Quenneville earns 900th win as NHL coach, Panthers edge Rangers


  • Joel Quenneville earned his 900th victory as an NHL coach when the Florida Panthers defeated the New York Rangers 4-3 at BB&T Center on Saturday.
  • Quenneville, who is in his first season with the Panthers, is 900-537-142 with 77 ties in 1,655 games, trailing only Hockey Hall of Famer Scotty Bowman (1,244 wins in 2,141 games).

“To be mentioned in the same sentence with (Bowman), with what he’s achieved, is pretty amazing,” said Quenneville, who won the Stanley Cup as coach of the Chicago Blackhawks in 2010, 2013 and 2015. “We had a great run in Chicago, some fun times there, but he’s accomplished something that is more than amazing.”

  • Evgenii Dadonov scored twice, and Jonathan Huberdeau and Keith Yandle each had three assists for the Panthers (10-5-5), who have won three of their past four. Sergei Bobrovsky made 30 saves.
  • Artemi Panarin and Ryan Strome each had a goal and an assist for the Rangers (8-8-2), who have lost two straight. Henrik Lundqvist made 26 saves.

“I think we did a lot of good things tonight, but obviously our penalty kill (2-of-4) has to get better,” Rangers coach David Quinn said. “I thought we were on top of them and had a lot of great scoring chances. They’re a real good hockey team. It just wasn’t enough.”
