When the official NHL schedule came out, I'm sure the Islanders, Penguins and Lightning all circled their calendars with glee, thinking a home opening victory was a sure thing.  Four games in, four home openers (including their own) and three victories later, the Cats are sitting pretty with a 3-1 record.

How did this happen?  Some point to Dale Tallon. With his glowing track record bringing the Stanley Cup back to Chicago, we've suspected it is just a matter of time before he does the same for the Florida Panthers.

Some suspect Kevin Dineen, Gord Murphy and the rest of the coaching staff.  These aren't the same dump and run Panthers we are used to.

Whatever it is, it looks pretty good so far.
