About the Florida Panthers Hockey Team

The Florida Panthers are a National Hockey League team (NHL) that plays their home games at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, FL. They play in the Atlantic division of the Eastern Conference. Other NHL teams in the same division include the Toronto Maple LeafsBoston BruinsMontreal Canadians, Buffalo SabresTampa Bay LightningOttawa Senators, and the Detroit Red Wings.

The Florida Panthers entered the NHL as a new expansion team in 1993 and played its first official game at the beginning of the 1993-94 NHL hockey season. The first year that the Panthers played was actually not a bad one, considering that they were an expansion team. The team fell just one game shy of finishing with a .500 record as they went 33-34- 17 and failed to make the playoffs. Just two years later, Florida found themselves in the Stanley Cup Finals and the Panthers were getting huge fan support in the Miami area as fans came to see them play at the Miami Arena.

In 1998, the Panthers would move from Miami Arena, where they played for the first 5 seasons, to a brand new home in Sunrise FL. named National Car Rental Center (Now the BB&T Center). After just coming off a Stanley Cup Finals appearance just 2 years earlier, fans and management had high hopes for them. Playing in their new arena for the first season in 1998-1999, the Panthers were led by center Ray Whitney who had 26 goals and 38 assists for a total of 64 points. Still, coach Terry Murrey was unable to lead his team into the playoffs as the Panthers finished the season with a 30-34-18 record.

Florida Panthers Playoff Appearances

The Florida Panthers have made it to the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs a total of 5 times in the history of their franchise. They have missed the playoffs at a far better clip than they have made it, by not making the post-season 21 out of the 26 years that they have been in the league. Only once in those playoff appearances have they managed to make it past the first round of the playoffs and that was in 1996. Here are the years that the Panthers have made the playoffs:

  • 1996
  • 1997
  • 2000
  • 2012
  • 2016

Florida Panthers Stanley Cup Finals Appearances

The Florida Panthers have only made one appearance in the NHL Stanley Cup Finals and that was in 1996, the third year that they were in the NHL. They had a great 1995-96 regular season by piling up a  record of 41-31-10 and finishing 3rd in the Atlantic Southeast Division. Florida made it to the Finals by winning their first three playoff series against the Boston Bruins 4-1, Philadelphia Flyers 4-2, and Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3.

 

The Stanley Cup Finals were not as good to Florida as the playoffs were. The Colorado Avalanche handled the Panthers quite easily and swept the series 4-0. Even though the Panthers lost in the Finals, it was a huge step forward for the young organization at the time. To this day, that 1996 Florida Panthers Playoff team was the only one in team history to make it out of the 1st round of the NHL playoffs.
