Florida Panthers announced today it will not longer sell rats at their team store, after the plastic toys landed on the ice during the game of Game 5.
Panthers coach Kevin Dineen blames Devils fans for trying to get his team in trouble and drawing a two-minute penalty.
“I think a lot of Devil fans have been buying those rats and they throw them on the ice trying to get us that two-minute penalty.”
Earlier in the day, Panthers President Michael Yormark tweeted “Panthers will not sell rats at pantherland. This is a result of visiting fans throwing rats on the ice during the game.”
Then, later in the day, Yormark tweeted, “Rumor has it that cats fans are bringing rats to new jersey. #traditionhitstheroad.”
