No. 19:  Florida Panthers

Previous:  22nd 

Season Record: 13-12-4

This Florida team has been finding a way to get a few points recently.  They defeated the Vancouver Canucks 4-2 on Saturday, and have taken things to overtime in four of the last seven games (winning one of them).

They appear to be rallying around the loss of their head coach, Gerard Gallant, by fighting tooth and nail and keeping games close.  Now if they could just get over that hump and start winning a few more.
