Kevin Dineen said there were “plenty of negatives you can keep pointing at” before Monday’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The list of negatives just continues to grow — as does the Panthers’ losing streak.
Florida went winless on a four-game homestand that concluded with a 3-0 loss to a Maple Leafs team that felt right at home inside the BB&T Center. The Panthers haven’t won in five consecutive games and went 0-1-3 at home during that stretch.
The Panthers play the next two on the road: Thursday at Philadelphia (site of Florida’s most recent victory on Feb. 7) and Friday in Pittsburgh.
“It’s frustrating times, and we have to find ways to be more consistent,” defenseman Brian Campbell said. “It stings a lot. We wanted to come into [the homestand] and make it to .500, and we’re not there. We have a lot of work to do going on the road. To have a fairly good road trip, then come home for this, it hurts.”
The Panthers failed to pick up a point for the first time since a 5-0 pasting at Washington to start this slide on Feb. 9.
