According to Pat Donovan and Aaron Jacobson of the Pat and Aaron Show on 95.3 WDAE & AM 620 in Tampa, several Florida Panthers players were out partying at a strip club on Sunday night following a 5-1 loss in Game 3 of their second-round Stanley Cup Playoff series to the Tampa Bay Lightning at Amalie Arena on Sunday.

According to “a very good source, … a lot” of Panthers players were out late into the night. “Until at least 2:45. It could have been later, that’s when the source got the information.”

”The text at around 2:40 [AM] said something along the lines of ‘we just got a bottle and we’re leaving,’” the hosts continued on the radio show.

This is despite the fact that Game 4 of the series is slated for Monday (7 PM ET, TNT) in Tampa, where the Presidents Trophy winners’ season will be on the line.

The Lightning, who can advance to the third round for the third straight season and seventh time in the last 11 with one more win, have outscored the Panthers 11-3 in the first three games of the series.

    Tampa …. What a fun city to visit. Am I right

      How many cities have a strip joint in a UFO? Google 2001 Odyssey. Have to admit, hear more about NFL players than NHL ones.

    If no one can come up with any evidence then this never happened. And if it is true what’s wrong with that? I’m sure it’s not illegal. Let the guys have. A little bit of fun and let them have a good time. I probably would’ve done the same thing

    • novafyre says:

      When the Caps were doing so much better on the road than at home I joked that it was because on the road they just slept in their beds and thus had more energy on game day.

    • DanielleinDC says:

      Maybe because it’s not a good idea to party until the wee hours the night before a game, especially when one more loss means you’ll be cleaning out your lockers in a couple of days.

      Look, if the guys have a few days between games in the regular season, who would give a shit. But in the playoffs? No. Buckle down and focus on making sure you’re in tip-top shape to play.

    Which club???

    Space Odyssey
    Doll House
    Mons Venus

    • Jon Sorensen says:

      Lol. You’ve been down Dale Mabry I see. 😉

      • novafyre says:

        I figured that they wanted to see the UFO at 2001 Odyssey.

        Brunette has denied it but another radio host has confirmed it after checking with his strip club sources. Radio hosts have a hard job.

        I don’t know if the Cats have any Black Aces travelling with them but if they do, I would imagine they were the ones at the club, not the older players on the ice tonight.

    Follow the science. Can you prove the lap dances led to their game 3 loss? Maybe that’s all they were thinking about and should have gone out on Saturday night. Idiots.

  7. Romam says:

    That why they never be champions

    How about some names? Or is this yet another fake story?
