Panthers Fire Shots at Playoff Opponents

They say teams who win should do so graciously but don't tell that to the Florida Panthers. Having just gotten back into their Stanley Cup Final series against the Vegas Golden Knights following a thrilling OT win in Game 3 on Thursday, the Panthers may have just been caught gloating about their series wins in these playoffs before they've even sealed the deal.

Before tonight's Game 4 at FLA LIVE Arena in Sunrise, FL, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press tweeted a photo of the team's rally towels attached to each seat.



Extra Motivation for Vegas



Fans will be waving towels adorned with the crossed-out names of the three cities whose teams the Panthers have already beaten: Boston, Toronto, and Carolina.

Hubris is a hell of a drug, but it remains to be seen whether or not the Panthers can back that up tonight to even the series (the game starts at 8 p.m. EST tonight).

Regardless, it's a fun way for the team to pour salt into the Bruins, Leafs, and Hurricanes' wounds, and to pump fans up by celebrating their most recent successes.
