Ice in Their Veins: The NHL’s Florida Panthers Mount a Comeback

 

During the 2011-2012 NHL season, the Florida Panthers made an improbable run for the Southeast Division title and qualified for the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time in 12 years. However, the team has since been unable to recapture that magic and fans are hungry for another exciting year.

Fortunately, it’s looking like the Panthers are on the comeback trail thanks to several changes that were instituted over the summer. Most notable among them is the appointment of Gerard Gallant, former Columbus Blue Jackets head coach and Montreal Canadiens assistant coach, as the new Florida Panthers head coach.

“I’m really excited about [joining the Panthers]; being the head coach before in Columbus … was my first time being an NHL coach and I really enjoyed that experience,” Gallant explained. “Getting a second opportunity to come to Florida with a very good hockey team – we really improved our hockey club this summer during the free agency period – I’m really looking forward to it.” More…

One of my biggest pet peeves is buying a bag of lettuce and having to throw it out just two days after it’s purchased because it spoiled to the point of being unsalvageable. The plastic bag it’s in can’t be saved either because the lettuce’s rotten water has dirtied it.

So how does one keep food fresh long enough to use all of it? Laura Wilkinson Sinton and her business partner and lifelong friend Liz Gullum figured out the solution: FreshTape®. This resealable tape was first inspired when both Laura and Liz realized chip clips were germ-infested and bug-infested inventions, so they took 18 months to design and test FreshTape®, Sinton said in an email. It’s an eco-friendly and completely recyclable alternative to plastic bags and bag clips. More…
