Florida Panthers: 2011-12 Southeast Division Champions

The Florida Panthers pulled off quite a feat Saturday as they went from worst-to-first by claiming the franchise's first Southeast Division title.

The Panthers finished the past two seasons at the bottom of the division for the first time in franchise history. Last year's last place finish in the Eastern Conference was also a first. 

ChiefsparadeFlorida ends Washington's four-year run atop the division as the Panthers spent 128 days atop the division -- including the past 43.

Add a few more months to that tally.

The Panthers become the first team aside from Washington to win the division since Atlanta won its one and only in 2007.
