In an effort to quickly re-energize and promote ticket sales the Florida Panthers have announced their new ticket campaign for the start of the season. The slogan for the campaign will be “Get It On”, and will coincide with the organization dedicating the season to you “The 7th Man”.
Here is the official announcement from the Florida Panthers website.
As the announcement indicates, the Panthers are coming off one of their most succesful campaigns in their short history, and the abbreviated season due to the lockout, will create some intense excitement for all. The hope is that fans take advantage of this offer, and fill the BB & T Center to create a playoff like atmosphere every night. Whether there are 48 or 50 total games, each game will be important, and a quick start is needed, and your support is wanted.
There’s a lot to look forward to in the coming days and weeks as we all prepare for the start of the season.
* New Podcasts from the gang here at Panther Parkway are in the works!
* Practices are slated to start as early as this weekend. Will we see you there?
* The formation of this season’s roster, which will include some new faces, as well as the return of some of last season’s hero’s.
* The tentative date for the start of the season is Saturday January 19th.
* You heard of Johnny Football haven’t you? Well we can look forward to “getting it on” with “Johnny Hockey“, as Jonathan Huberdeau is expected to make his NHL debut.

The San Antonio Rampage finished out the 2012 portion of their schedule last weekend picking up a possible 5 out of 6 points with contests against the Oklahoma City Barons, Houston Aeros, and Charlotte Checkers. The Barons edged the Rampage in a shootout Friday night at the Cox Convention Center, but the Rampage prevailed the following night in overtime at home before winning in regulation Sunday against the Checkers.
San Antonio started off 2013 with a 3-0 victory against the Peoria Rivermen this past Friday at the AT&T Center. Midway though the first, Jon Rheault got the first goal of the night with James Wright picking up the lone assist. The Rampage kept things rolling in the second when both Drew Shore and Greg Rallo put the puck past Peoria goalie, Mike McKenna. Jacob Markström turned away all 26 shots the Rivermen fired at him to add another shutout to his name. Read the rest of this entry
