see Thornton hit the score sheet. Marshy is a sniper, but how about the set-ups from Barky and Vanek? Strong work, team!
Perry Schwartz Have a little faith we may be done for this year but there's is always next year to try again we need to get rid of Rowe he is bringing us down if we do that then the panthers should have a better session gods knows this session has been horrible from the start we have what it takes to win but some stuff needs to be changed for next year.
Jade Carrillo If only we could play high caliber teams like Arizona every night πŸ˜› Tom Rowe Gotta Go
Alex Meckel Well said guys. Nice win still playing hard. I can respect that.
Martin Lausik Bulva You should have played previously, it says every match this talk
Scott Dyer Hey guys just win them all and we'll see what happens. No time like the present for excitement.
Jill Greenstein Fine Glad to have been there. Great game! Go Cats! Never give up!
Mark Porcelli only took them 68 games to figure it out
Noah Zilbs Finally they didn't put Rowe in video
Wilfrid Whitney One of their best north-south games in a while
William Swafford Thornton, Mr Hands πŸ™‚
Gerald Kuntz TOTALLY A DIFFERENT TEAM--- LOVED IT--IF THEY PLAYED THAT HARD I WOULD NEVER THINK OF GIVING UP MY SEASON TICKETS

CATS WIIIIIIINNNNNNNN

Jesse Shragie Why did we fire the coach, so we could take a nosedive and miss the playoffs? Management and ownership should be absolutely ashamed, destroyed a successful lineup. I expect apologies for this fiasco.
Shaun Miller To lil to late and even if they make the playoffs there won't be a playoff run cause this team is one game on f f fire and plays very well to the next game looks like they shouldn't even be on the ice it's pathetic
Ev Kotlikov Pathetic organization, a humiliating and disappointing season. Worst in franchise history. So much talent yet sitting at the back of the conference.
Jill Greenstein Fine I'm not happy with everything that went down this year. But love my Cats and will always cheer for them. They will right the ship next year.
Andy Carrasco I guess firing coaches mid season and changing our kickass logo to that ridiculously sad Lion Kings Nala jersey didn't help much,huh?
Jorge Ortiz glad to see the panthers won great to see you guys still battling for wins hope we can end season on positive finish season with wins and healthy and come next year have full lineup and start season strong
Josh McLeod That's a miracle. Rowe has taken this team from division champions to lucky to pull out a win. Really sad, looked like the panthers were turning a new leaf last year.
Alex Meckel I'll take the win in my birthday. They are still fighting you have to respect that. Season didn't go the way it was expected but glad to see them still battling
Carlos F Herdocia Against the young and lowly Arizona Coyotes.....come on now, nothing to brag about really. This is a win on paper most nights. Smh πŸ™„
Perry Schwartz Yew a little fate the panthers have what it takes to win games and even a stanly cup but I looks like this year that won't happen but there is always next year to try again we had a terrible session this year mostly because of injuries of our good players at least we won this game but that doesn't matter because we aren't making the playoffs like we did last year that's a shame because I know if we would have done better early on in the session we would have a playoff spot but that's not the case this year might as well wait until next session to try again.
Kevin Thistle Awesome game last night/ even with the Arizona goalkeeper trying to cheat, what terrible attempt to pull the goal off the poles.
Antti Tolsa Thank you for the Win and for this Puck <3
Jade Carrillo Good win despite Tom Rowe! Sean Thornton is a scoring machine!
Damen Montanez A day late and a dollar short. 7 points behind Boston 10 points behind Toronto.
Jermu RitamÀki TÀmmâset pittee pojat voittaa. Ei tule mittÀÀ jos pisteet vain annetais pois
Marlena Wirtes Kay Great game!! A home win and the rats hit the ice! Go Cats!!
Jamal Devon Givens Finally, they should have played like this in their previous games.
Tabatha Miller Good game tonight! Wish they would be more consistent
Herb Chalik We proved we could beat a bad team on home ice.great job?
Patrick McAvaney Great win! Rowe still sucks.
Michelle Gabriela Guy Gregory
Ezra Fitch A win at home!! I can't believe it πŸŽ‰πŸΎGo Cats
Cameron Dietz Logan Jara and that's a Florida Panthers FIRST down.
Gunther Schenk Fire Rowe

Renew your 2017-18 season tix before tomorrow’s deadline & you could win a Panthers road trip like this one.

Join Our House Β» http://atnhl.com/2knIOYc

Bill Foy All about supporting my home teams but got to show me a winner. This season was a big 2 steps back and had nothing to do with injuries didn't do that well when they came back. Shouldn't have gotten rid of Gallant
Matt Stevens Not after this season. You sign the coach to a contract extension, then you fire him after two of the big stars are out for most of the season. The team took a few steps back this season, we would of been in the playoffs if we kept the coach
Vaclav Havlicek I'm afraid they will have a serious problem with attendance next season if they don't get rid of Rowe.
Harley Kesselman I bet if the team fires Rowe there will be a big jump in renewals.
Julie Dewey Maybe in two years...show me next year we are back on track then I will consider it
Joshua Meeks Fire Rowe and i will.
Harley Kesselman It's pick a seat night at BB&T Center !
Attila Pazmandi Fire rowe from this organization first!!!!!!
Bill Crippen Why is the "N" backwards in "FANS?"
Craig Toman Yeah right...
Matt Keysers April fools is next week guys duh
Debbie Fritz Quincy Done. Now let's get a good new coach & try to stay healthier!
Indomitable positive mentality in action > Impressed with The Florida Panthers for sure .

The Florida PanthersThursday, March 23rd, 2017 at 1:34pm

Hear from Barkov & Rowe following today's morning skate.

Mike Speers Rowe's the greatest B. S. artist ever, and Vinnie Viola is the most gullible man on Earth. C'mon Vinnie get rid of Rowe and his analytics team now! Should be a good game tonight in front of 3,000 fans.
Miroslav Fedor That's right Rowe. It was awful year ,but only because you kick out Gallant and you take his position and ruined all. I believe if Gallant will be coach sense beginning ,Panthers will have better records and they will have a lot better position then they have now. This talented team deserve better coach they are strong enough to play on top and fight for the cup !!! What a shame...
Lee Schlesinger The fact that The Panthers continue to parade Tom Rowe in front of the cameras and on social media is absolutely infuriating to me. Have some more respect for your fans than having to subject them to this guy's BS. #rowemustgo
Jorge Ortiz there's no need to comment this seasons over thanks Rowe the players and fans deserve better with the talent we have we should be fighting for top seeds in Division unfortunately were waiting for season to end
Jade Carrillo It wasn't an awful year it was an awful coach. Clueless behind the bench. Cmon Tom admit it. You suck as a coach and GM. Thanks for making us mediocre again!
Mike Speers The man at the top,the man of unimpeachable integrity is to blame. C'mon Vinnie we fans deserve an apology! Where's Vinnie?
Cameron Confuorti I'm glad people are starting to realize how bad Rowe really is. People thought I was crazy when I complained about the offseason moves and freaked out about firing Gallant. Give Rowe a chance they said. Rowe is what we have now, so get used to it, they said. Well I stand by the point I made several months ago. This clown has got to go.
Harley Kesselman February 23, 2017: "We're going to the playoffs." -Tom Rowe March 23, 2017: "It's been an awful year." -Tom Rowe
Jorge Ortiz 1st get a real coach in here second we need a couple of big physical players on this team that can lay a player on his back every once in a while
Doug Holmes 'it's been an awful year' -Tom Rowe That is the first time I had the thought that maybe he does know whats going on.
Mitch Buchwalter Gallant 11-10-1 Rowe 21-20-10 What a great fix! Terrific decision! You're fired!
Sammy Valiante If only there was a rule to forfeit the games and everybody goes on off season mode. And start again in Sept.
Julie Dewey Fire Rowe
Attila Pazmandi
Antti Tolsa I'll Be there today
Mitch Buchwalter Rowe, you gotta move on.

Don't lose your 3% Cats Ca$h!

Renew or purchase your 2017-18 Ticket Plan by this Friday.

Β» http://bit.ly/CatsCash

Megan Kauffman McKeon I doubt you will get many season ticket holders for next year, what with the way things have gone under Rowe's "leadership". Even if I had the money for season tickets I would never do it out of principle- the ownership took a fantastic team/coach with tons of potential and decimated it. It's pitiful.
Veronika Ferra Cassidy I won't renew my season tickets with that kind of product. They raise the season tickets by 17% and give us 3% back? No thank you. We're not interested, especially with Rowe being a coach/GM that make an easy decision to not renewing​ my season tickets.
Darrin Silverman If you want people to purchase season tickets you need to resign Jagr, he is the best thing about the Florida Panthers. Without Jagr the Panthers would barely even get a mention on the NHL telecast. Lets face it the Panthers this year are an average team. Your goals per game and power play ranked near the bottom. Trocheck and Marchessault may have more points than Jagr but Jagr is a plus 11 while Vinny is a -15 and Johnathon is a -22. I think just the fact that you have a 45 year that has played in every game and could score his age is amazing.
Jason L. Eldridge Increased prices and less rewards for being a season ticket holder... I see no moves from mgt to suggest they have any real desire to take this team anywhere except out of Florida. #rowemustgo
James Hart I think ticket sales will go way down,because The Florida Panthers refused to hire a good coach.they are Coach by Tom Rowe ,the worst coach in the NHL.He took a good team and made them a non-playoff team.
David Kessler Including this playoffless season, the Panthers have made the playoffs 5 times in 23 years (a .217 playoff average) & haven't won a playoff series since the 1996 season. This is in a league where over 1/2 the teams make the playoffs every year. Who in their right mind wants to give management their money months in advance, so they can watch this futility up close on a nightly basis. Stay home & watch the Panthers stink up the ice on your big screen HD TV.
Matt Yas-Zaf Your fans want Rowe gone before they renew anything! #fireRowe #RoweMustGo
John Mitchell Fire Rowe
Shawn Hawkins .... I'll always be a fan, but I'll never buy season tickets. I can't even afford rent down here
Michael Bub The team will be better next year !!
Henrik Lilja Fire Rowe as coach and Gm. Get rid of him.
William Terry WHY???
Matthew Philbrook can I use cats cash to fire rowe?
Dan Arsenault Just nope! Not with Rowe here.
Tommy Wilson Nah I'm good. #firerowe and we'll talk.
Sam Poulos Your season ticket base:
Tommy Paterson J.J. Woods Interested?

The Florida PanthersTuesday, March 21st, 2017 at 10:44pm

Barkov, Berra and Rowe give their thoughts after tonight's game.

Alex Meckel Talk about justify his plan failing by saying you need to go through this. He is a clown. This team was on the serious up. Stop trying to sell us on this epic fail
Do Robert Rowe has to be fired as the GM. He screwed up everything from the beginning when he took over in the summer with the trades, than he fired a good coach.All the chemistry is gone from the last season.
Scott Herron Rowe is an idiot. Good job panthers. All this talent and coached by a guy who couldn't grocery shop without getting lost.
Joe Kennedy I'm still in shock of what happened to this season. So much talent, this was our time. Rowe is a fool and has no place as a coach or a GM let alone both! He's set us back years.
Richard Bard Hopefully Vinnie & Doug have handed full control of the team back to Dale. The Analytics Only Approach has failed miserably. It doesn't at all account for Grit, Charachter and Chemistry.
Michael Meyers Vinnie & Doug have made some positive moves by signing key players to long term deals. For that they need to be congratulated. By the same token they've made dumb moves, i.e firing Gallant. For that they need to apologize to players and fans. And find a exceptional replacement for Rowe. The guys a loser.
Clare Florio Anthon OMG.. have been a many games, but first time in the glass row. You guys are HUGE. WOW I missed the boat...why did it take so long for s Florida to get with Ice Hockey?
Bill Fyfe Fire Rowe. What is this an experiment. This is a professional hockey team , not somebody's toy. Hello, hello is the ownership asleep at the wheel. Maybe 7500 tonite. Lucky to see 5000 on Thursday. πŸ€”
Dave Hladil Players are without motivation, frustrated, without energy so you can't expect miracles from them. This season is lost anyway. There isn't any system in theirs playing 😏. It's time to think and prepare for next season with proper coaching.
Adolfo Mejia Fire Rowe enough said. And next season hiring an experience coach. And a new third jersey going back to the old logo but instead of red home jersey let it be gold jersey. ✌🏽
Paul Ryan Christle Rowe is a joke of GM, a coach, and a leader. He calls out his players to the media, separates himself from the team when they lose, and blames everyone but himself.
Jade Carrillo This team will not move forward until Tom Rowe is gone totally. No coaching and no GM.
Dennis Wood Feel bad for this guy..world class athlete..has to deal with this...the whole team is in a bad place..coaching is a mess..ownership is clueless..players are treading just not a good season end
JR Alexander Just remember: this is the organization that could've hired Claude Julien but they passed in favor of Rowe. #neverforget #douevenwanttowin
Mike Smith Poor Barkov. Hope he gets a chance to gtfo of here and join a team to have a chance at the Cup. Like Ray Whitney and Rob Niedermayer did.
Gunther Schenk Call Rowe a cab and make him pay for it.
Harley Kesselman "Failing is part of the process." -Tom Rowe. Actual quote tonight
Keith Berman Wonderful Rowe you idiot ! We've been going through " tough times " since you been a coach, when is it going to end !
Mitch Buchwalter Hey Rowe, we were moving forward until you made your decision to take over. Now fire yourself too. You have failed...
Philip DiPatrizio Reading you idiots comment on Facebook is making me want to renew my season tickets even more. Bunch of fairweather pricks.
Lee Schlesinger I will cancel my season tickets if Tom Rowe is involved in this organization on any level next season. #RoweMustGo
Noah Zilbs We were forward until you Tom Rowe showed up in the panthers organization
Mark Weinstock Barkov is a stud......the game comes easy to him. The rest there are questions.
Zachary Bruckner LMAOOO "They have really good sticks" - yup that's what this "coach" literally said
Jim Richards I think Montreal was the lucky one to get Julien, would have been interesting to see what Gallant would do tho.
The Florida Panthers
The Florida PanthersTuesday, March 21st, 2017 at 10:03pm

Final.

Patrick McAvaney See this Panthers? This is the look of a coach that has no idea what the hell he's doing....fire this clown already! I could coach better than this guy.
Gunther Schenk Karma is so awesome. I hope that ownership and management learned a lesson this season to NOT dismantle a team that proved to be the best in franchise history.
Lizette Casas Time to look forward to next season. So much talent on the ice, simply wasted πŸ™ and a chain of bad decision making from Panthers ownership starting the night coach Gallant had to take a cab home after getting fired. Hockey deserves better ownership and leadership in South Florida.
Greg Greg Where did we all go wrong.. Oh yeah.. You signed a bunch of nobodys.. Fired your Eastern confrence allstar coach. Traded half the Defense... Gave a man with no hockey IQ the reigns... Ekblads wearing an A.. Mckenenzie is on the 4th line when he should be centering Marchesault and Vanek... Riley should be in the minors holding hands with Bjugstad.. While thorton Greg mckegg and scarbosa run the 4th line.. And scevior wings for trochek. We need 2 more clones of Petrovic.. and free parking.
Carlos F Herdocia 20-30 under "coach" Rowe now. 11-11 was Gallant's record when fired. We've gone 8-12 in last 20 games with 10 games still left. We needed to go 20-10 in last 30 to have even a shot at a playoff spot. We need to win next 10 just just to finish at .500. Not even the "loser" points helped us. Can't use the injury excuse anymore either folks. How is this a better team than last year's squad again? Thank you ownership for gutting our team and killing chemistry last offseason. πŸ€”πŸ˜œ
Noah Zilbs Tom Rowe you shouldn't be a youth hockey coach....you rest a goalie not even on back to back nights.... and you have must win games and you play 3rd goalie... pitiful excuse for a coach... you should fire yourself.... we believe in Tallon
Kyle Pehlke I'm a panther fan for life but this coach has to go. I feel for the players. They really don't want to listen to him and I don't blame them. Just sucks we have to watch it all.
Jason Coupal I guess my move to Tampa came at the right time, because, after 24 years as a Panther fan, and 6 years as a season ticket holder, I would have washed my hands of this team had I stayed in south Florida. I didn't think it was possible for management to destroy a south Florida sports organization as thoroughly as Jeffrey Loria did with the Marlins, but Viola and Rowe are keeping pace with him.
Jamal Devon Givens Oh Lord, I'm sick of losing results, I'm sick of Rowe, our season been over, Rowe should never be a coach in the first place. 😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑😑
Julie Dewey No fan appreciation night because there are no fans left and those left aren't appreciated enough to win a game for...so pathetic...may go back to following the Canes again...better team tonight
Michael Barychko I don't know what to say except when you play a team with nothing to lose sometimes you have to prepare like you are playing the Stanley Cup Champions. Panthers need a couple players with more grit or they are going to be constantly pushed around and that is exactly what happened late in this season. They need some more aggressive goal scoring players like Dino Cicarrelli that aren't afraid to scrape it up in front of the net.
Thomas Joseph This is a textbook example of how owners tank a team they want to relocate. Trade away a winning team and hire an incompetent buffoon to coach. What a disgrace.
K Evin Floyd Wasted an entire season because ownership decided to get into a pisding match with gallant. Had gallant remained the coach then the Cats would have easily won the Atlsntic again. Day one of the post season they need to fire Rowe and hire someone that knows how to coach.
Brett Michael Rocker I'd like to see us lose the remainder of the games this season, get a better lottery pick, hopefully get rid of Rowe this off season and ownership can own up to that mistake.
Jessie James No more uber rides ,10 min from my house, DONE, not with the players, but with MANAGEMENT WTF DONE, helped build that stadium 😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒
Carlos Ortega We as fans need to voice our displeasure as many people as possible email and call the Florida Panthers this season has been a major and total embarrassment. Even if they had a good reason to fire Gallant along the way it was done very unprofessional. Rowe is a joke. THE FUTURE OF HOCKEY IN SOUTH FLORIDA IS BLEAK IF THEY DONT GET THEIR ACT TOGETHER.
Marc Robinson Sad end to the season...the players that were healthy definitely did not give up...here's hoping we can add a few and keep the core together for next year...
Frank Kessler Apparently Panther Players more interested in playing in Vegas rather than fight for a position on the Panthers next season.I have lived in South Florida for over 40 years I cannot recall a more abysmal effort by any team at crunch time.There is something rotten to the core with the Franchise to utterly collapse with a relatively healthy squad
Jill Greenstein Fine Only reason we go to games at this point is that my daughter plays hockey and maybe she can pick up tips....from the other teams!
Patrick Elliott Rowe's problem is all the young players... uhh I guess all these kids.. wait we had 1 rookie on ice.. guess the injury excuse has changed.
Darryl Smith Can we now please just look forward to tanking the rest of this dismal season and hope we get a decent draft pick (in this years dismal draft) :/
Nigel McDowell this team isnt a playoff team this year.hopefully this disapointing team will be a playoff team next year.would i love to see them get in this year?sure but realisticly not gonna happen and have too many teams to jump over.panthers havent been consistent at all sadly
Alex Devis Tom Rowe is making sure he never coaches another hockey game ever. Only an idiot would hire rowe after he crawled his way into the organization with the sole agenda to name himself coach. Rowe, do yourself a favor and resign before you continue racking up all of those losses.
Charlie Fleury let face we re a very poor team .. actually very lousy team , same story all season .. can t keep leads loose on errors near the end, some players are about to make stupid amounts of money for their performance , some show up hard every night some sometimes
Scott Herron Just end this already....get a coach ...a gm....better goalies better defenseman, but the coaching really blows. Why did you fire gallant? Idiots
The Florida Panthers
The Florida PanthersTuesday, March 21st, 2017 at 12:49pm

Hear from Demers and Rowe after today's morning skate.

Mike Speers You're right Rowe, it will be good to get Ekblad back. It would also be good to get Campbell, Gudbranson and Kulikov back. Maybe even Mitchell.But they dis
Jade Carrillo Glad to have Ekblad back with his -22 +/- stat. But then only 4 Panther players are on the plus side and 3 of those are on the same line. Put that in your analytic pipe and smoke it
Damen Montanez If Ekblad gets hurt at any point in the remainder of this pathetic season, this team is going to LOSE MANY FANS! (I'm this close to jumping ship) This is another HUGE mistake that Rowe is making. A REAL coach would hold his player back from an injury like this. A 0.4% chance of making the playoffs is not worth shortening/ending a career of a 21 year old! If the panthers are so interested in emulating Pittsburgh, emulate how they treated Crosby after his concussions.
David Kessler Smooth move rushing Ekblad back after his 3rd concussion, so he can play in some glorified exhibition games, now that the Panthers have been all but mathamatically eliminated from the playoffs. Because getting getting 1 or 2 more meaningless wins in another losing, playoffless season is worth risking the long term health of a player that you're paying to be one of the mainstays of the team for the next several years.
Jill Greenstein Fine They phoned it in because they are out of playoffs. No pride . Just humiliation. Sad.
Dave Hladil Ok, I'm going to suffer again to watch the game tonight 😏. I hoe that you score more goals then opponent 😏
Mike Daniel Cant wait for Ekblad to retire at 23 because shitheads told him to play games that meant NOTHING. πŸ˜€
Mike Miller Man. Really want one of these white jerseys!
Aaron Brenker Hopefully we expose demers
Jennifer Hurvitz Good luck
