The Florida Panthers have proven they are an elite team this season in the National Hockey League, but that doesn’t seem to apply when they plan the expansion Seattle Kracken.
The Kracken dealt the Panthers a 5-3 loss on Sunday, the second time they’ve beaten them in as many meetings.
“We had to chase the game and on the road they are hard games to win when you’re chasing the game,” Florida interim coach Andrew Brunette said. “We put ourselves in a real tough position.”
The Panthers are tied with Tampa Bay for the league’s top spot with 61 points.
