Panthers Third-Period Rally Falls Short
For the first 45 minutes of Saturday night’s 4-3 loss against the New York Islanders, the Florida Panthers played much like you’d expect the 30th place team in the National Hockey League to play: Allowing the Islanders to capitalize on defensive miscues while not cashing in the few opportunities they did have.
However, facing a 3-0 deficit, Florida’s offense found it’s on switch and exploded for a three goal outburst over a 1:43 stretch early in the third. New Panther T.J. Brennan, acquired less than a day ago, made a spectacular first impression with his new club by opening the run with a put back goal. Thirty four seconds later, Marcel Goc converted below the right circle, thanks to a seeing-eye pass from Tomas Fleischamann to make it 3-2. Mike Santorelli’s tip-in 1:09 later brought the Cats all the way back before the first goal could even be announced to the home crowd.

T.J. Brennan Impresses In Panthers Debut
What could have easily been a considered a minor trade for the Florida Panthers turned into a big deal on Saturday night as newly acquired defenseman T.J.Brennan didn’t take long to make his mark on the lineup.
Paired with veteran Brian Campbell to start the game, Brennan quickly acclimated himself to the Panthers’ game plan and became an important player almost immediately. Through two periods, Brennan was responsible defensively and even had a few nice slap shots on the power play - an offensive tool that has been missing since the departure of Jason Garrison.
When asked about his seamless transition into the Panthers’ lineup, Brennan had this to say:
“They kept emphasizing a simple game … I wasn’t gunna come in here and try and do too much … They told me to shoot when I can if I have any opportunities and I tried to do that tonight and it was good to get reunited back with Kevin (Dineen).”
