Video: Panthers score and here come the rats!


Just like old times.

After the Florida Panthers finally got on the score board in the second period on a goal from Jonathan Huberdeau against the New Jersey Devils, fans at the BB&T Center in Sunrise threw hundreds of plastic rats onto the ice — just like they used to during Florida’s playoff run in 1996.

That prompted this warning:

Now, later in the game, as Huberdeau scored his second of the night, more rats were thrown onto the ice, prompting officials to call a penalty against the Panthers.

Quinton Howden was called upon to serve the penalty.
