Interesting Fact

The name of the team Florida Panthers is taken from an endangered species of Cougar that used to live on the swamps of Southern Florida in United States.

History

A team was added to the Miami Area when NHL first skated into the Sunshine state. Wayne Huizenga was awarded with a franchise in 1992. The team was granted with some good players including the former winner of Vezina John Vanbiesbrouck. After finalizing logos and uniforms, the team also made the announcement of its financial commitment to the panther preservation cause. Florida Panthers played their first game in Chicago against Blackhawks that was skated to 4-4 tie. After three days, they entertained the record crowd of 27,227 in Tamp Bay by beating the Cross State Lightning. The first season of the team was marked by success. The second season of the Panthers faced a delay by four months lockout. The battle of the team began at the end of the season for the last playoff spot in the East.

The team missed the playoffs in first two seasons. After missing playoffs, Panthers made the best record in the East. The franchise became the part of the league in the 1993-94 NHL Season. The team enjoyed a very unusual goal celebration in Miami in 1995-96 NHL Season. The fans of the team began to throw rubber rats on the ice. The story behind this act was smacking of a rat with a hockey stick in the locker room of the team at the Mimi Arena.

They made their way to the Stanley Cups in 1996. The Florida Panthers won five games against Boston Bruins. The team reached to the Stanley Cup Finals after upsetting the top seeded Philadelphia Flyers and the second seeded Pittsburgh Penguins but swept by the Colorado Avalanche in four games.

The team began the next season with the successful start which was faded in the second half of the season. After frustrating period of years, the team was sold out by Huizenga to an ownership group lead by Alan Cohan. The season 2001-02 was very frustrating for the team but the optimism let not them put their courage down.
