On a night where the Washington Capitals hosted the Florida Panthers, I was caught off-guard by the words, “Semin a Panther?,” when I first saw it.

Don’t worry fans, right wing Alexander Semin remains with the team and was all-over-the-ice in the Capitals 9th straight victory, 4-1 over Florida, of the season. The team is now one win away from tying the franchise mark of 10 consecutive wins, which they will attempt to reach when hosting the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday.

The headline in question linked to the following article from NHL.com where the reality behind the statement was explained. Check it out. It’s interesting and a pretty astute observation by the father of another Capitals star.
