    Comeback Cats: Florida, down 2 late, rallies to top Pens 5-4

    Aaron Ekblad had the simplest assessment of how opening night went for the Florida Panthers. Florida's top defenseman — who missed the second half of last season with a broken left leg — scored twice late in the third period to single-handedly erase a two-goal Florida deficit, Carter Verhaeghe's second goal of the game came 1:37 into overtime and the Panthers beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-4 on Thursday night. “Crazy beginning to the season," Panthers coach Joel Quenneville said.
