Rats! Sales to be stopped at Panthers home games

- April 23rd, 2012

NEWARK, N.J. — Sales of rats will end at Florida Panthers home playoff games, and apparently it’s the fault of New Jersey Devils fans.
Panthers president Michael Yormark (@PanthersYormark) tweeted on Monday that “Panthers will not sell rats at pantherland. This is a result of visiting fans throwing rats on the ice during the game.”
Yormark also tweeted: “Panthers will not tolerate any fan throwing items on the ice during our game. If seen, they will be ejected from the arena immediately.”
And then: “Rumor has it that cats fans are bringing rats to new jersey.”
Devils goalie Martin Brodeur had said after Game 5 on Saturday that the rats coming on to the ice during the game at the BankAtlantic Center was “a pain.”
Of course, there might be just one Panthers home game remaining in the playoffs if they lost the next two games against the Devils. If the Devils win Game 6 on Tuesday, the deciding Game 7 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal will be on Thursday night in Sunrise.
