NHL Lockout 2012: Florida Panthers Cancel 3 Preseason Games

The NHL announced on Wednesday that all preseason games through September 30th have been cancelled. For the Florida Panthers, that means their home game against the Nashville Predators has been cancelled, as well as two games against the Dallas Stars in Dallas.

The Panthers three remaining preseason games are all against the Tampa Bay Lightning. On Tuesday, Oct. 2nd, the two will meet in Estero, FL. The Lightning will host the Panthers on Thursday, Oct. 4th, before the preseason closes out on Saturday, Oct. 6th in Sunrise. Those three games are still tentatively scheduled, but will not be played unless the NHL and NHL Players Association can come to an agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement. As of now, it is unlikely that an agreement will be made soon enough for these games to be played.
