|FLORIDA: SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) - When the lockout ended and last season started for the Florida Panthers, there was so much promise.
A banner commemorating the team's division title was unfurled on opening night, the franchise's star-in-waiting scored on his first NHL shot and everything looked bright.
That good feeling disappeared in a hurry. The Panthers went from celebrating to collapsing without warning, and wound up finishing the season having given up more goals than any other team while being tied for last in goal-scoring - and posting the worst record in the NHL.
``It wasn't pleasant,'' Panthers captain Ed Jovanovski said.
One disaster after another - injuries and scoring droughts, mostly - plagued Florida last season, and the Panthers haven't forgotten. When camp opened earlier this month, the Panthers talked of both a need to move ahead but the necessity to remember how painful it was to be out of the playoff chase so early last season.
``I think we all pretty well know that we don't want to have another disaster like last year,'' Panthers general manager Dale Tallon said. ``Guys are professional. They should be able to figure it out and if they don't figure it out, I'll figure it out for them.''
Panthers coach Kevin Dineen said his team cannot ignore the memory of last season's freefall. Not counting goals awarded in shootouts, Florida skaters scored 109 times last year, tied with Nashville for the worst total in the league.
``We had to acknowledge what happened as a group. We had to understand that there was ownership by all of us, from the GM to the coaching to the players and I think we all did that,'' Dineen said. ``I think the commitment was made to be better. There's been some hard decisions made this summer ... but we need to put a team and a style of that gives us the best chance to win.''
Changes were made, such as letting longtime Florida forward Stephen Weiss leave through free agency, and bringing Stanley Cup-winning goaltender Tim Thomas into the organization as a veteran influence. Thomas and Jacob Markstrom figure to get the bulk of the work in net early.
EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) - The Edmonton Oilers have been stuck in rebuilding mode for some time, but the hope this season is that this youthful bunch - laced with first-round picks - returns to a place this franchise used to dominate.
Indeed, the Oilers - a once-dynastic franchise - has not qualified for the playoffs in seven straight seasons. But there is a benefit to Edmonton's on-ice failings: The Oilers have been able to stockpile high-end talent in defenseman Justin Schultz and forwards Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Nail Yakupov, Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle.
Many inside and outside the organization believe Edmonton's collection of talent will eventually lead the Oilers back to a Stanley Cup, which would be their sixth. For now, though, a playoff berth would do just fine.
Edmonton opens against Winnipeg on Oct. 1.

*Panthers-Oilers Preview* =========================
By PAUL DIGIACOMO STATS Senior Editor
Florida (6-12-4) at Edmonton (6-15-2), 9:30 p.m. EDT
The Florida Panthers and Edmonton Oilers may be two of the worst teams in the NHL, but they are feeling good about their recent efforts.
One of these clubs with walk away with its first three-game winning streak of the season when the Panthers continue a road-heavy stretch Thursday night with their first visit to Edmonton in over three years.
Florida (6-12-4) is in a stretch of playing eight of nine away from home and opened a season-high five-game trip with a 3-2 loss to Minnesota on Friday, its ninth straight on the road.
The Panthers, however, ended that skid Saturday with a 4-1 win over Colorado and beat Vancouver 3-2 in a shootout Tuesday. They are 3-3-0 under interim coach Peter Horachek, who took over for the fired Kevin Dineen after a 3-9-4 start.
Goaltender Tim Thomas has led the way as Florida has won three of four. He's started each game during that span, posting a 1.97 goals-against average and .931 save percentage.
"He's won a Stanley Cup before, he's won a Vezina, and that's why," Horachek said. "He's confident (and) he's got a smile on his face when he is doing it.
"He gives our guys confidence."
Thomas didn't visiting Edmonton (6-15-2) in a 4-3 overtime loss Nov. 5. He's won all three of his starts versus the Oilers and registered shutouts in the past two, last facing them Oct. 27, 2008, and coming away with a 1-0 overtime victory while with Boston.
Left wing Jonathan Huberdeau has also provided a spark for Florida. He scored in the first two games of the trip and had the only goal in the shootout Tuesday.
"I'm trying to do different things every time, and it worked out tonight," Huberdeau told the Panthers' official website. "... We found a way to win in the shootout. It was important to get two points for us."
Florida hasn't earned many points in Edmonton, going 1-6-0 with a tie after recording wins in its first two visits in March 1994 and January 1996.
The Panthers are also 1-4-4 in the last nine overall matchups, and they'll be taking on an Oilers team that is rolling offensively.
Edmonton scored four times in the third period of Saturday's 4-2 win at Calgary and cruised to a 7-0 victory over visiting Columbus on Tuesday.
David Perron had a career-high four-point game with two goals and two assists against the Blue Jackets as the Oilers ended a six-game home losing streak and improved to 2-7-0 on their own ice.
Edmonton was 1-9-1 in its previous 11 games - the only win coming at Florida - before putting together its second set of back-to-back victories.
"The wins have been few and far between and to have a game like that, especially at home, it's good for the team, but more importantly it's good for our fans," coach Dallas Eakins said.
"They've been suffering just as much as we have. It's nice to give them something to go home feeling good about."
Rookie center Mark Arcobello scored the only two goals of his career, the second in overtime, in the first meeting with the Panthers. Forward Scottie Upshall scored twice for Florida, giving him seven goals in 13 career games against Edmonton.
