  Panthers beat Rangers, set franchise record with eighth straight home win For eight consecutive home games - including Saturday night's 4-3 shootout win over the New York Rangers - the Florida Panthers orchestrated a symphony of victories, of last-second wins, of blowout thrashings, of goaltending excellence and of offensive firepower. They stole games from elite teams and buried inferior ones.
