Panthers_Brain_Campbell_2013The Panthers haven’t played too many complete games as they did Sunday night against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden.

Yet all it took was a few mistakes early in the third for the Rangers to take a 4-3 win and extend Florida’s losing streak to nine.

The Panthers, 0-5-4 since Oct. 19, got a Brian Campbell goal with seven minutes left and made a real run at the Rangers and Henrik Lundqvist, but it just wasn’t enough.

“You’re not going to win games when you turn the puck over,” said coach Peter Horachek, who is 0-2 since taking over for the fired Kevin Dineen on Friday.

“We’re not going to get any better until we decide we’re not going to manage the puck that way. Those were unforced errors. You can’t win games that way. It’s unacceptable.”
