Miami News Station Hilariously Confuses FIU And NHL's Panthers

There have been plenty of Panthers' sports teams making news in South Florida recently, with the hockey Panthers playing in their first NHL Playoff series since 2000 and the Florida International Panthers hiring a new basketball coach with the familiar last name of Pitino. But aside from the mascot, there's absolutely nothing in common between the two and unfortunately for Channel 7 News in Miami, someone got confused and delivered one of the bigger chyron fails in recent memory.
