By all accounts, the Florida Panthers are enjoying a solid season. They rest atop the Atlantic Division and have aspirations of reaching the Stanley Cup final for just the second time in franchise history.

As for a Super Bowl appearance? Well, that’s setting the bar extremely high for an NHL club … although one Canadian television newscast seemed to think it was plausible.

Le Telejournal mistakenly displayed the logo of the NHL’s Panthers as opposed to the NFL’s version – you know, the one for Cam Newton’s Carolina Panthers – in its Super Bowl 50 coverage.

If you think Jaromir Jagr was hesitant to play 3-on-3 hockey in the NHL’s All-Star Game, imagine how the 43-year-old would feel facing the Denver Broncos’ aggressive defense.
