The Panthers will then travel to Texas for a pair of games against the Stars; the first game (Sept. 18) will be at AmericanAirlines Center in Dallas. The second will be at San Antonio's AT&T Center -- the home of the San Antonio Spurs as well as the Panthers' AHL affiliate Rampage.

The final three preseason games will be against divisional rival Tampa Bay. The first game will be in Tampa on Sept. 21. The second will be played off I-75 in Estero on Sept. 26 and the final game will be in Sunrise on Sept. 28. The regular season is expected to begin the following week.

Sept. 20: vs. Dallas post game the final cuts so the Rampage know their team. Lot less players flying to Tampa Bay. You know the happiest guy on the plane to Tampa is they rookie who wasn't left behind in San Antonio.


i was wondering if you could help me. I'm coming to Miami, Florida for vacation in the middle of september and i really would like to go see some NHL action. I know that the regular season hasn't started yet at that time, but the there is some preseason games, as you said in the text. So my question is, if it's possible to buy tickets for example the game in Tampa Bay Sept. 21, 2013? I would really appreciate if you could answer me as soon as possible via email. Thank You for advance.
