The Florida Panthers are not where they thought they be after coming off last season where they finished first in the Southeast Division. The team has been plagued with injuries including Kris Versteeg, with an upper-body injury and Dmitry Kulikov who is set to be out for four weeks, that is hurting the line-up. Either way the Panthers are looking to keep the streak alive and make it a repeat to win the Southeast Division by the time the season is complete. That being said, the Panthers have still managed to capture fans hearts with goals that are one of kind, so here are the top five goals to date this season!
Number 5: Peter Mueller Goal Against Buffalo Sabres Feb 3, 2013
Drew Shore skates away with his first NHL point with a pass to Peter Mueller. This goal had Mueller on a four game point streak after scoring against the Sabres.
Number 4: George Parros Goal Against Buffalo Sabres Feb 3, 2013
Steven Weiss is able to show what great sense of ice he has with a blind pass that gets the puck to Big Geroge Parros for his first goal as a Florida Panther.
Number 3: Shawn Matthias Against Boston Bruins March 14, 2013
Matthias shorthanded goal is not something you will see everyday, after the hustle to beat Hamilton he dives to get up and proceeds to score against the Bruins.
Number 2: Tomas Kopecky Hatrick Against Pittsburgh Penguins Feb 26, 2013
