The Florida Panthers had a rough mid-February schedule on the road, but March seems promising with their fifth win in a row at the BB&T Center.
The Panthers (31-25) beat the Buffalo Sabres (20-34), 4-1 on the ice. This win on Friday night brought them closer to the second wild card spot in the Eastern Conference. The Panthers are right behind the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Carolina Hurricanes for the wild card spot, both teams have points of 69, while the Panthers have 68.
On Saturday, the Florida Panthers and the Calgary Flames will hit the ice at 10 p.m.
This will be the second time these two teams will see each other in the regular season. Earlier this year, the Flames beat the Panthers, 4-2, at home, so the Cats are looking for redemption on the ice on the road.
With the NFL Draft coming at the end of the month everyone is wondering who is going to end up where. It is a college football player’s dream to declare their spot in the draft and get picked by a NFL team in the spring.
The Florida Gators had their annual spring game in Gainesville, Friday night, so Gator fans can see what to expect of the 2017 football season. However, it was also a game to see who would be the starting quarterback for the 2017 season.
I grew up in a football driven household. My dad a Dallas Cowboys fan and my mom a Miami Dolphins fan. However, as I got older I stuck with the Dallas Cowboys. I remember being highly invested in sports from a young age.
There was this game I remember seeing my dad watch when we were in Orlando at the Nickelodeon Hotel about to check out, but he couldn’t pull away from the TV because it was an important game. I don’t know what exactly happened, but the Cowboys lost that game. When I mentioned this memory to him recently, he said that if they had won that game it would’ve taken them to the Super Bowl.
