Panthers - Devils Game 7: What to Expect E-mail
Written by Leon

I must (well, I am eager to) admit: I have been negative on the Panthers for a few years and I was negative about their playoff hopes going into this season and even during the season as the team was clinging to a playoff spot and even led their division. They managed to prove me wrong - or did they?

Florida is arguably in a position to silence its most ardent critics. Their NHL playoffs performance so far exceeded everyone's expectations and has seemingly proved the naysayers wrong. The Panthers led this series twice and had New Jersey on the verge of elimination, in their own building, in a game that came down to a single sudden-death shot. A shot that could have been the Panthers'. Except it wasn't.

Where to Shop for Groceries


Even though Sawgrass Mills Mall and it's huge and empty parking lot is right in the middle of Urban Sawgrass, our neighborhood is still fairly easy to walk and bike. Those of you living at Sawgrass Reserve do have a longer walk or ride to Publix and/or Target though.
