It is rare to hear a team publicly admit it’s time to panic, acknowledging that their season is spiraling out of control.
Yet this is where the Panthers find themselves after a humiliating 7-1 home loss to the Flyers on Saturday night.
“You have to panic right now,” winger Tomas Fleischmann said quietly. “We have to bring everything we have. It’s a short season. We have to panic right now.”
The Panthers are most definitely sweating after losing their fourth consecutive game just five games into the season.
