Panthers’ Kindl dresses, plays 0 minutes as precautionary defenceman

Alex Petrovic scored the tiebreaking goal and the Florida Panthers evened their series with the New York Islanders at 2-2.

Florida Panthers defenceman Jakub Kindl rode the pine Wednesday just about as much as anybody can.

He played zero minutes in a 2-1 Panthers win.

Florida dressed seven rear guards as a precaution and an incident in the pre-game skate nearly brought him into action.

Dmitry Kulikov led all Panthers defencemen in ice time, skating for 23:12.
