Canes Snap Slump With 3-1 Win Over Panthers

Not sure if it was the knowledge of home cooking with seven of the next 10 games at the PNC Arena, playing a third bad team in a row or the desperation that something has to change, and change quickly, as the season could have started slipping away, but the Canes pulled through with a satisfying 3-1 win over the Florida Panthers Tuesday, November 7, 2017.
