Snarling Toward Victory

The Florida Panthers want to make sure lightning doesn’t strike twice. When the puck drops tonight, the Panthers will be facing Southeast division rival Tampa Bay Lightning for a third time this NHL season.

In the first meeting in Tampa Bay, former Panther Chris Gratton propelled the Lightning to victory in a low-scoring affair that ended 2-1. To even up the early-season series, the Panthers had to hold on to win their next match 6-4, after almost losing control of a 4-0 lead. Sweet charity will be on our side -- Panthers’ rookie defenseman Cory Murphy began a personal pledge drive at the beginning of November. He’ll be donating $250 for every goal and $100 for every assist he records the rest of the season to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. The sportsmanlike act is being performed in the name of Murphy’s mom, a breast cancer survivor. Help the Panthers protect home ice as the battle for bragging rights in the state of Florida begins at 7:30 at the BankAtlantic Center.
Mon., Nov. 5, 7:30 p.m., 2007
