Preview:
The Caps put on a good show against the Oil now it’s time to take it up a notch against the Southeastern Division. The Caps welcome Florida into Verizon Center on Saturday and look to keep ahead of the Panthers. The Caps are 7-2-1 in their last 10 games and have moved into 3rd place in the SE Division. Look for them to bury the Panthers and break out of the one goal game pattern.

Joe’s prediction: Caps 7 FLA 2

Dear Mr,

I'm an intern with startup widget 1000 and I created a news widget for Florida Panthers News.
It's updated every hour with Florida Panthers headlines from several different sports websites like ESPN, FOX Yahoo,etc. (Take a look: http://www.widget1000.com/)

Can we add Florida Panthers blog to the widget,too? That means that every time you post to your blog the headline of the post will show up on the widget and link directly to your post.
Anyone who puts this widget on their start page or on their website will see your Florida Panthers posts too. It's a powerful and free way to publicize your site.

Finally, would you add your Florida Panthers News Widget to your site so that others can see it?
Everyone who grabs the widget will automatically link to you so it's great for your search engine rankings. Plus, it shows a lot of stories about Florida Panthers and since it's updated every hour it is fresh and will make your site even more appealing than it already is.

What do you think?

Go Florida Panthers
