When I lived in Meadowland Cove in the early 90's when first developed there were alligators in the lake. One came into the pool and my youngest son thought it was a float to jump on till we saw it open its eyes! That's when we complained to the HOA we needed fencing. Even though the Wellington East club had canoes they stopped using them. My question is it now ☆Free of Alligators ☆ for the safety of the boat parade???

How can you beat the good teams and then go lose to Ottawa and Edmonton 🤔😳🤔SMH

25 giveaways nuff said right there

Gee...nothing like bragging up your goalie,and shooting down your players.Yes,they had a bad game,but Lou put the winning goal in himself.

Worst day. Colombus, New Jersey and Philadelphia all won. This is why you start reimer for a few games in a row......

Sorry that third period was SAD

There is a great chance to reach playoffs , just stop with the toothless defence , need Petro back asap.

First period the goals just didn’t want to go in. Many chances. 3rd period was a total bust. Mentally checked out.

My take away is don’t have your announcers brag about a scenario 2/3 of the way through a game. As soon as Goldstein bragged about being undefeated when leading after two, I knew we’d lose

Guess they don't want to play in late April

Good game, defense fell apart in the third

It's hard. They still have to win almost every game, and that's pretty impossible this time of year. They need one of the teams in front of them to tank.

This was the back breakers. Afraid they won’t make the playoffs now as this was one of the games that should’ve been won and they don’t deserve to be in playoffs when playing this way.

What a shame. Defense asleep in 2rd

Defends suck today and a couple of soft goals today as well

Not only didn’t they score on the power play but they gave up a shorty.Panthers played emotionless nonchalant game.Edmonton looked like a Team fighting to make playoffs.Panthers played like Team jockeying for tee off times

Don't give up now panthers team! It will be hard but we can make the playoffs i know it! Go panthers team!!! :) :)

I think the end may be near. Devils, Jackets, Flyers all won.

Yandle is god awful and Luongo is god awful. Bench them both next game.

Don't give up now! Finish strong! I want that wildcard spot!

On lâche pas!!

Another terrible loss

Why the play Luu??? I guessing they won't reach play off

Keep Mamin in the lineup.

shoulda won that one

Once again losing to mediocre team decreasing their chances to make the playoffs. The fair-weather fans of South Florida do not have the patience for this. The Panthers should have beaten the Senators and the Oilers. The Devils and the Blue Jackets are taking care of business; that’s why they will make the playoffs.

Stupid loss. And I left out the F’ing part...

Lu just can’t leave a game without some dumb goal.

What a great Way to bring in Haley! He does NOTHING! Bring Mamin in and we can literally beat everyone

I don't know why this coach keep mc cann. That guy is compleatly useless.

Need to do away with that Llama it's the dumbest thing ever.... and ya lots and lots of folks think the same

And everyone else won! Makes sense to bring in Haley

😢 I was hoping for a win.
