The Florida Panthers fell to Seattle Sunday, making it two straight losses and three losses out of the last four games. That puts them in an unenviable position of chasing multiple teams for a playoff spot near the seasons’s halfway mark, writes CBS 4’s Steven Goldstein.
The Panthers haven’t been able to get their full team in gear with Aaron Ekblad’s injury in the third game of the season and Aleksander Barkov getting sick for weeks. Anton Lundell and Spencer Knight are the latest illness casualties.
The team is in sixth place in the Atlantic Division, with a 13-12 record.
